Hi all i have the parking plus system on my q5 with the standard beep and on screen illistration not the full colour picture, ive been wondering if i purchased and fitted the camera unit to the rear tailgate is it compatible with the rest of the system and would it give me the full photo picture image, currently i get the car image on the screen not a camera picture. would all the wiring be the same ??

If you want the full as-if-option-was-ordered experience (fully integrated with MMI) then you need a professional retrofit - its not as simple as buying the camera and connecting it up. It costs £1350 from a quality independent like http://www.bespokeautotech.co.uk/vehiclespecific_audi.htm and probably more from your dealer.

You can go aftermarket but you'd need to have a different screen. You can't just pump a PAL signal out the MMI and hope it will work - it won't.

Probably better just to live with it and order it next time.
