Pop Up MMI screen

Did we get screwed on this one also.

From what I know the center MMI screen is stationary and does not fold down.

I'm watching this youtube doing a review on the 2014 Q3 in the UK and at the :30 spot the screen is folded down and at :40 second spot the screen is poping up.

Yup - it saved $40 which helped keep the price (and warranty costs, parts etc) down...

So is it possible to make it fold down?

Yes, but the parts are a bit pricey in the aftermarket (I'd guess >€100), available only in the ROW market, and you'll need to do some coding to make it work (prolly thru both the J519 and the J285 or J794). But installation shouldn't be hard and the coding neither - just will need to be done. I bet it's 'almost' PnP...

It's manual in the UK. It takes a physical action to open and close it.

Physical action really shouldn't be a problem but what would need to be coded if it's just a hinge for the open/close.

The manual version should be pretty easy I think, and you're right, THAT would not require any coding. Plus the parts shouldn't be too bad either. I'd go for that - In Germany I believe it's electric and THAT requires coding to interface with the ignition, MMI, etc. - but maybe I'm just thinking of the A8 etc...

Lightbulb Group Buy on the manual version parts anyone???

Hey - I'd start a Group Buy, say ten units to start - and see if we could get a good discount from the dealer for it ... Of course we'd need a volunteer in the ROW or UK to check on it. I'd volunteer to receive them all in the US and redistribute ...

If someone gives me part numbers, I'm happy to do the legwork over here in the U.K.
