    I have an Audi A3 1.4 TFSI sportback 2012

    I would like to know if it is possible to fit a USB port onto the radio, so I can play music via this.

    I have searched quite a few forums on the internet for this but have been unable to find a solution. Some have said in the glove box there is an adapter to fit the USB too.
    But unfortunately this isn't on my car, only on other models.

    Is it just a case of removing the radio, fitting an adapter and threading this through the glovebox?

    If anyone has any possible solutions that would be great.

    Thanks

    Rob

    Sorry, but I am fairly certain the answer will be no.

    Your best option might be a new radio, but I think you can still find the little FM modulators that allow you to tune your radio into the signal from your music player. Not stunning quality, but probably acceptable.

    My golf is older than your A3 but they VAG cars share a lot of components.
    I had an interface that connected to the back of the rcd300 it came with that allowed my iPod to pretend to be a cd changer.
    Have a look on Connects2 website. Their products are ray to find on eBay.
