pairing iphone and audi a3

Neither the Audi dealer nor the local Apple store had any idea how to do it, and after reading a lot of different opinions around the web, I was worried that getting an iPhone properly paired with our new Audi A3 was going to be a hassle.

It wasn't.
  1. Turn on Bluetooth.
  2. Start car.
  3. Wait for iPhone to find Audi, press button to pair.
  4. Type in 1234 (yay for obvious defaults!)
  5. Wait about 30 seconds for Audi to slurp up address book and voila!
Nobody seems to make a cradle for the iPhone thats compatible with Audi's charging spot, so I purchased a car charger for the iPhone.  No, it's not aesthetically pleasing, but it appears to work fine.

Do you have MMI on your a3? I am planning to get an a3 but I don't want the MMI interface.
