You do not need to buy the phone from Audi.  It is designed to work
with any Motorola phone.  In the A4 I have a Motorola DPC550 flip
phone with a 3 watt booster kit.  I did it myself, with the hardest
part running the antenna wire.  It works great (although the voice
quality through the built-in microphone leaves something to be desired).
