New Opels (on which I seem to spend more time tinkering than I'd like) have
this feature as well, and it only works with Opel head units- you've
guessed, way too expensive for their quality. They're modified Philips
units though, so just for fun we tried connecting a standard Philips'
display connector to the in-dash display. Didn't work- garbage was all we
got (although even the wiring's colour coding matched).

I guess Audi does the same...
