A google search shows that a -lot- of vehicles, ranging from Ford
F150's to Hondas to Touregs (Toe-rags? :-) have -a- 10 pin connector.
Whether it is the same 10 pin, I have no idea (probably not, but one
could always hope.) In some cases, like the F150, it seems the truck
is prewired for a brake controller; I seriously doubt an allroad is,
but sometimes wonders never cease.
If you toss up a pic somewhere of the connector, I can try to ID it
and give you an idea of where you might find it. From there,
figuring out which pins are which shouldn't be too tough. Even with
a crimp tool thrown in, it'd probably still be cheaper than whatever
Audi wants for the adapter.
