The phone interface cable, which emanates in the trunk to a DB25 connector,
is hidden behind the left side interior panel.  I assume you have
the Audi factory phone, and I would guess that this dealer-mounted phone
module would be installed nearby, and plugged into that connector.

Here are some Audiworld tech articles about integrating aftermarket
