      So went to my dealer to check out the cost of adding a bluetooth kit to my car. They looked up my 2009 tiguan and found the following part number:

      1k0051437A - Bluetooth Handfree Facility Universal, (Profile: HPF, A2DP), MFL support.

      This is a new one that I hadn't seen brought up in other threads. It's also listed much cheaper than the other kit I checked out (1Z0035729D).

      Anyone know anything about this kit. For $341 it sounds like a pretty good deal compared to the older kits and the Fiscon.

      Don't know but I'm looking to get the kit installed next week when I'm in for 15000km service. I'll find out what part number they use. I beleive I suggested the 1k0051473A.

      I called the dealership last week. They are staying firm at $600 for the kit and install. When I bought mine, the salesman told me to hold off because a cheaper one was coming. That must be what he was talking about. It drives me nuts that it didn't come installed.

      Isn't that still the Volk-L setup? From what I understand, it is bare bones as it gets. If it is, you can only accept incoming phones call w/ the steering wheel buttons. To make outgoing calls, you still have to pick up your cell phone and dial it manually.

      What kit is included in the 2010? Or is the NAV Headunit upgraded to include it? I can make my calls via voice command, through the nav unit, or from the phone.

      Just trying to help out with the 09 guys if there is some different parts in my truck I can track down.

      Do you think installing these types of kits will be doable for a novice?

      Hi I know its very old post but I was wondering did you ever get the 1K0051437A kit ? I was looking at it and you can buy one for just about $70 and I was wondering is that the same kit as the 1K0051437 ? no one including the dealership can give me any info about what is included and what is the $200 difference between the 1K0051437A and the 1K0051437. one parts guy said that the 1K0051437A is made for EOS but I dont see why would not work on other VWs since they have same radios.

      I ended up getting the 1K0051437A and installed it myself. Works great, still going strong after 3 years. It doesn't have some of the cool features like showing the number on the display, but it pairs and answers calls like a champ and I have no problem streaming music via bluetooth.

      As to what the difference between the 1K0051437 and the 1K0051437A, no idea. Likely just an earlier model? Seems to have the same features, but it might not have the right coding to work with the Tiguan's can-bus?

      Tnx its actually going to go in 2006 jetta and the reason is so cheap is because they have a new one 1K0051473 and the one you have has been discontinued I guess that's why they sell it for $50 idk no one can tell me the differences and comparability so Idk if I should risk it. I don't mind not having phone # on the dash plus I read somewhere you can actually change the firmware of the module and get more out of it but I cant remember where or how.

      Buy a 9w7 Bluetooth module and a wiring harness for about $300 total. You can use the rest of the money to buy an RCD-510 and have the newer radio and newer Bluetooth module. You'll have audio streaming and calling options this way.
