Yes, this ^^

The active noise cancellation (standard on the S8 iirc) works remarkably well, I was blown away by the silence of the S8 cabin when I drove one....

All Joking aside, can this actually be retrofit? I've looked at the amps and they both look the same ... is this just an installation of mics + reprogramming of the amplifier. . If so I'm definitely going to do it

It wasn't even an option outside of the S8, not something I have looked at in any detail but if you are serious I'd start with the wiring diagrams and go from there. To install properly will be a big job I guess, think about dropping the headlining etc..

Good luck

Amazing really that the loudest engine of them the 4.2tdi was not the one that came with ANC .. the S8 engine is so refined it may as well be a W12 . It's ultra quiet
Thanks Paul. .
