AMI and Bluetooth modules are two different systems.
Audi Music Interface
A very wide range of portable music devices can integrate with your car via the optional Audi Music Interface. Once installed, they can be controlled with the Multi Media Interface (MMI) or multifunction steering wheel (depending on the carís equipment). Supported devices include USB memory sticks, portable hard discs, mobile phones, and Apple iPods Ė even portable cassette players.
And itís not just the audio signal thatís transmitted. With compatible devices, detailed track information is displayed.

All models are equipped with the MMI, with and without navigation, just different screen resolution, with different system linking other devices CAN bus or MOST-bus
-MMI 6.5-inch TFT color display (1/4 VGA 400 x 240 pixels), with NAV ( with DVD drive for navigation) / without NAV
-MMI High-resolution 7 inch color display (wide VGA 800 x 480 pixels) MMI navigation plus with HD

i would suggest you to plug in an iPod or itouch for your music otherwise it will drain your cell's battery very quickly...
MMI=Multiple media interface...
The Audi Multi Media Interface (MMI) system, is an in-car user interface media system developed by Audi
MMI operates a large number of in car entertainment components, car electronics, and other functions. The list below indicates the scope of systems controllable by MMI. However, depending on the actual car model, along with which version was specified (MMI Basic, MMI High, etc.), only some, and not all functions will be applicable or available.
Satellite navigation, including traffic management (TMC) - optional
TV tuner - optional
Telephone and directory
Heating, ventilation, air conditioning, climate control, and seat heating
Car setup (e.g. central locking and convenience function (coming home/leaving home, power sunroof and windows) options, global audio settings, suspension settings etc.)
Driver information (e.g. fuel economy statistics (often encompassed by "trip computer" functions), battery level, tire-pressure monitoring, etc.)
User manual (full on-board car user manual, displayed on screen)
Conclusion: All Q5 have the MMI, with and without navigation.
The factory Bluetooth audio streaming is possible only in the model with navigation
