Definitely recommend CarPlay. Much better than the car’s standard, I don’t like Volvo’s satnav views. Phone support is better, and the car doesn’t really support text messages properly with an iPhone. Doesn’t support WhatsApp at all.

It is more expensive as a dealer option as they have to change some of the hardware, it’s not just a software update.

Is the music quality better when playing through apple CarPlay? A friend of mine has it on his VW T Roc and it definitely sound clearer through Apple CarPlay

Depends what you're comparing against. Compared to Bluetooth, then yes, definitely. I don't know about a USB iPod style connection, I would expect it to sound the same.
