Is there a way to play music from your smartphone in an
Audi A6 from 2008?
I am looking for anything, such as devices or other gadgets, that may make this possible. I have looked all over the web for a solution to this.

I guess if you'd like a cheap, but functional solution you could buy a so called FM-Transmitter.
These are usually fairly cheap: 10$ / 10€, and aren't too bad.
Depending on the brand, you can connect your AUX cable, SD Card and some may even have bluetooth.
Otherwise you could buy a 'converter' (A2DP for Bluetooth) from your Audi dealer ( or usually other certified shops), that you can connect to your CD Changer/Navigation. You can then connect your aux cable to that.
However, the second option is more expensive (I believe around 60€, and depending on model/year/connection port it can get more expensive) and has to be installed. The first option is simply 'plug and play'.
Yes you can play music using your smartphone. You can use a BT adapter. I use WMA3000A I got from viseeousa.com. I plug it directly to my car's AMI port. This both supports iPhone and android. You will be able to stream music via bluetooth and the sound quality is great.
I have tried this Bovee WMA 3000A that comes with AMI cable, the best bluetooth adapter in streaming music to iPod ready cars, it supports Android and iPhone which also have steering wheel controls and automatic call switching. Try this, it can solve your problem.
Audi sound systems like BNS 5 and RNS-E have a line input. This is part of the Quadlock connector on the back of the unit.
You can get Aux in adapters that plug into this connector. The standard ones provide a 3.5 mm jack, others also provide an iPhone connector.
