OK, it's here :aargh4:

Haven't had time to take it for a spin yet, too much to do at work! Had a quick play however, and a couple of initial questions/comments:

1. How do I get the parking brake to auto-release when I drive off (car is a manual)? At the moment, the brake stays on and I get a message in the DIS telling me to release it (manually)

2. I have the B&O system, and like someone else on here, I forget who, there seems to be a chunk of DSP options missing due to the fact the sat-nav is not installed. If so, bit of a con.

3. Phone prep is the shizzle. Where can I see a list of available adaptors? I might be tempted.

Sports seats are very nice, well impressed overall. Will give more opinions tonight after my 130 mile drive home.

I can only answer number 1 for you.

Just drive off. :D As long as seatbelt is on, door shut, all is fine. You don't even have to be in gear. Dip the clutch, give it a few revs, and lift the clutch slowly.

Thats how it works on mine, enjoy

On the parking brake, I've had that same message once. I think it was caused by me trying to move off to quickly. Nice and easy does it!

Wishing now I got the phone prep. I misread the brochure and thought you could only get it with the Sat Nav option, but now realise that was the phone prep high. Doh!!

Put your seatbelt on!!! The number of times I've tried to drive off whilst putting the belt on and not gone anywhere!!! Rather annoying actually I wish I could switch that feature off!

I have B&O and Nav and I have a "DSP Bang & Olufson" thing in the menu which seem to set up the surround sound. Doesn't mention it being different with nav which is naughty!!! Although ita also doesn't mention that with nav you loose the SD card slot which is annoying.......

Enjoy your drive.....

Thanks Guys, seatbelt off is the most likely culprit - I was only trying some car park maneuvering!


By the way, after the parking sensors debacle, it seems I have been given Parking System Plus free of charge :D :beerchug: - front and rear sensors and a nice graphic on the MMI.

Mine says DSP Premium. I believe yours can allocate different sweet spot zones etc?? Mine is just on or off.
