*If you're wondering what that is, it's a non-functioning multi-function steering wheel!
Nigel (NHN) visited today, fitted my new wheel, installed the speech dialogue system, and coded everything. He also tidied up some of my own rather lamentable cabling, recoded my central locking to one-press and stuffed a sock in the gob of the seat-belt warning chime. Oh, and he updated the mapping in my RNS-E to 2013.
The only tiny fly in the ointment is that the existing slip ring wasn't compatible with the new wheel, and the local Audi dealer didn't have one in stock. So a new one will have to be ordered and Nigel will return to install it in a few days. Until then, my wheel controls and speech dialogue system don't work - hence the title and intro.
I have to say, what a guy! So many people had told me beforehand what a top bloke Nigel is, and they were absolutely right. I would just say that whilst he voracious appetite for tea is common knowledege on the forum, what is perhaps not so well known is his liking for toast and marmalade.
Until then, please see below a picture (rather a poor one from the phone) of my beautiful looking multi-function steering wheel
Oh yes, and my UK-legal pressed plates arrived this morning.
