    Looks great mate, what are those plastic wings at the back? for the DSG?

    Do they all have them on , or just the DSG version?

    Thanks

    I'm afraid the temptation would be too great for me! Doesn't matter how old you are, some things just have to be done! :)

    That looks very nice Nathan - might be something else for me to retrofit if I keep the car. Plus I'd have to do the Bluetooth retrofit as well for my RNS-E and add the SDS capability as well - arrgghhh, must stop spending money :crying:

    Cheers Jon. What is the SDS as well? I get confused. S8craig is gonna do my bluetooth retrofit £399. He's also doing TV in motion and media adapter. I'm putting a slim-line PS2 in my car so I can watch DVDs whilst on long motorway cruises!

    drnutta - Its easy, you just pull and it comes off! Gotta replace it as its scratched now :bye:

    It basically allows you to control your RNS-E with your voice - most cool :icon_thumright:

    Not that much - especially if you've got the Bluetooth kit installed - I'm sure S8Craig could do it for you mate - well worth it - GeoffT has a nice thread on here on his experiences of installing it.

    The SDS mod is only a software update.

    Well actually you have to make a small change to the microphone wiring but thats very easy too.

    If you are getting Craig to do the rest then I wouldn't have thought it would cost much more (might even be the same cost) to do the SDS at the same time.

    Have a search on www.navplus.us and you will find the instructions and downloads necessary for this simple update.

    Hope that helps

    lol - I'll take a photo of one of the rims today boys, you are an eager lot aren't you!! Thanks Marms and Jon for the advice on the SDS mod. I'm already a user on navplus, I'll have a look around on there as well! You're a good bunch on this forum, I've learned one hell of alot since I joined in the summer. I'm very grateful :hi:
