    Hi,

    Quick question, I notice that there is a compass on the rear view mirror. However mine does not seem to enable when holding the mirrors button in (as per owners manual)

    Is this an optional extra or something?

    Yes.

    Also while on the subject of these extras that never appear on extras lists: has anyone got a radio controlled dash clock???

    It's a paid extra which is why you wont be able to turn it on!! You can get on e from the parts dept.

    Unfortunatley they are only radio controlled in Germany, they revert to quartz mode when they don't receive the clock signal.

    No it's an option but I have never seen it on an options list. Don't forget I work in Germany.

    It's not on the options list in the UK. Although I do remember reading a thread about someone driving back from Germany and he noticed the sync icon had switched it's self off. Perhaps it was an 8L S3....

    No you may be right that it only works in Germany but is only fitted to German cars.

    My cousin had a watch years ago that was radio controlled from an atomic clock and the signal came from Germany.

    Strange really. Can't we afford our own?

    We do have our own, England invented it! The transmitter is based in Rugby.

    The transmitter is in Anthorn up in Cumbria. It was moved from Rugby a while ago. My Casio watch uses it.
