Default Some pictures of my tinted, hardwired V1 and orange peeled S5. Phantom Black

I looked really hard and what do you know... some orange peels on my paint. It may have been clementine peels, but I could see it easily. Audi surely needs to improve their car painting techniques. As seen in the first picture. The tint was supposed to be 40% but reads at 32%.














The pictures aren't very good quality, i took them from my phone, and then posted them to the picture poster which made them smaller.

Default Looks great (looks familiar... heh). How did the dash reassembly go?

Default Try Simonize De-Citrus on that orange peel, and a Hefty bag.

Default Great pics for a cell phone. Tint looks very nice on black. I haven't decided

if I will tint the windows yet because I'd like to be able to see the interior from outside. I might try to hold off as long as possible or at least until the hot temperatures return.

Default Re: Looks great (looks familiar... heh). How did the dash reassembly go?

i had someone install it for me.. i don't trust myself with german car wiring systems. as easy as it may be, i didn't want to go near the airbags... little plastic snaps i might break, or optic wires.

It went terribly though - the guy cut his hand and put a nick in my gauge surround - they're supposed to replace it for me when/if the part comes in. i haven't paid them, but they didn't want me to until it was settled. It took less than an hour so i'm wondering if the dash will cost more than the work.. probably about 50 bucks.

Default I wasn't thinking that *you* did the dash. I like to DIY but I'd never want to do a dash R&R.

I bet it went terribly, and that sucks that they have to do it again because of the nick.

Default Do you have another carrier? Im sure its normal for your setup.

im using the iPhone and it seems to do everything the the phone function does except my favorite list of contacts. Also, i can use the phone to find a contact and call and it switches to the car... Or back to the phone if i shut the car off without disconnecting. It really is very useful, its much safer than using a phone regularly or even with headset. I walk up to and get in the car and my keys and phone stay in the pocket no matter what... I can't think of a lazier method of living. This car begs to be driven, letting you concentrate on only that activity. It takes care of the rest. Digital cruise control is pretty sweet too.

Soon enough it will pick up a wife for me.... I swear

Default Agreed, the Bluetooth phone interface is so, so slick. Does it work to have the iPhone...

... plugged into AMI while being tethered to the Bluetooth connection?

Default Tint looks dark, but at least you now have an inspection sticker. The V1...

...too bad the installer did tno find a way to hide the wires and mount that remote display a bit more level, but nice that it got done!

Tried several different Nokia phones. I have a legacy AT&T (Cingular) SIM. Hmm...
