      Does not support cars with Monsoon and OnStar.

      So, of no use to mk4 R32's?

      I was confused by this though. Our cars have Monsoon, no? Maybe I'm misunderstanding.

      no it works on cars with Monsoon, it does not work on cars that are Monsoon + Onstar which are very very far and few between. It will work mint on a mk4 .:R, we will be installing Patryk's into his mk4 .:R next week. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Great "stock" look and a much better alternative for those with the crappy old stock deck. Bluetooth too, very cool.

      There most certainly should be...that's what the little button on the top left looks like its for... the button with the music symbol. I've never seen ANY Volkswagen factory radio that didn't have an equalizer. I can't wait for this radio to come in tomorrow... to check it out. I might have to wait an extra day for the adapter tho...unless Jeff can come thru for me [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Question...I know there is USB and AUX in support but wonder about ipod integration via aftermarket/OEM ipod adapters that are our there?
      Edit: Whats sound quality like compared to the current R32 double radio? (I still havent coded my radio for the Jetta Wagon setting so I'm curious)

      you can use the oem ipod adapter no problem so i would assume that an aftermarket one would be no issue also.

      its cool with me if you want to buy it from 1st vw, when you get no customer support you will be kicking yourself in the ass you didn't pay the same price to somewhere that actually offers online, in house and phone support [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Thank you for the post!
      This sort of OEM look is exactly what I've been looking for...
      -Does anyone know if this radio is currently offered as the OEM radio in any North American VWs? (If so, which models/years)
      Looking forward to the install guide/review

      it does not come standard in any of the cars in the 50 states, not sure about Canada though. We just installed the radio into Patryks .:R with the adapter harness and it only took 15 minutes. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      yes it has all the same equalizer options as a stock vw head unit but they don't have knobs anymore it is electronic by using the button on the top left corner with a music note on it.

      i was thinking it would sound just like the stock mk4 .:R radio however it was a nice surprise to know it sounds much better.

      Just wondering: if the trunk-mounted CD changer isn't supported by this H/U, why does it have buttons labeled 1 - 6?
