      Bought it from someone on classified, they're discontinued so you can't get them through a dealer. There's a few for sale as we speak. Check the MKV, MKVI, MKV R32 sections.

      But on topic, very upset about my sunshade wasn't expecting something like that especially from paul. I can't blame the guy though I guess he didn't know, his still the man though. Just hope everything works out.

      RCD-310. It's standard on any base Golf / GTI / Jetta / Beetle now. Actually isn't bad. Works with the BT and MDI setups.

      Does the job, for now. I probably will upgrade later down the road to a RNS-510. Speaking of the BT, for some reason the option for BT-music under Media has gone away. So I can't play music through my phone. But on my MDI it shows the little MP3. Any suggestions?

      Try unpairing and repairing your phone and see if that helps.

      Thanks. Best part is I'm paying everything my self. Payments, Gas, Mods. LED's are on my list actually! I Wish I bought them during a group buy my friend Nick told me, that was going on at golfmk6.com. The plans I have are end-less but it will take forever with my job right now. Applied for a new job yesterday.
