      Does anyone lucky enough to have an R (still waiting for mine) know if FLAC files (audio lossless files) can be played from your RNS via SD Card input?

      Thanks,
      T.

      I learned that at 125mph a Stage 1 :R drives and feels as stable as can be, inspiring the same confidence as an 80mph cruise, and best of all it has plenty of power left to give. Rumor has it that the acceleration was only stopped because of not wanting to exceed the 130mph H-speed rating of the stock tires.

      I of course reminded the little birdie that informed me of this info that such speeds are clearly illegal but was assured precautions were taken.

      Yeah I think I'll go summer properly speed rated tires before I er, exceed the stock limiter.

      I learned that if you don't shut your sunroof before you tap the KESSY button to turn off the engine, you are SOL after a second or two. you have to restart the whole car Also I noticed there is no manual sunroof crank. I never needed it in my MKV but my MKIV needed it about every 20 uses to re-align.

      Whoa wait... what? MKIV's had a manual sunroof crank? I had no idea... never had a problem I guess.

      Thing I learned about my MKIV today!

      Welp. Looks like I'll continue to be annoyed having to transcode stuff for the car...the last time I bought a VW I made sure to put in requests for FLAC and gapless playback support when I got my courtesy calls, if enough of us remember to do that maybe we'll actually get those someday

      Alloy door sills are cheap as well. Both sills on the red R at the Chicago Auto show were peeling...

      That's white new car shipping plastic.... Take that off to reveal the aluminum. I don't know how you didn't see that just by looking at it. My door sils are just fine.. They had plastic on them too.
