How's the bluetooth with your Phone ?
Bluetooth works great! I placed the mic just to the outside of the sun visor close to my head so I sound clear to whom ever I'm calling. Calls are clear and so far no lost connectivity.

The thing I was not happy with was a lack of install instructions! That and maybe having to pay extra for the fakra cable

I'm enjoying very much, much better upgrade then the 10 year old unit it replaced...

Rolling over a new set of numbers on the dash....60,000. Been looking at the 50's for the past three years. I know not driven enough, but that is why I purchased this one as a "special driver" not a daily driver. I have one of those already.

Gave her a detailing and clayed the horizontal panels prepping for a complete wax this week if the temps will drop below 95 for a day. When the humidity is at 96%+ it is hard for wax to set up correctly. Right now she is sitting quietly under a cover waiting.....

New member here. I inherited my father's '06 3.0i which he bought new and basically kept in the Garage. I just hit 39k miles.

When I first got it steering was crazy stiff, used a tip on this forum to spray liquid wrench on the steering joint and now it's much better - almost manageable

Only tell tale signs it was even used were some chips on the driver's door wood trim which I replaced with a new part from ECS tuning as apparently all the used driver door pieces are cracked.

There were a few scuffs on both the front door pulls. I removed the rubber coating on them to show the shiny plastic underneath, but I'm still deciding if I like it or want to replace with new oem.

He used seat covers which I took off so even the seats look new, but without seat ventilation in the hot south I'm thinking of getting some new covers.

Came with factory Bluetooth for phone, added GROM bluetooth for music streaming and keeping the factory bluetooth for calls because it works great.

Everything else is original.

Oil changed last week Thursday @ 108k
Over the weekend + ~650miles
* door county: sturgeon bay, egg harbor and gills rock.

I am one of those who rather drive the X versus rental
Unless I'm flying to west coast or east coast
