So the volume knob on the passenger side was a deal breaker for you on the Nav? You get a volume control on the steering wheel ... what about using that one instead?i was dying for nav for one reason
AMI, which enables you go get ipod connectivity

Whoops - yes, that's what I meant. Enlighten me some more on the Side Assist. I've always used my mirrors and turned my head before changing lanes. Granted there may have been a time or two when I didn't change lanes 100% safely, but I have never been in a close situation, like that, that was caused by me. I'd love to see some soccer moms with that feature though!Do you mean Side Assist? If so, I've got to disagree. It seems pointless until you have it...but turns out to be a very cool and useful feature that works supremely well.
That's funny. I decided to add the Technology package to my 2009 order, so it looks like I'll have the Side Assist in my car (part of tech in '09). Does it beep at you?And yeah...soccer moms could really use it. And in that case, an attempt at changing lanes when the alert is active should result in an electric shock through the seat.
I know it sucks to have to pay for something twice, but if you really want them there's nothing stopping you from ordering it at the parts counter.I have yet to receive a production date, but I am first in line at my dealer for my A5. I did just add Drive select to the package. I really wish that I could get the carbon inlays instead of brushed Aluminum.
