Done today. <br>Had the seat heaters adjusted to max heat (still no match for the furnace-like heat that my Denali puts out). <br>Switched to the 1-touch unlocks all doors.<br>Switched to synthetic (I bought Mobil 1 and brought it with me to the dealership) <br>Had the Ipod installed ($300+tax <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> )<p>Talking with the service advisor, I realize I need to get to know the Service Manager. When I asked about mods he didn't seem to know much (never heard of Evolve). This will be a work in progress. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I did tell him I was going to take the bracket off this weekend. He said we can do it, so what the hell. They did. I might get some oversized washers to put up there at a later date. I did find it interesting that the dealership was told it is OK by Volvo to remove the bracket. It did have two minor scraps on, but I was surprised there wasn't even a slight dent. It now resides in my garage. Anyone want one??? I'll sell it REAL cheap! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p>My loaner car was brand new V50 2.4. T Not sure the name of the color, but it was just a little darker than my Sonic Blue. Looked nice. I was disappointed by the gray interior. Some cheap plastic on parts of the door as well. The 2.4 was a little underpowered. Gas pedal and brake too damn close. I hate that. My Saab had the same problem. Once in a while you'll hit the brake instead of the gas. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>What was really cool was the option to program a lot personal settings through the radio (things like auto locking doors, flash to unlock, etc). <p>Kinda funny how my one and only free service ended up costing me $350+ - oil & Ipod installation)<br> <p>***Dammit, Syracuse just lost to the Aggies <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> ***

If so, that's a pretty good price compared to what others on this board have been quoted.

Price of the unit? You don't mean the Ipod, do you? If so, no. I had my own Ipod.
