Michelin Pilot Super Sports on my sedan and Pilot Sport PS2s on my coupe. One of the best mods we have done to our cars. Much quieter, smoother, and better grip in the corners.

For BMWs, gloss black is chrome. Change out your grilles to gloss black and either purchase shadow line trim or get your window trim wrapped in gloss black vinyl. Makes a huge difference.

Well, that was it for me... I shut off Handoff and FaceTime for Cellular Calls while I had the car paired to the phone. Then I reinitialized both those settings. Voila! Everything is working now.

I am still having trouble with my 5s on 8.0.2. Haven't checked my wife's 6 on either of our cars nor have I tried my 5s on her car with iDrive.

There's always 8.0.3, eh?

I believe the LUX V4 are user programmable for color. Blues and reds are definitely out for street use.

iOS 8, Professional Radio, and Bluetooth Calling

Judging by the responses and the linked article this appears to be an OS issue and not a specific phone or car issue.

Let's hope 8.0.2 fixes it.

On second thought. It may be irreparably marred. It's time to send ship that exhaust to me and start anew.

I mean, it'll never be up to your standard of cleanliness again.
