No but the OP appears to want to. Personally my goal is for all mods to be stealth upgrades -- the car should look stock but behind the scenes be stellar (power and handling mods, upgraded...

Most people say that for the price of the hk system, you can do better with an aftermarket stealth (ie looks oem) system.

No it doesn't appear so. My emails have gone unanswered. Hoping i didn't creat a problem for myself down the road by sending my VIN to a randomly posted internet email address on a forum!

I got a pm on the 7th, and resent the email. I guess that was Wednesday, so a couple days may make sense to wait. Hoping to see some numbers Monday, or maybe they are just harvesting VINs? Not sure...

Looks like it does. But since the stock US system these days is the "mid level" so called "hifi" system, that means the basic system is not too bad -- and is actually much easier to modify that the...

Can you still do everything with the Harmon Kardon stereo without the idrive interface?

I think you are right. Although I can't quantify how much more likely a detachable nav unit is to be stolen, it clearly is easier to remove than one that is built in -- and since it sounds like you...

Most interesting. Have these items been corrected in later years? Are they still using the bridgestone on 2012 models? Are the Continental's run flat tires?

Why do you wish you got the navigation system? It seems overpriced for what it is. For $500 you can get an aftermarket nav system that is better than the $2k option.

Good to know! When did that change. It's not like that for 2011 and 2012, right?

I like your USB stick solution.

Do you have bluetooth in the car? That's likely an easier way. Blackberry will pair fine, and send audio output to a bluetooth device.
