Definitely the aux out from the android unit. As I stated I found the usb/aux adapter the most accessible option rather than the glove or console box. The adapter that I purchased was on amazon. The...

So I referenced some of the pm's I sent to inquire about no sound from the android side of the unit. I cannot stress again checking the E70 forum as a lot of my guidance came from there. Once I wired...

I referenced many other manufacturers to help in my installation as these all seem to be very similar. Try dvdgpsnav.com solution for no sound. Perhaps that will help. I myself are not familiar with...

I do not think the mobile mechanic was deliberately taking you for a ride, so suing him in small claims court is a bit over the top in my opinion. There are other ways than a pressure test to find...

By seeing oil held within the oil filter housing. When I loosen the oil filter cap oil is filled to the top of the filter housing until it drains out due to unseating those o rings from their place.
