I still think it's related to the device you are streaming from, you using a reasonably recent Android device or something else?

OK that is odd, it worked with my last phone (Samsung Galaxy  S4) and works with my current phone (HTC on M9). Wonder if you are missing firmware updates (for the car) as device wise we're on the same operating system and have similar capabilities. Perhaps their is a difference between 2009 and 2011 cars and their capabilities but my guess would be a software update.

You can't do it. It's a dealership job.

Gotta say, best time for white is the early evening, especially with my pimp lights  ;D



Really need to change my number plate lights to led..also still debating if it's worth making an insurance claim for storm damage..as you can see it's not immediately obvious.

[Old man grump]In my experience unless you're into multiple thousands of pounds repair is it ever worth claiming on insurance. Even with "protected no claims" they bump up the base insurance and then give you your discount on the bumped price so you end up paying far more than you claimed for next time anyhow unless it's a really big claim. Insurance is the biggest scam on the face of the earth IMHO.[/Old man grump]

I'm work in insurance in my day job so I'm well aware..problem is it may well need a need either a new roof skin or to be sanded back to the metal, filled and painted. Theoretically it could be PDR'd but there are so many that I'd they charged 40 quid a dent you'd be up to 500+ easy.

All for something that is barely visible..

 :o Nvm. I work in Finance, we're not so popular either  :P

 ??? PDR? Aaah - Paintless Dent Repair?

I had a guy quite literally run into the side of my car while I was in a line of nearly stationary nose to tail traffic. I'm serious. F**kwit. No idea what he was on, must have been strong! Left a crotch shaped imprint in my passenger door and broke my wing mirror. I got his details but he refused to take my details and just said sorry. To keep myself right in case it was a no win no fee sort of scam I reported to the police & insurance company. I didn't claim, spent a few hundred to fix it out of my own pocket and never heard from the guy. They still bumped my insurance up by about £2,000 next year, that's 10 times the normal price, ten times what it cost to fix. I argued and got it down to about £400; it's more than 5 years now and never heard a word from the other guy - so essentially it was a £200 phone call. Seriously, for £500 I'd either live with it, if you're happy to, or pay it out of pocket and keep it on the qt. Otherwise they'll just get it back within a year or two with interest.

...neglected to say - I can't see it at all in the photos on this thread... but seem to recall you had another thread with a clearer photo when I first started following a month or two ago. Could see it then, bit of a golf ball effect on the roof?

Yeah there's one on the bonnet several on the roof, only visible from less than a foot away in most circumstances.

I've reported it to insurance but they are waiting on me to pull the trigger or not. Either way my insurance will go up next year unfortunately as even for information only carries a loading.

I think you've answered your own question then, you're screwed already - might as well get something out of it.

Ever get the feeling you're imagining things?



I swear the roof has dents in it...

Anyway the usual gratuitous shine shot..
