FYI I have never gotten this to work on mine........

FF - When using a playlist or folder view on a USB stick, unfortunately when you restart the car it goes back to default (all music).

I drove my car for months never remembering/realizing my SS had radio controls on the steering wheel. Still never use it as the radio is within easy reach..... probably just me LOL.

You can play your radio for 10 minutes with out the key in the ignition
After you shut the car off and take key out, you can still roll your windows up
You don't have to hold the key in the start position, just crank the engine and let go of the key, it will keep cranking until started
The automatics are much more fun to drive in "M" or "sport" mode

If you manually push down the lock on the driver's side door, the passenger side will lock, too. The alarm does not go on, though.

I was unimpressed with the gas door when I first got my Camaro, thinking "how on earth do people with no nails get this damn thing open"... then realized that if you press in lightly on the gas door, it pops open (just like my pressure cabinets at work that no one else can open)... DUH

Don't feel bad, I almost broke my nail off trying to open it when I first got it LOL

If you try to open a locked door from inside, the first pull of the handle does nothing, but the second pull opens the door.

Well I guess that explains why I've had to urge to go "commando" since May.

I'm really stuck on that gas door - there's a little hook on the inside of the gas door to hang the cap tether on so the cap doesn't rattle against your paint while you fill the tank.

The V6 A6 has 4th gear hold ... When cruising on the highway in 6th gear, blip the throttle, and the trans will downshift and hold in 4th gear for passing. To cancel the 4th gear hold just ease the throttle like normal.

I discoverd that last night as well. I was looking for a holder in the fuel door itself as first. Duh.

In this configuration, the phone will also continue to charge while it's plugged in; so, you don't have to worry about the batteries dying.
wait... you mean i can listen to pandora radio off my iphone!?!? how!!?? help !
