Hi, Not too sure if my comments will help the mic problem but here goes. I have just removed a THB carkit for a siemens S35i from my 2000 9-5 estate and replaced it with a CARK-91 for a Nokia 6210. The installer who did the original install said that the built in mic was 'CRAP' and fitted the THB one. So I had a black mic sticking out on the right side of the main cabin light (I never liked that really) .The mic in the centre console (actually setup for LHD) has got two connections on it 1 for Nokia Mic's and the other for Motorola. You might try the other connection to what you have which may improve the sound quality for you as well as the person on the other end.
