Subject: Re: Audio functions disconnected from steering wheel

Nick, mmmh, not really what I was hoping to hear..: next friday I will get my brand new 9-3 Aero Sport Sedan and my cell phone will be moved from my by then previous 9-3 to the new one.... :-( Hope I won't be transferring a bad actor..... I really think it has someting to do with the cell phone, because I haven't used the phone a couple of days - actually more or less since the problem last occurred - but this afternoon I just had to make a couple of calls and miraculously everything suddenly started to work properly again.... So I think I will not use the phone again untill I have delivered the car to the dealer again to avoid any problems. Thanks anyway for your reply and - just curious - are you happy with the new one?
