    I can speak highly enough of the Active Headlights standard in the luxury.

    Hi
    I had the rear park sensors fitted when buying my MPS luxury. Worth every $.
    Recently had the front sensors fitted expecting they would be very useful knowing where the nose of the car is when parking but thats not the way they work. They really only sense the waht is diagonally beside youre car. so good when reversing in as the nose passes the car in front or likewaise when pulling out of a spot. To me a total waste of money. Never realy get that close. They go off more often when people walk too close crossing the road at lights.
    If you like your ipod music while you drive and want to search tracks albums etc then I would definitely go with the adapter. It even displays song title album and artitst on the sat nav screen.
    If you decide to go bluetooth adapter then don't buy it. let me know and you can have mine. Its bouncing around in the glove box. I found connectivity unreliable and functionality/control through the car sound system non exisitant apart from skip forward and back a track and sound.

    Thanks for the feedback wal! I will definitely get the rear parking sensors and leave out the front. I'm going to miss the reverse camera I had on Rex...wish Mazda had an option. I guess the only option is to get an after market HU.
    So far I've got the following on my list:
    -Cargo Tray
    -Rear Parking sensors
    - Floor Mats (The dealer said he would throw these in for free)

    - Tinting (After Market)

    I am sort of considering the iPod apadtor too!

    Floor mats also work well for messy spouses

    Make sure the dealer throws in the proper MPS floor mats (they have MPS badges on the two in the front). They may try to stiff you by throwing the standard 3 ones in

    Very interesting ride you have there mate! As far as the iPod adaptor goes - does this sit in the centre console or the glove compartment? Is searching for tracks and playlists easy enough or a pain in the butt?

    If you want to pair your mobile phone with the bluetooth (which you do) then get the iPod cable fitted.

    You can only have one bluetooth device paired at a time and 100% of the time, you want it to be your mobile phone. Having to juggle that with an iPod just doesn't work. I have the iPod bluetooth adapter but have never used it.

    My phone is my iPod as well so bluetooth takes care of everything for me, and if I ever have a passenger who is whingeing about my music then I just let them plug theirs into the Aux jack in the centre console. It all depends on whether you use an iPod or not because the iPod cable does NOT work with iPhones.

    People who whinge about my music generally get dropped off at the side of the road and get told to take a cab

    No exceptions

    Lives in the glove box. Searching isn't that hard, but can be tedious as you need to scroll with the wheel. Best way is to have playlists.

    Its still a good thing to have. As Reedy mentioned, it's then possible to have 2 music sources in the car. Beware though, once the IPod adapter is plugged into the IPod, you can no longer use the Ipod interface. You need to use the car stereo interface.

    In our car, my wife uses the IPod when she has the car, and I use the iPhone.

    Thanks Reedy and Yeldarb. Yea I would like to have my mobile phone connected via Bluetooth 100% of the time. That should work for me then as I have an iPod Classic.
    I'll add the iPod adaptor to my list of options then

    Can't wait to get the car and bring along on a cruise!!

    the wheel is to search through the songs in the selected folder....so if you want to chagne artists...you need to press track next.... I HATED IT!
    OMG pressing the right pedal makes me go forward!...but pressing the middle doesn't.. hows does that work?... aliens...

    My dealer told me there was only going to be one specification level in the series 2 gen II..... Silverathlon can you confirm this? No one ever gets told the same things as the next person...!

    Bring on the white!

    My Ipod adapter lives in the glove box of my MPS Gen II but there is heaps of cable and I am sure if you want the ipod to be located somewhere else it would be possible. You would need to talk to the dealer when installing.
    I find the glove box good in that the Iopod is away from prying eyes.
    Im getting one of those after market holders to install in the glove box to make the plug in less teadious.

    The adapter works as follows with my Ipod Classic:
    Disc button on the centre dash selects the field that you want to search in eg playlist, album song artist etc.
    Once the filed is selected the folder button on the centre dash can be used to scroll through whats in the field alphabetically.
    The results are displayed on the sat Nav Screen when its in info mode. Display is instantaneous with the scrolling so its really easy to flick through to find what you are after.
    I have all of my music on the Ipod as individual albums as well as in play lists.
    The up and down buttoin on the steering wheel allows you to restart the song currently playing and skip forward to the next song. Does not skip back.
    Not quite as smart as some of the other models eg ford or hyundai but still light years ahead of the blue tooth adapter or aux jack. Both have zero search functions unless you go to the ipod itself and no display. WhenI tried the blue tooth adapter it was seriously unreliable.
    Go with the adapter.

    Totally agree that paint protection isa wate of money.
    I avoided the dealer offer because it sounded dodgy and went for an after market protection with a 5 year guarantee for $700. Lasted almost a year, big deal.
    I think they work on the basis that when it fails the owner is so peed of that they ont go back and have it redone becasue its a waste of time.
    Go for the Prima do it yourself kitfrom ZAS. You'll find it on the forum.
    I replaced my aftermarket protection with the Prima and heaps of help from the forum.
    Couldn't be happier.

    Thanks heaps Wal! The adaptor will definitely be on my list now along with the reverse parking sensors and cargo tray.
    Hopefully I can strike a good deal with the salesman!

    Went and saw the dealer today and he said there will still be two models to choose from - the standard and the luxury. (This is for the new 300G models)
    He told me the color I was getting was called Crystal White Pearl Mica. I believe its the same color they have on their other models.
