I agree, but it could be annoying to get your new car and then have to wait for one to be delivered to be able to play your music !

Thanks very much for detailed replies. It looks like I need a couple of B-C leads. My pedal appears to fit 176 and 177 models so I’ll take it out before it goes. Is music stored on a USB C key or memory card? If C key what sort of size are you people using? Finally anybody purchased the armrest organising tray?
Many thanks.

+1 for the Anker recommendation. I've got loads of Anker cables, and various others bits, and they are all top notch quality + their after sales service is superb too.

With regards to music, there was a recent thread where people where having trouble getting USB drives >16GB to be recognized by MBUX for music. Seemed larger drives were recognized for manual maps updates as an example, just not for music. Could be a formatting issue (FAT32 vs. NTFS), but I don't recall a definitive answer being given.

Personally I just use Spotify these days so don't bother with stored music anymore.

Ordered the leads and memory stick as recommended. Also purchased one of these, got one in current A45 and find it a lot better than standard setup.
