Just got back from the Parramatta launch (well, had dinner and dropped a friend off too)

Took a USB stick with a couple of albums in it (no formatting, just in <artistname> folder/<albumname> folder.

It plugs in fine on a non Satnav car with HiFi, but I couldn't navigate. It plays though.

It also plugs in fine on a Satnav car but it wouldn't recognise the USB device. Same deal with the iPod touch without the audio cable.

I didn't have much time in the cars, so I didn't fiddle too much. No keys either.

Non of them had business nav, only pro...

Otherwise, the food was good and there wasn't a single white car there, although the coral red did look OK in the relatively low lighting. The lighting wasn't good on the Sedona Red though. Actually, there was not a single 135 coupe or vert with the options I wanted

Yeah. I was a bit late, but I didn't hear anyone talking about how it sounded. They had a DJ playing tunes though.

It was OK in my opinion, but then it's just a launch of a car. It wasn't even their flagship. I mean the food was good, it was nice to be able to sit in the car and play around. Lots of brochures, drinks, food, people, but no more information that what I already knew.

Crap, wish I saw this before I went. Could have caught up and chatted about your car :biggrin: There were lots of people, but I think most just came and went...

Same kinda thing as Canterbury... Not enough food I thought, but still nice. The girl from Biggest Loser, Fiona I think her name was attended - the very average B grade celeb, but not a bad looker in the flesh.

Trivett launch wasn't all that great either. Food was okay but they had this shitty "lucky" something beer. Went to the Porsche cayman launch around two years ago at park hyatt sydney. It had great food and plenty of decent drinks. They even had fireworks when the cars rolled out......
