  1. djben - thanks for jumping in, I looked up your other post on 6speed, interesting! I had mine installed at an auto shop so I'm going to take it there and try the following: 1) Run the unit from the side fuse box 2) Run the unit from the PCM power supply with a power supply filter attached (I'm told its a $25 part approx) 3) Run the unit from the side fuse box with a filter I'm also down to try turning off the CD changer. At the moment I get the error message (CD changer not found) every time I start the car which is annoying so I'd definitely like to get rid of it. However, the auto
  2. No, same interference with the car on and off, I tested it yesterday evening and this morning.
  3. wvicary & xsrfs - I've tried with my iPhone and unfortunately the noise persists, and I think (but can't fully remember) that the auto shop guy tried with his iPod and it still happened. mudman2 - The power supply seems like a good call, I'll speak to the shop about that one. What should I be looking for to see if there's a problem, or how would I check it? I'm a little annoyed that neither the auto shop nor mobridge bothered to check this out! hahnmgh63 - that would be great, thanks. I'll send you a PM.
  4. Thanks guys, this has been a great thread. I bought both the NBP and CB (2 of each) from Svetila.com for a total of EUR 32 including US delivery. Now I'm stocked and can test the bulbs out on the car to see what I like best. Cheers! Paul
  5. Thanks guys, that's a big help. I think I'll take your recommendation and go for the Euro version, probably the NBP but maybe the CB (as its only a cornering light I'm not too concerned about loss of light / diffraction, most cars don't even have this light at all). Powerbulbs.com looks like a good website, thanks for the tip. Does anyone have experience with SVETILA.com? Despite being in Slovenia it does seem to be a legit website, and they have both the NBP and CB whereas Powerbulbs only has the NBP. Svetila is also a bit cheaper even with US delivery. I couldn't find any stores here in
  6. Ok but whats the difference between the bulbs? Are the price increases from $2 to $10 to $25 actually indicative of product improvements or are they just different retailers charging different amounts for the same thing? I don't mind paying a bit more if its really a better bulb...
  7. I have the cornering light problem on my 2005 Cayenne S, I'm going to change the bulb myself. Couple of questions... The manual lists an H3 bulb, is there any difference between the H3's available online? For example, Osram has two, the nightbreaker plus family or the truckstar family, weblinks are: http://www.osram.com/osram_com/Consumer/Automotive_Lighting/Products/Headlights/NIGHT_BREAKER_PLUS/NIGHT_BREAKER_PLUS_family/index.html http://www.osram.com/osram_com/Professionals/Automotive_Lighting/Products/TRUCKSTAR/The_TRUCKSTAR_family/index.html Also, there is a big difference between
  8. I have a 2005 Cayenne S with a PCM 2.1. I recently had a mobridge iPod and Bluetooth unit installed into the car and I'm having an issue with some kind of system noise when listening to the iPod. The audio shop that did the installation and mobridge themselves haven't been able to fix it, so I'm wondering whether someone else knows of this and can help. Here's the full details on the problem: - Hiss with a regular ticking noise at approx 1 second intervals. - The hissing is amplified more in between tracks, in very quiet parts of tracks or all the time when playing audio books (basically w
