Bought and received this: http://www.amazon.com/Bluetooth-Audi...bluetooth+otic

Now the inconsistency of my Dice with the new iPhone 5 adapter are gone. Music comes in crisp and clear. And it actually looks like a cleaner set-up without any wires sticking out or anything. The bluetooth connection is tucked away, neatly. Great set-up and only $15.

Finished cleaning the interior last night. Reconditioned the leather and everything else is spotless. Finally both the interior and exterior are clean. Probably not for too long though.

Thanks!
If the wet sanding is done right, it doesn't take long to get it shiny.

Awesome...I'm glad to hear that you didn't go for the blacked out/Limo/VIP look! I've been leaning that way myself.
