My PSW:
1. LED's pretty dim in sunny daytime. (common complain)
2. when I park my car outside for a while in very hot day, it doesn't work till PSW cools down. (common issue)
3. bottom line left side icons are keep flashing after 5-10 mins of driving. (I don't know this one is actually only my issue or some)

Im not sure... I have only had it for 4 days so far and I live in London so not much hot weather here. I will let you know if I get any problems.
I know that mine isnt dim... I havent even got it on fulll brightness.

Shhhhhh! You're not supposed to tell anyone, Borat!

Niqui, I agree we have to meet. It's been a few years since I've been back to Montreal. Is Buona Notte still in business? I always go there when I'm in Montreal. It's a hot place.

I don't mind the Alcantara on the display and wheel bottom since I don't grab those places normally, but the sides can certainly be reupholstered with perforated leather for daily use to improve longevity

are there places that one could outsource a replacement of the sides with leather that would be high quality and not break the bank?

Am I the only one that thinks the new one is not that cool? I think the old one looked way more low key. The new plastic piece seems like too much to have on a steering wheel, while the old design was more integrated. Plus it doesn't even light up amber anymore, so it will stand out like crazy at night...The only thing I do like is the flat bottom...

Seems like everyone is raving about it because it's OEM and NEW!!!
