Did it give you much extra at the front?

Very quick question.

Am I able to play music from my iphone using the bluetooth set up on a 2012 LSM Dmax?

If not, is anyone running an 'Iphone to mini usb' cable to run music from their phone to the car stereo? Will this allow you to change songs whilst driving?

I have an aux cable and that works to transport the music but obviously it will not let me change songs using the head unit, only using the phone?

Cheers

buy the mini usb male to usb female from ebay for $2. yes, you can change track, fast fwd, rew from the steering wheel.

bluetooth audio streaming doesnt work, but usually sounds like crap anyway (at least it does in my ford). cables ftw.

Thank you for this. I had attempted this but with a $8 one from Jaycar as im impatient. It would not work with my 3m iphone cable however it does work with a 1m cable. (which is more convenient, the 3m was just what I had laying around at the time)

Pretty happy. Cheers

Ive decided on a Dobinsons bullbar over the Mcc because no one effing stocks anything in Sydney so want an extra $200 freight.

The ARB bullbar is due out very soon looks quite good might be worth the wait.
I am not sure on the price though.

i saw a pic, and didn't think much of the bumper cut (at least not the job on the red 4x4 show display vehicle).

also, i'm not sure ARB is really worth the extra clams (not sure on price either, but i'll guess $2k)

Yeah it is hard to know at this stage what is and isn't as the pictures they are displaying of the bars is not exactly what you will end up with.
All manufacturers are only now starting to release pictures of the bars fitted to the vehicle where as before the bar they were displaying were not quite the same as what you got for the vehicle.
I don't mind the ARB bar but it is not my first choice.
At this stage I am leaning towards an X-rox bar or I may even make my own yet I have not decided.
It will have a lot to do with how they have to be mounted to the chassis.

^^^ i like that bar.

the XROX looks to have absolutely ZERO air flow to the intercooler. something to thing about. I also don't like how it leaves so much in plain view underneath the bar, you would have to make up some shielding plates.
