Hello my friend! Don't be overwhelmed. It is really not as complicated as it may seem. Set your M-Drive settings. Set your EQ for your listening enjoyment. Start up your car. Push the M button on steering wheel. Insert your favorite CD or select your favorite iPod Song. Turn up the volume quite loud although not quite loud enough to bury the exhaust note completely. Drive away! As simple as that. All the rest is just the RTFM stuff. Enjoy your new beast!
