Hi, does anybody who owns the r design have both the USB & aux ports? I have the Lux and it only has the USB port. I thought all models have both. A little gutted as I had my plans for my gadgets.

Just out of interest, what did you plan to use the aux-in for?
You can get a 64gb flash drive from ebuyer for 25 quid. I think this is the best use for the usb port, SSD drives are too big and a touch more pricey per gb, and HDDs are mechanicaly vulnerable. Also if your mobile has a bluetooth transceiver you can stream music to the car stereo wirelessly - or so i read in the user manual, i haven't taken receipt of my V40 yet, few weeks left!
How are you getting on with the car? Mpg?

At present I am using my iPod touch through the USB. I wanted to use my shuffle via the aux simply because of the size. I am sure that the D4 I test drove had the two. With regards to the mpg; I will of had the car a week tomorrow so not had too much time to gauge properly. I do quite a few motorway miles and the display is reading on average 52 mpg. I know this is never too accurate, but it is all I can go on and if it is anywhere close too this, then I will be happy.

52 will suit me too! my current car gets 25MPG.

if your concerned about the size of the MP3, i would recommend a USB flash drive - you can get some really tiny devices barely bigger than the USB Type A plug. I use the AUX-in when driving my girlfriends C30, and the audio cable takes up room in the arm rest compartment.

The USB decoder is bullshit because it doesn't support ogg open format, a shame for such a high class car. That why I'm looking for aux input.
