Greetings from Buckinghamshire,

Just taken delivery of a fantastic KX-3 and hoping for some help or advice on the following :

Front
parking sensors: Mine only has two visible sensors but am I correct in
thinking there is actually 4 with the outer ones hidden from view? Also,
apart from the beeping should an alert show up in anyway on the dash or
centre console ?

Next question: car is very quiet on the
motorway but have noticed wind noise coming from the sunroof once the
car hits 80. All looks well with the seal etc but has anyone else
noticed this?

Removable tow bar: any recommendations that won't spoil the bodywork/bumper?

Iphone
4: how do you stream music via bluetooth? phone itself works fine and
from glancing at the book it looks like you can bluetooth music but so
far it only works with the cable.

Satnav live traffic: You have to pay for up to date info?

Service
packs : worth having? I expect to do a lot of motorway mileage, maybe
25k miles per year so anyway to fix costs or save on servicing bills
would be very welcome.

Apologies if answers already on the forum or in the handbooks but started a new job on Monday (same
day I got the car) and so far disappearing up my own backside with work!!

Thanks
Stuart

I haven't had the sunroof wind noise due to road speed, but the strong winds earlier this week howled through it.

As for towbars, mine is completely invisible when removed and the 13 pin socket retracted, and no cutting of the bumper. It's a standard Witter, IIRC

Streaming - the satnav does stream music from the iPhone 4, u have to select the track on the phone. Personally I prefer the cable as you can choose your track on sat nav screen.

I can stream via bluetooth from my iphone for using spotify with no issue, and the controls work on the steering wheel. How ever it doesnt list the track name. This is also the same when using the cable with Spotify i believe.
