Received my auto version a few days ago and tried it out this morning with my IP5. Setup is pretty much a breeze, but the sound quality is abysmal. I'm getting ridiculous levels of distortion in the signal. Not sure if this is due to poor internal amp to the product, or what, but there's really nothing I can do about it. Adjusting bluetooth output volume on the iphone doesn't help, of course, since there's no distortion in that signal anyway (other than minor loss of fidelity due to AD2P protocol). Distortion is also there whether I turn my head unit (OEM BMW 135i) down or up, so it's not an amplification issue on that end.

There are no volume controls on the unit itself, so I'm about to give up on this one. The audio is really that bad. Oh well, at least it was only $15...
