Default Music system capabilities

Nippon Audio, NSCR-09

A few key capabilities from the manual, especially the bit about how to display the folder/ album and track/ file name! Images are a little larger than the recommended size so please click on them to open the full size to see the details...

Audio CD track name display, MP3/ WMA CD formats

Playback order of MP3/ WMA files on CD, believe the same applies for USB

iPod compatibility

Default Seat Covers, Steering Wheel Cover

Got seat covers and steering wheel cover installed..

Seat covers: Autoform, Creige/ Black combination, black portions are perforated, excellent PU material, decent finish. BUT the rear seat bottom and top Black portions don't line up.. They have said problem will be fixed, will update once done...

Steering wheel cover: Stanley black leather..

Cross-rods in the rear seat to prevent luggage intrusion, exposed during install. Nice but not as good as the full metal plate backs (eg Punto)...

A few additional comments
- Got caught with the non-folding rear seat.. Had a looong package that didn't fit the boot so had to go back to the old faithful WagonR with rear seats folded down
- As mentioned on another post was able to take a full load 4 adults + 2 kids quite comfortably, both in terms of space and pulling power uphill. The key is to get it in the 2,000+ rpm range
- Also don't see the need to upgrade the bulbs as folks recommend, was able to do a night drive on a completely unlit winding road with no problems.. Of course directional headlights would be nice
- Managed to hit a false gear once and a very slight problem with engaging reverse, hopefully will go away with use.. Clutch is very nice, unlike the first TD car

In my SX4 (2008 model), the dealer always fills 33 at each service. Can I reduce to 30 or is it only for the new SX4s?

The sticker on my car also states 30 psi. I guess its been done to soften the ride quality.

Paid closer attention to the iPod connectivity scanned copy of the music system's manual. The system now seems to control the ipod, that's great! surprised this feature is not being tom-tommed about.

I have may 2008 model and I always keep it at 30 psi, when I am driving alone, which is the case most of the time. When traveling fully loaded or on long drives, I switch to 32 psi

I'm sure all of you check your tyre's air pressure when cold? I keep mine at 33-34 psi when not too sure (which is often) and if it seems to hard immediately after driving out, let out a little 'by the ear'.

The new SX4 does mention 30 psi, however I am using the older 33 psi, and I find the ride perfectly comfortable.

I am not so sure about the feature being good enough. I connected my Creative Zen Neon 2 and had a problem in selecting the tracks. Of course you can do it, but its painful since the there is no interface per se. The screen of the Neon 2 just says "transferring data" and the one line SX4 ICE display does not allow you to select. At least I could not do it. If there is a way where specific albums/tracks/singers etc can be selected in one go, do let me know. I had posted the same comment on my own thread after buying the SX4 in mid-December.

I always check and fill early morning, most of the time from the electric portable air pump I have. I rely on my Micheline Air Pressure Gauge for psi.

Well I always thought the older SX4 ZXi had 15" rims as compared to the 16" ones on the new one. So the tyres would be different and so can expect a different recommended tyre pressure...

Re controlling the Creative Zen, to be fair, the ability to control the player (as opposed to just seeing it as a USB storage device) is very player specific. It would be very difficult to build a system that can control most of the commonly used portable players. Even in iPod you have a variety of specific devices to cater for.

The old SX4 Zxi also has 16" alloys. The tyre size is the same as in the new (205 R 60)
