Re: Paint Issues
No paint issues for mine.
As for the USB port in the armrest, I presume you have checked the cable (say by using it to connect to your computer). Next, have you tried using a different iPod to see if there is any better luck getting that recognized by the radio unit? I use a iPod nano 5th Gen with no problems.
BUT my centre armrest connector went dead after about 10 weeks of ownership, and had to get the dealer to repair it (they said a loose connection at the radio).
