    Flying plywood into the front of the car at 80 mph

    this sounds like a comprehensive claim, so provided you carry comprehensive you won't get dinged for a raise in rates. Comprehensive deductibles are usually in the $50 to $200 range…peanuts compared to the $2k + it will cost to repair if bumper damage.

    I can't seem to get the SW 4366 firmware update to "start". I've followed the instructions faithfully, the car is "off" and the radio is "on" using the radio button. I see the message that says "CD/DVD ERROR" but nothing happens after that. I'm beginning to wonder if my SW version is too old to...
