To dig my heels in at a really weird time and place and opt to step it up a notch and go with a Bluetooth-enabled distributor. What a weird thing to add now...well, yeah, indeed. Welcome to how I got to this place.
So, I'm going to install this thing and see if the app can tell me anything new.
The plan to enlarge the garage has hit a rather large obstacle for now. We're either going to do it at a later date, not do it and pay for storage for the VW or move to a different house with a proper garage. Those are the three options on the table. For now, the car will go into storage over the Winter.
I should have some time to work on this tomorrow - I'm looking forward to seeing what happens...
