"oh you got the automatic? SICK!" - no one, ever

It won't even go that far.

"oh, you got a 911? SICK!" - everyone

A 911 with a PDK is still a 911...

Valid point, pretty sure it will still say 911 on it. Besides, if I get the manual I am way more likely to misbehave and scare the other half from time to time. She swats me really hard and it hurts lol.

Purchased some dinner for the ants living in my mk7. Gonna do this overnight on the weekend. Hope they like it the meal. Thanks for the advice. I'll try to catch a pic on how many I get.

You do want phone be BT paired to the AAwireless unit. Try unpairing phone BT from head unit/car - I think it get confused when starting the car otherwise. Not sure if true, just my experience. I don't remember the wifi details but I think it walks you thought what permissions to enable during setup. Worst case, you can reset theAAwireless unit, delete and reinstall the app to your phone and try again. This article from the AAwireless support page may help:

Thanks. I was able to get it to survive restarts by unpairing the phone to the HU, pairing, and then running through the AAwireless installation procedure. When I start the car, I have to unlock the phone in order for it to pair to the AAwireless and start AA.

I think it got screwed up because I paired the AAwireless with an old firmware version then ran the upgrades. I think it's best to install it, run the upgrades, reset, and start all over.

That seems like it might be a phone bluetooth setting getting in the way maybe? Something requiring the phone to be unlocked to connect to a BT device? Not sure if that's even a thing. Mine will pair with my phone in my pocket, no unlocking required.

Check your Android auto settings. Believe there is a slider for connect when locked or something I recall having to uncheck for wired, so I assume it'd apply to wireless as well.
