Default New owner, audio and suspension questions

Hey there - I purchased an A3 2 months ago - 2.0/white/black/premium/DSG. Love the car, and have a couple of questions.

1. Is there a DIY method of getting a signal from a 3rd party device (nav, phone) into the standard radio without going through the FM route? I've tried a couple of FM adapters, they drove me nuts with having to change frequency. What I want is to listen to podcasts from Blackberry 8800. I don't want to buy an iPod, have had those in the past and their GUIs don't work like my brain does... even though I am a big Mac guy. Otherwise I would have gone with the DICE kit.

2. Is it me or this car rolls quite a bit too much while cornering? I am not talking about racing, just normal every day high way entrance/exit type of situation. What's an easy mod to reduce this behavior? This car is a lease, so I don't want to do something radical or expensive. I've had too GTIs in the past, a VR6 and a 1.8t and they didn't exhibit this as much.

Thanks!

Stas

Buy a car with the sports suspension. Ooppps...too late.

Lease, well, you're SOL unless you mod. Stiffer springs, FSD, or Coilovers would be best. A RSB would work some and help without being too much of a PITA.

I'll sell you my Sports springs, shocks, and struts if you'd like???

Cheers!

I wish I could've gotten the sports package. There was a cool red one on the lot, pretty much the MSRP as the one I got it, but the rates on the lease came out completely different, almost 20% higher.

Anyway, I think I'll look into the RSB then... but thanks for the offer!
