Just found this forum from a friend on the Audifans.com mailing list. I'm originally from WI, and also spent 10 years in Montana (yes, during the "reasonable and prudent" days).
I've had a V1 for about four years now, and love it. However, it recently died, and I'm going to have to get a new one. Probably pick it up in the next month or so. I didn't have the concealed unit before, but I'm getting one this time, and I'm going to have it modded with the colored LED's.
BTW, I'm a car guy, mostly work on VW/Audi stuff, but love just about anything cool.
My daily driver is an 86 Audi 4000 Quattro, and my track car is an 85 4000 Quattro.
