Thanks for your detailed review. Many of the points you mentioned I found out during my 100 km test ride as well (Sport+).
I won't miss the volume knob however. My replacement Android unit doesn't have one and I'm always using the steering wheel controls, even was before switching to the Android.
I hope the Type R will be just as pleasant - because that's what I'm really after.
You're very welcome, I hope it was useful.
The volume knob is a bit of a non-issue for me too even though I mostly listen to DAB.
When I look at today's Type R and reflect on past purchases I can't help but think it's actually a quite an excellent value proposition.
I'm sure it will be great fun...
