Update2

I found an update disc for the COMAND system online today (a torrent).
This worked out amazing. The previous owners had never flashed the head unit, so my NAV gave no ETA and it didn't play MP3 discs.

Now, it seems to be a way fresher/less beta/1999 feeling device.

While I was looking through the manual, I also found a 2006.1 original Nav disc (it had the original 2004 disc running), so double bonus.

Now I just need that fuel system vapor hose (hopefully that's all that's wrong).

I've been trying to fix the P0455 (I think) code for vapor loss in the fuel system.
So far the gas cap, a vent hose and the canister purge valve have all been swapped but the light keeps returning.

My in-car DVR (they assumed it was a second radar detector and left it plugged in for the test drives) picked up some mistreatment of the car by maintenance personnel (trying to "boil the tires off") and about a thousand dollars later, I still have the original problem, with the inspection due date being just around the corner.

I would probably consider just using the dealerships in the Raleigh, NC area.

Also - my wife ordered a front plate to hide the ugly (6) screwholes left by previous owners in northern states. Let me know if it's gaudy/classy - it was either this or a transformers decepticon (which I might still buy instead)
