So I've had a signal noise issue on my Farenheit (Power Acoustic) 10.4" LCD screen since about 6 months into ownership. I've dealt with it for about 3.5 years, it wasn't bad and I just chalked it up to sensitive electronics/not a good ground.

Step 1: Install cheap, egg-shaped aftermarket Pro-Line wheels on your VW.
Step 2: Come to my dealership complaining about a driveline vibration.
