How do I go about ing Renault to request that they update the firmware on their Bluetooth radios?
I have a 2012 Renault Grand Megane, but the list of approved phones for the Bluetooth is for phones built on or before December 2011. Obviously, there are a lot of new phones that have been created since then including iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, Samsung SIII, IV, Sony Experia T, Z etc. These newer phones are not compatible with the Bluetooth on the radio. If one connects their phone to the Bluetooth so as to have a hands-free option, they risk upsetting the electronics in their automobile.
Really, what I would like to know is if Renault intend to update the firmware to accept the newer phones that have come out since Dec 2011?

I'm looking at buying an old automobile - late eighties early nineties. Something that will be a classic hopefully. Is there some way of paying reduced tax as it would only be used a couple of weeks a year? Those weeks might be spread out across the year.
