My car journey to a GTR...

I picked up my GTR on Saturday. Below is my car journey to getting one:

1994 Corsa SRI
2003 VX220
2001 Civic Type-r
2002 Clio 172 cup
2004 e46 M3
2007 Corsa VXR
-----------------------
2013 R35 GTR

I am loving the car but I have a few questions since I have got it:

Speed humps: I have been close to touching a few times. Do you guys find this a problem?

Music: Playing music via AUX is this possible? How do you get music playing through your phone, I have galaxy s5. Can you play music on a usb stick?


Thanks

Speed humps, best approach I found is obviously slow, but to get both tyres on each jump (if split) so the exhaust passes through the gap rather than trying to straddle either side of a single hump.

Music, I just Bluetooth stream it. I pair my phone as a media device then as a telephone and when you connect it'll be used as both. Think there's a thread on here how to do it.

The trick with any car is not to brake into a speed hump, the front will dip if you do this. Brake early and get on the gas to lift the front as you ride over the hump.
