Thanks everyone.

Tbone: I tried flipping the mirror's dimmer toggle and it helped, but IMO isn't a solution as much as a bandage. Low idle hasn't happened since that one day, so I'm putting that on the back burner until it's time for an oil change. Synthetic will go in for sure.

Beta: Smell still hasn't gone. Between work and night classes I haven't had time to reclean the interior, so hopefully that'll help. If not, dealer is definitely getting a visit. No one should have to gag or puke from the chemical off-gassing.

Crystal: PM will be coming your way shortly. I've noticed a couple other things while showing the car to friends that are definitely not normal. My hatch, for one, is off-center or warped (I'll try to get you pics), and the PS roof rail cover is warping near the rear clip.

Remomo: Only vertical adjustment of the headlights according to the owner's manual. I have great forward visibility, but I have almost no illumination of the right shoulder. Lot of deer here, so I'd rather have a right bias instead of a left bias. I also don't want to blind oncoming traffic.

Thanks again.
