Current list going to the dealer -

Main -
1. Chrome trim on left side of steering wheel flaking off.
2. Headliner rattle on the DS rear of the moonroof opening.
3. Left hatch closing handle bolt issue.
4. Oily residue on the valve cover near the coils (may be nothing, but worth looking at).
5. Hatch offset is rubbing paint off of the top of the bumper.
6. PS and DS tail lamps are starting to rub paint off near on the > portion of the housing.
7. Rearview mirror placement (tilting down at night provides artifacts in the reflection, unlike tilting up).
8. Plastic trim piece on hatch is rubbing paint off similar to tail lamps.
9. PS roof rail trim piece that is warping.
10. Headlight adjustment/aiming.

Misc -
1. LED footwell lamps and the red (heat) portion of the temp knob stay on even when the car is off and alarm is armed. Battery drains are a feature?
2. Can't dim center (radio) LCD.
