The HID option I understand but the heated windshield....not many cars have that as an option so I would think that's alot to ask of a fairly limited sports car, no?

Not many in the USA, it is a stand alone option in the EU and other markets. it is a great option and I have used it way more times than the normal defrost.

I work for a auto group that has a vw, Audi, Land Rover and jaguar dealership and only a few land rovers have the heated windshield as an option. I also live in Canada where heated windshield would be an amazing thing because 2 of my 4 cars park outside through winter.

So I just got my car back from the dealership after leaving it there for 3 days. I described the rattles very carefully, where they were located, and how to reproduce them. I got calls first saying they couldn't reproduce it. Then the service guy told me that because it's a sporty car that rattling noises are normal, essentially saying that they weren't going to fix it. As soon as I picked up the car, all 3 rattling noises were as present as ever. At least they didn't charge anything for not fixing my problems.

My plan right now is to drown out the rattling. I have wanted to put in a Green filter anyway to get some better engine sound. If that isn't enough I may get a catback as well. I figured that would be a fun way to solve the problem.

>>>Did you have it written up to fix those or figure out where they are? If so & they just threw out a CNV= can not verify, ford doesn't like to see that, when you do a customer survey for that dealer.

Thats BS the writer is giving you. Go hit up another dealer.
Rattles= I have a couple, & their coming from the passenger side, so I need to have someone drive or ride to figure out where they are. Mine are either the A-pillar or B-pillar & not all the time.

My hood vibrates. You can see it from inside the car when I climb into my driveway. I'm ok with that. I can't imagine what life is like for those with something stronger than the Cobb RMM...

For those of us who are required to have them I really can't stand the stupid front license plate location.

WTF were they thinking?
