Or holding the door unlock handle? There's got to be a way! (Or not... 1-press window opening is fairly luxurious as it is.)
I think I read somewhere that the European models have this feature, but I'm not sure. If so, I wonder what would be required to make it work on the US models.

I'd like to find out.

Negatory on the global window opening by holding the unlock button as well as taking the key out and holding it in the door unlock position. :-(

i like all the little cubby nooks the rear passengers have. under the seat corner, in the doors. you think they would have been a bit more creative up front..

Not sure its a trick per se, but I unlock my driver's door by holding my hand in my door handle, and I unlock mine and my passengers (actually all 4) by holding my hand in my driver's side rear door. That way most of the time I am opening just mine, and when riding with someone I can open theirs without goofing around with their door handle inside or the lock unlock sequence on the dash.

102 degrees F at night? No, I don't miss living in north Texas at all.

You can also change this so the drivers door will open all doors at once if you want.

I got the trophy just doing a short trip down the highway, had the MPG screen on and it suddenly popped up. Was at 27.9mpg.

Well I feel ripped off! I am getting around 33 MPG and I don't get a trophy. Haha

I think it's based on acceleration and such. I have a very light foot.
