If they blatantly lie to me then of course I'll write em off. If you bullshit me it shows you don't respect me, why would I then go give them a sale.

I can agree with this. My salesman was very knowledgeable about the car itself but not about cars in general... I had an aftermarket downpipe (for those of you uneducated in the turbocharger world, that's the turbo to midpipe/catback section of the exhaust.... would be the header if the turbo wasn't in the way xD) on the MS3 when I traded it in.. told my salesman that and he said he'd have a tech replace the stock downpipe if I had it, which I did, and he kept his word. When he called me to tell me it was done, it was "they took out the muffler for you, you can come pick it up!"

I lol'd, but he's such a nice guy, and knowledgeable about the features on the car, and made the negotiation process painless and convenient, so I'll forgive him for not knowing the technical side of cars, he knows how to sell them though.

My uk focus titanium has one touch up and down for all windows and global closing.

Can also turn off the chimes for seat belt and keys etc via the settings menu on the dash. Same place as where you can turn off hill start assist, traction control etc.

I'm interested in this hidden menu though, whats on it? And will it reset the trip doing it? As I need the mileage for work.

After you switch off your engine, you have - i think - 5 secs to open or close your sunroof. :)

ok. just found this today. i knew the sedan had this option but for some reason i didn't think the 5 door (with the 60/40 seat) did. but in the center of the rear seat you can pull down the middle section for an arm rest and 2 more cup holders for the rear passengers. nice.

Just to be clear, not all sedans have it. Depends on the trim. My SE sport doesn't have it. Although, I would love to have it

I read somewhere that only the leather option gets the arm rest/cup holders in the back.
