Yep and hopefully apps like spotify mobile get updated to send that info as well. I'm not sure right now if the apps just haven't been updated for ios 5 right now or apple isn't allowing that info to be passed.

I searched to see if this has been mentioned or not and couldn't find it, but if you lock the doors while a door is ajar the horn will beep two short beeps to let you know.

I love being able to set up a playlist (or shuffle all) on my iPhone and playing it over the bluetooth audio link. I never have to take the phone out of my pocket, and I can skip forward and back with the steering wheel controls. Nice!

This might have been mentioned already, but I just discovered it yesterday. If you activate the Sirius replay function, the left and right buttons on the right side of the steering wheel get remapped from channel changing to skipping forward and back in the replay buffer.

Came up with this one the other day. If you use the auto headlight feature, but don't want your lights to stay on when you shut the car off (for whatever reason you may have), just turn the engine off then flip the key back to acc then back off real quick. Quicker than reaching for the switch since your hand is already on the key.

Finally found the rear window wiper.
Flicked it on somehow accidentally and it is wiping furiously away while i am going crazy trying to turn it off.
Tip of the regular wiper is the little rocker switch.
Jeez.
I have all sorts of buttons i still do not know what they do, But i am not That stupid to just flip them!!
(One might be the James Bond seat ejector....!)

I was a little bummed that there were no shopping bag hooks...

WELL, THERE ARE! They are on the sides of the trunk rather than on the back of the seats where I am used to seeing them! My Ti hatch has 2 hooks on both sides! Awesome!
