Another thing I noticed is that the door will still unlock when your impatient 3yo is yanking on the handle when you hit the unlock button on the fob. Luckily the door doesn't pop open, you have to let the handle down and pull it up again.

I'm pretty sure I didn't read about this on here yet. Inside the glove box is a perfect little cubbyhole that your owner's manual pack is supposed to go. It frees up a lot of space in there!

My Iphone has a two part bumper on it, so it is just a bit bigger and it tucks in their nice and securely.

...I stand corrected. >.<

My glovebox looks so empty now! And now when someone (inevitably) breaks into my car in downtown Milwaukee, they'll be like - WTH?

maybe with all that new space in the glove box -- a slim PS3 could be housed so one could game or watch blu rays on MFT

You have to admit -- there is a lot of space in there...

Oh... my... a-god. Should I do it? Slim PS3? Hell, we could probably fit a full-size one in there. But I want to keep room in there for some other junk (i.e. PS3 controllers, games, etc.) so we'll go slim.

EDIT: I'm not actually going to put a PS3 in my car... until we can figure out how to override MFT and play while driving.
