BV61-5310-NG* Left Front Coil
BV61-5310-NG* Right Front Coil
BV61-5560-NG* Left Rear Coil Spring
BV61-5560-NG* Right Rr Coil Spring
Engine Cover - Under Hood - I may need to insist if not actually there

BTW does anyone know what this means:

Ice Feature Pack 24

Dealer texted me to say it left the plant yesterday and should be to the dealer by Monday.

Pretty amazing since I ordered Aug 30th.
Kysor Radiator Shutter: This is the active grill shutters.

Picked mine up over the weekend. No pictures yet as it has been raining for the majority of the weekend. When I went to pick it up I checked for the problems other people were having, such as doors not hanging correctly and the headliner issues, but didn't have any of those. I did have an issue with the right-side, rear lights not actually being seated correctly. It stuck out about an inch, just wasn't pushed in all the way. When I got it home I noticed a 1/4" to 1/2" scratch on the backside of the driver's side mirror. It's small and shallow enough that I don't want to drive the 30 miles back to the dealership, but it does bother me a bit.

Haven't had too many issues with MFT with the exception of it freezing once already. Was changing stations on Sirius and it no longer responded (actually it seemed like the entire Sync system froze as I couldn't do any voice commands at all either). Happened on the way home from the grocery store which isn't too far away so it wasn't a huge issue, but once I turned off the car and got out the thing stayed on. After about 5 minutes or so it took to look up the fuse I needed to pull and where it was at it finally shut off by itself.

The only two things (besides the sluggishness of the MFT) that I am struggling to deal with is playing albums through Sync when I don't know the full album name. Apparently you need the complete album name, you can't just do a partial name (for instance some of my albums end with "Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" and if I don't say that it can't find it.) The second thing is that for whatever reason when my phone synced its address book it pulled not only my phone contacts, but also my Twitter contacts. No clue why this happened, they don't show up in my contact list on the phone.

When it stops raining I'll give it a thorough wash and wax and take some pictures, but it's not like it looks wildly different from all the other ones

EDIT: Oh, also the little shelf for the car's manual in the glovebox keeps dropping the manual. I don't know if I am putting it in incorrectly or what, but it refuses to stay in there.

Nice looking ride Jay. I take mine home tomorrow at high noon. Can't wait to get it and get the windows tinted. Wednesday is my day off so I'm going to run around and get some plate protectors and all season mats too.

Ok good to know, thanks!

Yeah, guess I worded that weird by saying uncertain. Meant I was uncertain I was getting active shutters.

But what is "Ice Feature Pack 24"

Prob not as exciting as it sounds. :)
