^this is very funny. :)

Hadn't tried this before or didn't know I could, but with sync and nav
Said Navigation/Where Am I and it tells you. Many quicker ways to do this than with voice (as most times) but neat to try.

I have to say, the car looks so much cooler when you open the door and it's just the footwell/door coloured LEDs and the two screens and gauges lit up. :D
is there any way to reverse this? I tried holding the light again and it flashed but didn't work. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

Do you know about the "I'm hungry" command?

If you have nav, and say "I'm hungry" for the voice command, it will show you every restaurant in the area

It's listed on the first page of this thread I see, but its still really neat if you don't know it.

Just press the button, don't hold it.

Hmmm ... just found a problem with a feature I like. I normally drop my car off for service and have the dealer lock the key in the car and I pick my car up at night. Well .. you cant lock the key in the car. Anyone have any ideas how to intentionally lock the key in the car only using one fob?

Its not a big deal, but it was just a handy way to pick up my car if the dealer closes before I can pick up my car.

Manual transmission owners: we all know about the up shift light. If you're in too high of a gear for your speed and you try to accelerate there's actually a down shift light.

Found that out while driving up a steep hill and my RPM dropped pretty quickly. Though I did notice it only comes on when your approaching near stalling conditions, so the less you see this light the better.

I am very very impressed with how this car will hold speed in 5th gear (55 mph) going up hill. There's only one hill I can think of that I have to down shift on and that's 80 miles away from me.
