Wow. Nice summary! But I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to get multiple bluetooth devices to connect. Is that only with MFT? I have the SE with Sync (203A package), but no MFT.

Cheers

I learned the other day that in the SE 4 speaker stereo there is other setting beyond what the "sound' button gives you. If you hit "menu" and go the audio setting there is a whole large menu of things to do. Most beneficial for me where the occupancy setting, all occupants works much better for me, driver only makes the sound over boosted. I also messed with the preset EQ settings, those create a much better balance then what I could achieve with "sound menu" EQ. I found all this my accident when I was messing with menus the other day, but there is a break down of all the menus in the owner's manual.

I thought this was an interesting find on the 'Ambient lighting'.
When you open either the driver or passenger front doors the leds in the handles and cup holders turn from the current color setting you have set to red. Maybe a warning sign to others that the door is being opened? I couldn't find anything in the owners manual mentioning the color change.

Here's a video I did (click on Image). Sorry for the quality, but you get the idea.

Found that out after I washed/ waxed it for the first time, took my sweet a$$ time cleaning the windshield so it's spotless. And when i got done, wipers cycled when i started the car.

Rain sensing wiper equipped cars: The frequency of the auto rain sensing wipers is controlable by the increments on the wiper stalk, just like your old car, but auto, with a little manual adjustment thrown in for your tastes.

Found out today, even though the Salesman and the Delivery person said I didn't get cloth mats I did.

They said the winter package, w/ rubber mats eliminated the cloth mats. Today I found out the cloth mats are underneath my rubber mats!

Only took me 4 days to notice, lol
