You turn the sound system on or off by pressing in the volume dial on the console.

I guess the fun fact associated with this is that the radio stays on when the hands free key thingee is turned to the off position and engine is killed- until the door is opened to exit the car.

You can do anything you want to do to your body...so long as somebody else is paying your healthcare bill...righ? Am I right?
You're a good one to talk about being "uptight".

Your from SF, my old hometown, and you criticize smokers, which I'm not, but I wonder if you give the same counseling to people who have lets say, unhealthy or abnormal sexual practices.

No, you're not right, you're just one of the programmed robots who spout political correctness at each opportunity, while conveniently overlooking the obvious contradictions in your own life and community!

There it is guys, if you have the smoking package, you are an evil SOB who deserves the wrath of the PC crowd! You know the ones, the TOLERANT ones.

curiously, the bluetooth connection to the car stays on and active after the car is turned off and the door is open if the call was initiated while the car was on

Not that I'm aware of with the multifunction wheel, you have to press the radio volume **** on the center stack.

Sorry, I'm obtuse today, but that is turning the radio off...unless I'm missing something?

When manually extending spoiler for post-wash drying, retracted auto fold mirrors will swing out, too.

Press and hold the button in the center of the volume **** down for a few seconds and the PCM Unit will actually power down.

For some reason that bit of information reminds me of story I heard about a Cadillac.

It is the one where a guy takes a friend for a ride in his new convertable and the guy pokes around in the center console and finds a golf tee. He asks, "What's that for" and is told that it is "to hold ***** while driving".

I had the same reaction as he did. Those guys think of everything!

Been live streaming Antenna Eins Radio station from Stuttgart via iPhone Bluetooth and Bose. Getting traffic info sometimes cracks me up.

The car has 2 rear center brake lights.
The rear spoiler has a second center brake light integrated into it, which only works when the spoiler is deployed.
When the spoiler is retracting, the center brake light function is automatically transferred from spoiler back to the center brake light located on the rear deck.

Yes, but only a German would use that solution. A Frenchman... well, I suppose that's obvious.
