Well I guess that explains why I've had to urge to go "commando" since May.

I'm really stuck on that gas door - there's a little hook on the inside of the gas door to hang the cap tether on so the cap doesn't rattle against your paint while you fill the tank.

The V6 A6 has 4th gear hold ... When cruising on the highway in 6th gear, blip the throttle, and the trans will downshift and hold in 4th gear for passing. To cancel the 4th gear hold just ease the throttle like normal.

Same here. I felt like Clark Griswold.

I discoverd that last night as well. I was looking for a holder in the fuel door itself as first. Duh.

Our cars have two part power window switches.
Light pressure (first click) window will stop when you let go.
Hard pressure (second click) window goes into express down all the way down.

Just start the Pandora app, it will turn off the ipod music. USB seems to work a little cleaner than Bluetooth but both work well.

For the random setting on CD's and USB drives the radio will keep the random setting even after the car is turned off for a long period of time if you don't change the source of the music.

Also, if you have a smart phone with a microphone like my Motorola backflip and you are plugged into the auxilary jack with the 3.5mm cable and you are playing your mp3's, you do not need blue tooth. If the phone rings, the music stops and you press answer on your phone, you can talk hands free through the radio without holding the phone to your ear. I was suprised to find this out because my non smart phone would not let you talk, only listen. This also works in my Buick Century winter car. I plug the smart phone into the cassette adapter and it works through the radio.

I thought this was a GM thing - first pull unlocks the door, second pull opens the door?

ABL lighting only comes on when either the car is ON or the DRIVER door is open. Opening the passenger door does not activate it....

random info discovered when wiring in some lighting mods

At least there's a pressure latch - on a Dodge Charger rental a few years back I literally spent 10 min trying to either find a button/latch inside the vehicle, or prying the door open with my fingers. Lo and behold, you press the left side in and the right side swings open, kinda like a dummy door or swing. On the current Chargers there's a little notch on the right side so you can just pull it, I guess they had enough morons like me who couldn't figure it out.

I tried this on my early order 2010 SS and it did not work. I had to move the shifter back and forth. Is this a 2011 feature?

When you turn your windshield wipers on, your headlights come on, but you can override them with your halos

The 1st pull unlocks the door and moves the window down a crack to clear the outer molding so the 2nd pull opens the door with the window out from under the molding.
happens fast

This is semi-related to this thread but one time I went to fill up my Infiniti G35 coupe and spent 10 minites trying to get the gas cap open. I had never had problems with it before. Finally I realized that I had locked the car doors. So, you cannot open the gas cap in the G35 w/o unlocking the doors.
