The hi-viz vest hidden away in the very thin storage pocket in the rear seats, thankfully not needed to date

Folding mirrors.
All they do when folded is catch water which then leaves a dirty mark on your door as you unfold them each time and the water spills out.
I use them after I walk away! I can never remember if I've pushed the fob and locked the car!!! If I turn around and see the mirrors tucked in I know I have :) I got into work the other week and couldn't recall locking the car, rather than walk all the way back (5 mins) I called a work mate and asked if he could drive past my car on his way in and check to see if my mirrors were folded in...they were so it put my mind at ease ;)

To be pedantic for a moment:


Folded mirrors is not a reliable indication that the car is currently locked.

Folded mirrors just indicate that the car had been locked at some time - and could be currently unlocked.

ALSO

You can have the tailgate on the first latch (ie: half locked), press the lock button, the mirrors fold, and the indicators flash.
And your car is in a half-secure situation - but you think everything is OK, because the mirrors folded.

It's not infallible.
:D

Does the car not automatically lock anyway after a few minutes if left with the doors shut and no key in the ignition?

This is usually only if you have previously unlocked it and not opened any doors or the boot since

So it won't auto-lock itself if you've been for a drive, get out and forget to lock it

Auto wipers and lights...i'm cleaver enough to realise when its raining or dark...

Wise you are my young padawan!! lol

Personally I think the auto lights/wipers are superb, particularly the wipers. No more fart-arsing about switching between intermittent and normal, pretty faultless setup I reckon.........:whistle2:

Oh and after a few months of ownership I've used pretty much all the features except the rear and front fogs.

The switches, unlike others, aren't that good either.

I have Start/Stop switched permanently off. I never use Hold Assist and never use any of the 'phone' functions as the only phone I have in car is in the centre console and always switched off. Other that that I do use most of the 'features' fitted, some only once in a while.

How did you manage to disable start/stop permanently?

It can be done using VCDS.
Go to Module 19 (Can Gateway)
Adaption (10)
Go to channel: Star-stop-voltage-limit
The default is 7.6V - change this value to 12.1V.

Mine has never cut in since I made this change.

Where can you get one of those from?

There was a thread a while back which you might find on the search but from memory I think they are on eBay?
