Distorts the speaker covers on the back shelf and pops the metal grills off the plastic base, and they don't go back ever.

Those vinyl seats were horrible things!

I like leather too. Best seating material on balance I think, does not stain and wipes clean.

Sometimes patina is cool. Though it may not be cool if you buy a new BMW and (white leather) seats start to develop patina after three years.

overhead compartment for sunglasses. simple feature but so necessary for those who wear glasses. removes the clutter.

totally. also an SD card reader. the sound quality of CD's (often better depending on the bitrate of your mp3 files) without the clutter. i am not a fan of streaming music services at all!

on a side note also like how cig lighters have evolved into charging ports for mobile devices.

I'm with you here Chilli, mp3 music always sounds very flat and thin compared to CDs. I run a multi-disc changer in preference to using blue tooth for music. Not about to walk around with a cd player however!

Heated seats are a blessing for me. I'm an achy mess on cold mornings and they make life so much better.

Current car has luggage rail things in the boot so you can slide packages- again, very useful!

Aha! I understand now!
Used one for the first time today.
Because of your recommendation!

ACE!

Overhead sunglasses holders are no good when your car has been parked outside on a hot summers day, and the metal arms of your sunglasses leave burn marks on your head.

that does suck!

also recently discovered by accident that the panic button on the side of my key fob works while im driving!

i guess it works as intended because it caused me great panic and scared the heck out of the cars lined up next to me at the stop light!
