Not for me, but a friend had a window shattered which dented the roof and also bent part of the c-pillar.

3D map or audio or whatever on left; traffic flow map on right (I find it entertaining and the small audio/entertainment/trip computer/etc. screen on right is too plain and too much white/dark space).

Ditto for me on both topics - Primacys are outstanding (26k miles and counting - no bubbles or warped rims) and Goodyear (Excellence or LS2) are utter garbage.

Test cars. Light clusters are easy to remove and use dummy ones.

The only time they don't do it is when they're testing LED's or new laser lights.

which brand of tire do you have?

After going from Goodyear (Excellence and RS2) > Michelin (OEM Primacy RFT), I haven't had a single one.

I think I had about five bubbles on the Goodyears.
