Looks pretty tacky to me. Maybe I could have handled the "M" with colors by itself, but the whole word "Performance?' No thanks.

It's not the parking brake. If it were, you would feel it as a sinking feeling in your brake pedal when applied, as it does when you manually apply the parking brake. I believe it is an electric...

Sounds flaky to me. I'm not sure your dealer could have even ordered an SAT and spec'd no paddles.

Anyway, have you seen this?

White smoke? More likely brake fluid than oil. Brake master cylinder leaking into the vacuum booster, would be my guess.

I see the pictures. I've done worse to mine and they did smooth out and vanish over a short time.

Don't worry about the scuffs on your steering wheel. They seem to magically heal up by themselves in a couple of weeks. (Really)

You didn't mention any smell, so the "smoke" is more likely water vapor. Is there a puddle of water under your car? If not, then the A/C condensation drain is most likely clogged.

When you say "before" and "now" when do you mean? Your battery voltage needs to be changed at a higher voltage in colder weather.

Can somebody please point me to where I can find the brake fluid reservoir? I've come up with a "low brake fluid" service required notice and I'd like to check it out.

Thanks!
