The hood over the cluster is so big that without backlighting the dials aren't very visible. It might just be something you don't notice until its gone

Question about the snap in adapter

With the car off I can hear the fan running but oddly enough it only comes on when the iPhone screen is active. If the phone is locked the fan doesn't run

Wheel locks?

My dealer installs them on every car on the lot but nothing is a give-away, it's all worked into the price. More then likely it's worked into the PDI charge.

Freebies when picking up?

I got a gift certificate to use at the dealership's store. It was enough for a hat and a travel mug.
