Our other car is an S80 and lex is right, it can be damn anoying having it on all the time. If I forget to turn it off and get to close to a care at a trafic light I starts beeping. Usually right in the middle of an important news storie or my favorite song...

Along the lines of the S80 v BMW this is the second case of something working exactly backwards. On the S80 the parking break is push to activate and pull to release of course it is the other way around on the GT. (Which makes sense as you wouldn't want to lean over and activate it while you were moving!)

"...hovering like a fly waiting for a windshield on the freeway..." p.g.
