    That does not work. Double press and hold for Windows down but have to insert key in driver's door and double turn and hold forward to roll back up.

    There is a hidden panal under pasanger floor mat for frame Vin and there is also a removable panal on rear bumper to access tow hook screw in hole.

    There is also hidden menus in the head unit

    If you roll down just the rear windows at highway speed the car will play you a dub step song called oscillating airstream .

    In the US, it doesn't (the windows, however, will go down with the remote). This is true for other Hondas and other manufacturers in the US . . . . it's a safety thing, to make sure someone sticking his/her body part out of the window when a driver is using a remote to close the window, is not injured. Us Americans need to be protected from doing stupid stuff, or we will sue for a trillion dollar judgment.

    Thank you so much. It wastes everyone's time not to signal. Say you are approaching an interaction with head on traffic. If I need to turn left and I see that the head on traffic has a left turn signal, we can both turn without slowing down. If either of us doesn't signal, the other has to wait to see what the other will do.

    To those who say they signal when others are around, you probably don't occasionally and it's better to just signal all the time, even at 3 AM on deserted roads. It becomes natural and you'll do it automatically without effort. To those who say no one signals where they live, well, be the change you want to see in the world.

    It's as bad as people who don't point by on the racetrack.

    So, has anyone figured out why there are two small hooks on the B pillar, next to the rear windows? Since they are right next to the windows, I can't imagine hanging anything on them, so there must be a specific purpose . . . . probably explained on p.1,332 in the manual.

    Coat hook, not for a hanger, just a coat. Audi A3 has it on the rear side of the B pillar also. More common on German cars.

    I have to give that a try, though I am pretty sure that my jacket would fall to the floor when I slam the rear door. :)

    I was just wondering about this today. I just hang my air fresheners there so they don't block my view up front.

    yes correct, most manufactures wont offer fully disabled traction only vsa ,. so on any mode you can disable vsa but on R MODE you can do both vsa and fully disable traction which allows you to launch the car and race without vsa coming on ., its not in the regular manual guide , i ordered the true manual for the hatch which included the type r and its close to 800 pages ., it also says do not fully disable for normal driving lol....... dude i to am lazy, especially to be looking at the manual i was lucky to have found it

    It unlocks the trunk remotely so someone else other than the key fob holder can open it.

    At least that's the only situation I see it being, uh, useful....
