Sat nav shits me also, and my grab handle is mangled also!

The wheel bolts doesn't really worry me so far

I had forgotten the absence of a good ol fashion dip stick shits me also. The auto check is handy, but surely they could have installed a manual dipstick also for a peace of mind! This will become an issue in 10 years time when the oil level sensors start to play up...

Oh and a spare wheel also, a can of goo is handy, but no good if you blow out a tyre sidewall on a 30 series profile which will leave the nice 19" rim all mangled if you attempt to continue on with the goo leaking out of a punctured sidewall.
