Just picked the car a few days ago, but I've already got a few things I've noticed that I'm not sure if it's a dealer issue, or if I'm just doing it wrong / settings are wrong.

(In order of priority)
After the car is warm (warm day, not warm engine), with the doors locked (locked from the key FOB) and using the keyless entry (not unlocking with the FOB as I get close), I swipe and the window cracks down to open, but the door doesn't pop open. After a second or two the windows closes, I swipe again, and this time the window drops and the door pops open. I've only seen this happen on the drivers side (I have a feeling this is a dealer fix).

I have the car settings set to dip the side mirrors when I place the car into reverse, but they only seem to twitch a little. If I move them manually, they return to where they originally were after I place the car in drive (I have a feeling this will be a dealer fix).

Last, when in the car in the sun, AC on 'Auto', when it gets hot, the fans get fast. This (sometimes, not always) causes a pretty loud whistle just behind the drivers (LHD) head. If I turn down the fans, or crack open the passenger window, it goes away. Opening and re-closing the door does not solve it.

Thanks for any input you guys have. I will be taking the car back to the dealer for some follow-up items from delivery so I'll be bringing these up with them shortly, but I just wanted to see if any other owners have seen these (*very* minor) issues in their cars.

#1 sounds like a dealer fix

#2 you do have to move them to where you want them when you reverse (first time). They should return to that location next time you reverse. You might have to save that location too - I don't recall.

#3 The fan is LOUD.

Never heard of this happening with the window,but remember it dosent get so hot here,so that might be an issue.
The wing mirror does twitch if you have not set it right,from what i remember put it in reverse then change the mirror then it should be set,but it could be the other way round in putting the mirror down after you have put it in reverse,its one ot those:eek:
The fans are noisy and this is a fix for 2013mo,so your stuck with it,but as they are so efficient set the fan speed lower and it will be ok.Other than that seems you have a perfect car:)

Or read what Hyper said,he beat me to it with a more accurate discription!!!!!!

So when I went out today, I set the mirrors where I wanted them, and then noticed that it keeps that dip setting everytime I reverse (I discovered what you all told me to do lol). I'm sure if I had read the manual, it would have been in there :rolleyes:

The fan being loud is fine, I can handle that. The whistle I'm hearing is very distinctly behind me and to my left, and as I mentioned, goes away when I crack a window so it's not just the fan itself. It sounds like a pressure difference being forced through a crack in some weather stripping or something. Again, it's not every time I crank up the A/C, so maybe it'll go away as the weather stripping wears in. falb, I'll have to try the recirc next time I hear it and see if that "fixes" it, thanks!

I'll update again after I talk to Alessandro or Mike and see what they say about the door.

Yup, right there on page 119-120 :eek: Don't I feel silly now. Thanks!
