    iPhone 5, my Cadillac mobile app push notification alert, so I know when to get it serviced.

    I like the emobssed V logos on some of the plastic parts that you would only see if you started tearing stuff down(like the hood latch cover). They're like baby easter eggs.

    I like the stiffer steering feel in comp mode. I drive it in that mode all the time.

    I like all of the above and the V embossed microfiber cloth that was still attached to the back of the headrest for cleaning the black plastic inside without scratching it.

    Would be more awesome if it blew up after you walked away.

    The power liftgate on the wagon. It's more useful than I thought it would be.

    Zhariak, I am not sure if you are aware of Lemon law but in the first 18 months of owning the car if you car goes in service for more then 30 days total i believe it is called a lemon. My buddy got a C6 and drove it for 2 years 20k miles and had different issues. He got a lawyer and got GM to buy back the car and it ended up costing him 5000 for the whole 2 years he had the car. The lawyer also gets paid by GM.

    Magnetic Ride Control absolutely rocks. Part of my startup sequence is to press the little suspension button to enter the "sport" suspension mode. I haven't experienced "tour" mode in months. It's gotten to the point where the "tour mode" suspension feels floaty. I know it's not, really, but you get the picture. This is the first car in ten years in which I have not been compelled to change the suspension for better handling.

    Just imagine driving I-77 in West Virginia, the entire way north from the Virginia border, with the suspension and transmission in "sport" mode. (Curves and tunnels if you haven't done the drive.) I did on my way back from Disney World last month, and it. was. heaven.

    +1 ^ I don't want to change the MR shocks for any reason. Not while she's pulling weekend crusing and sometimes DD duty.

    +2, it's astonishingly good, in both modes. On my recent 1200 mi. round trip to Santa Cruz, we came across a bunch of bridge reworks on the CA 15 going S from Vegas. Big dip in the road, rough surfaces, etc. I was watching other cars going over them and they would keep bouncing afterward, it was pretty violent at freeway speeds, I was going about 85.

    But not in the V. Not even close. Hit them at full speed, and there was a dip and then the suspension immediately calmed everything down. So much control. And that was in touring mode, so even without the stiffer shock rates in sport mode, the MRC is still doing its job by reacting to varying road conditions with immensely fast response times. And that is legitimately impressive, for any car.
