I borrowed this topic from a different room on SS..but...to you
what is the most useless factory feature on the R?

To me it is two things: stock secondary IC and a button to open the fuel door....

I don't like the safety feature of having to hit the trac control 5 times to turn off. I think it should be three pushes; on, reduced, off. My only guess is they did this to protect the car owner from themself?

- are they only on the SR???

Most useless factory feature:
The black plastic shroud next to the air filter box.
It does nothing except cover up nothing - and all for a location you never see (becasue your hood is closed)

having to turn the headlight switch on to use the high beams. having 7 cupholders when there are up to 4 people, but if you have 5 people, you can really only use 3. (if you have the cupholder in the dash). being able to remove the rear seat bottom, because then you have no support for the seat back.

The FLEXSTD setting will convert your headlight switch - sort of (DRLs only in the O position.)

I had an '02 Audi S6 Avant The only cup holder popped out of the dash, was flimsy and, with the stiff suspension, tended to spill coffee all over the radio!

glove box hinge. it's crap, and despite never really seeing it, it bugs the hell out of me everytime i get in my car. My glovebox hangs down slightly on one side and in advanced i swear the glovebox is going to fall apart. The fix is a pain in the ass too.

Headlight wipers, I guess they're functional but rather flimsy.

Early R cupholder design. What was wrong with the design on the xc70 and v70?

THIS! Everyone else is complaining about features that are there for a reason, just not the best implementation. This remote has NEVER been used in my car. In fact I need to go remove the batteries in case they leak.
