Default Old member, new car...

I imagine nobody here remember me but I was semi-active a couple years ago. I had an 04', did the Bluetooth retrofit and all that fun stuff. Loved the car but wanted something sportier... But I digress.

I got an amazing deal on a fully loaded 2007... Bang & Olufsen, sport package, full leather, etc and considering my wife only drives 3000 miles a year I figured I'd buy it to replace her FX35. It's got a couple hiccups that I'd like to address. They are:

Massage seats - These turn off after 10 minutes. I know this is normal but is there any way to disable that? It's annoying to constantly hit the button.

Bang & Olufsen Tweeter Rattle - The right tweeter rattles against the windshield. Is there a known fix for this?

Suspension Level - On my 2004 I had 3 suspension levels: lift, comfort and dynamic with automatic changing ride height automatically. With this car I seem to have just two suspension levels. Lift raises the car and comfort, automatic and dynamic all are the same ride height with dynamic being noticeably flatter in the turns. Is this normal for the sport package?

TPMS Light Blinking - About every other drive the TPMS flat tire light will blink for a minute and the TPMS light will come on and I won't be able to see tire pressure. I know most people say just to disable the system but given it's my wife's car I'd like to fix it. Is this an easy replacement?

Ambient Light Strip - The one on the driver's door is noticably dimmer than the rest and does not dim with the control. I assume the strip itself needs replacing?

Suspension Level - That's how Sport Suspension works.
TPMS Light Blinking - Probably just replace sensors in all 4/5 wheels. OE Wheels have them.
