I'm talking about the interior lights on the driver's or passenger's side of the car, including the door panels and the console trim lights by your legs. They turn blue for a few seconds when you lower the temp and turn red when you raise the temp.

We need video of this. This is just too amazing not to see it in action. It's a small detail but large in terms of them implementing such an idea.

I tried to attach a video, but the forum won't allow it apparently. Yes, I can confirm that it does work.

Another minor feature I didn't realize initially: startup music. The volume was set pretty low when we picked it up and we could only hear the music faintly in the background and I didn't realize it was even there at first.

Sad. Maybe put it up on youtube and then link it here? You'd sure get a lot of views on that as it's a real unique feature.
