What I like and dislike thus far:
Handling and ride - I was worried the sports suspension and 20in wheels might have been too harsh but both comfort and handling are excellent, and I drive on some pretty appalling roads.
Performance - early days and still taking it steady but I'm very impressed. I thought I would miss the higher performance of the last car but not thus far.
S-Tronic - very good, no significant lag from a standing start even in D. Haven't felt the need to resort to sports yet.
B & O Sound System - Very impressive, especially the DAB, no tuning required and opened up a whole new world of channels. The ability to plug a portable HDD is very welcome - massive content and very fast response and a nice compartment to stow it in the glove box.
Advanced Key and Homelink are brilliant. How nice it is not to have to fiddle around with a key or garage fob. Homelink range is very good also.
Panoramic Sunroof - just opens the whole car up and the blind seems very effective.
Advanced Parking System - the camera works very well, particularly at night. No excuse at all for the wife to back into anything when she is driving back from the pub. The Lexus camera was useless at night.
Tow Bar - if you think you are going to need a tow bar get the factory fit, it's a very neat piece of kit.
Wing Mirrors - I just love those huge wing mirrors
I've not found too much to annoy me up to now other than having to use the button on the boot lid to close it. I'm used to being able to close it from both the fob and the drivers seat. The only other minor grumble is the delay that I sometimes get before I can get the car to lock from the button on the door handle.
