Agreed - I also have mine preset on the EVIC to speed. Didn't realized I lean slightly left when I drive until I couldn't see the last half of the speedometer win the WK2. Never had this issue in other cars, but with the speed displayed on the EVIC, it's a non issue.

Bah! Who cares about a heated steering wheel? What we need here in Phoenix (soon) is a cooled steering wheel!

(Actually looking forward to using the ventilated seats this summer )

I was just thinking that today. I wish my wheel cooled. The GC still needs a lot of work on the AC it is to weak for its size.

I second that, lost count of how many times I could not hold the HOT steering wheel.

And ventilated seats sooo nice

Hmm, I live in FL and we've already had a few days in the 90's and I find the AC has all the power needed to cool down and maintain 72 degrees. In fact, I routinely bump it up to 74 or 75 because it's a bit chilly.

Perhaps you aren't used to the way automatic systems work? They adjust the temperature of the AC based on not only the inside temp but the outside temp. On a spring day where the outside temp may only be 65 but due to the sun the inside temp may be 90 the vent temperature will be warmer than on a 90 degree day with the same inside temp. It's the way modern HVAC systems work.
