Gently pull the side panel off (3 clips) for access. If you need additional room for wiring, you can also pull down the bottom left panel (4 clips?) containing the blanks.

Rear Shade?! I wish the US had all these nice convenience options... especially folding mirrors!

Trunk button appears to be stacked above the fuel door release (opposed to beside it like ours). I too would love a rear-shade and mirror folding options; about the only things missing from our cars really.

We are also missing the feature to put all windows up and close sunroof with remote, we can only open them - not close them

Yeah, that doesn't make any sense.

Thanks. Would you mind putting some arrows on the pic showing what you mean by "side panel" and "bottom left panel containing the blanks."

Thanks a bunch for everyone's response. Oh, and that is not an actual picture from my car, I found that one on the forum somewhere. I wish I had that switch panel. Seems us Americans got jacked with some convenience items.

this actually turns into a coin dispenser once you start taking turns at any speed.
