I'm a "normal" person most of the time, make s the Sport modes a little more exciting. If I know the Missus will be driving the car, I leave it in Eco mode (she's a bit of a lead foot).

Approaching 11,000 miles and my Bridgestones are at 8/32nds. But I drive like a grandpa much of the time. I suspect I'll get another year or so out of these tires, then upgrade.

I've found that in SNOW mode the downshifts are much more conservative. The car won't downshift as aggressively when applying the brakes.

Try going to iHeartRadio first and let that get running, then go to Pandora. This usually clears the endless buffering/paused situation for me.

It certainly couldn't hurt to have an upholstery shop take a look at it. They can do some pretty incredible work. A lot cheaper than a new wheel.
