    Just picked the car up. Got a deal I couldn't refuse to upgrade my 2011 Two to a 2012 Three with solar roof. Tonight as I was driving home I noticed that the illuminated buttons on the steering wheel were very dim. Is there a way to adjust them? I can adjust the dash lights.

    I think the only thing that I don't like about the car is the lack of reference lines on the backup camera. Everything else is great. I don't think I'll ever use entune or even activate it. I've got the same stuff on the iphone pretty much with bluetooth.

    The wheel LEDs seem to be dim on all current models and the brightness is not adjustable.

    Yes, a peeve. There's no reason we can't adjust the brightness of everything, then adjust overall brightness with a little knob somewhere.... I would like to shut off the pointless "drive selector" spotlight! ...and adjust the green indicators such as "headlights on" and "cruise" to be somehat less glaring. I drive a dark horse.

    The Touch Tracer display compensates for the dim buttons.

    Yes. That is a cool feature, too. Lets me keep my head up and still not press the wrong buttons. I've never seen it before, though possibly other cars have it.
