Bought our White 2009 SE for $26,300 OTD with the 0% apr 36 month financing last week. The only extra options it came with were the cargo mat, heavy duty floor mats & an ipod adapter. Love it so far though coming from a Volvo XC90, some minor features could have been done slightly better - e.g. roof light buttons should have had a more solid feel. Love the many small areas to store misc things like coins or other minor items.
Have connected my iPhone and can get to control music through the steering controls or radio buttons but can't figure out how to stop/pause a track. Does anyone have a clue? I can go back/forward to the next track but still no sure how to stop or pause a track or what button to use for that. If I turn off the radio and then back on again, that will start the track from the beginning and not pause it. Thanks for any suggestions.

Ok please ignore my last post. Turning off the power button on the radio does halt the track at where it last was. So it essentially works like a pause button.
I now have to figure out how the rear door locks can be disabled with the child safety switch on the driver's door. The instruction manual says turning on the switch (light turns yellow) on the driver's door should de-activate the rear power window controls and the rear door locks. This is a neat feature if you have small kids in the back. I tried it, the rear power windows are disabled and the kids are unable to open/close them, but the door locks still work, i.e. they can open the doors themselves.
I would have wanted this work rather than having to use the child safety locks on the sides of the doors whereby doors cannot be opened from the inside any longer. If someone has been successful in controling the rear door locks through the central safety switch, please share.

Have driven a few at work and I like these...nice to sit a few inches higher and the ingress/egress is just to slide over, perfect for folks like me with spinal issues. Might check out a used one I saw at the local BMW store as it is a nicely equipped SE model in that red color that is really stunning! Could be just the one!
