I'm with ThrillKill. The rear sunshade never gets used except for my 13 year old Niece. She likes to show her friends what "nice cars" have in them. I do use the rear head rest retractor button thing. I usually keep them down.

As for misused items - the ashtray is a lunch money holder, the trunk is a stereo rack and the spedometer does nothing more than tease me about how fast I "could" be driving.

Oh - the number 3 on my seat memory. The engineers thought I'd actually let someone else drive it? (#1 is everyday relaxed driving / #2 is Hwy 1 racing position)

In my 1995 E300D, I never use my rear headrest "popdown" button. Not quite sure what the point is.

In my 1985 300TDT, I never use the cargo cover.

I use that all the time.

I've never used the manual sunroof crank in the trunk.

The function on the remote to close all the windows at once. I didn't know I had the option until my 13 year old showed me how it worked!

the horn. it is impolite to use it here in adelaide. besides, the stock horn sounds wimpy and no point changing it since i really haven't had a need for it.

I never use the lighter in my car. (I use the socket to charge my phone)

The charcoal filter has been used by me a total of 3-4 times.

Also the headrest button on the dash never gets used.

The thing that adjusts the lights for weight in the boot or towing I have never used.

My spare is still brand new, along with the tool kit and 1st aid kit. (thank God)

I have never used my stereo remote or the media stick option.

I use my bluetooth car phone on occasion (under 10 times)

I hardly use any of the stuff on my car.
