Christmas tree carrier.

Found out with the front seat up you can get a 7' tree in the MW, therefore with the front seat folded that means you can possibly get a 9' tree in the MW

Not to mention the "Secret" menus sticky with "Secret" being the operative word - as they are NOT in the book!

re: Stilo Hidden Features

Found another one....

If you unlock the car, but don't open any of the doors/boot, after a certain amount of time, it locks itself again!

re: Stilo Hidden Features

Just found out the rear arm rest opens up and reveals a hidden compartment inside... and no i dont mean the boot lol it opens up just like the front armrest and is held shut via magnets. Other than the cup holders i thought id found all the hidden features.

Hey ho

Nope, mines a 1.6 active and has the underseat draw. I think it was standard with earlier models and dropped from lower spec cars at a latter date.

The feature i like is when u remove your key the interiour light comes on even with the door shut.
Another feature which i activated when i got the car was the auto door lock when pulling away. Nice anti jacking device.

Thing i hate is the mp3 player comes on everytime you start, you can set it to ignore ignition but i know the wife would leave it on.

re: Stilo Hidden Features

now what isnt a feature but i thing very thoughtful, is when you use the windscreen washer (pulling the wiper stalk) it'll do 3 wipes, then another one after a few seconds. sorts out the 'dribbles' so you dont have to.

very basic i know, and some other cars probably do it too, but i just thought its brilliantly thought

re: Stilo Hidden Features

The folding front passenger seat doubles up as a really good changing table for the baby when out and about. Also the clips in the spare wheel bay designed to hold a warning triangle.

re: Stilo Hidden Features

Will it open the Sunroof and the blind bit too if I hold the button or just the actual sunroof? That's a cool feature even if it isn't both

Exactly that. If in the event of an accident the automatic fuel delivery cut-off is activated, pressing this button will reset it.

Pressing it whilst everything is working ok has no effect.
