My feelings are very similar to Ben's. I noticed the "over-revving" when I test drove the car, and with our car, too. But I think I've learned to circumvent it, without thinking about it. I didn't even know there were grab handles - I'll have a gander tomorrow.
I've had the cruise control working, and it seems pretty good. I thought it might struggle up long M-way hills. The proof of that pudding will be climbing up towards Yorkshire on the M62, which we haven't done yet. I used to have a Volvo 345 automatic, and found it would JUST hold 70 up that hill, with nothing to spare. Cars are more powerful these days, and I expect the 3 will be OK.
I found the operation of the door handles a bit puzzling for a while, but now I know what to expect.
It's a jolly nice car. My gripe is that there's only one remote key/fob (plus a further ordinary key). SWMBO and I will just have to share.

Reason: usual mistakes!
