I always thought that making sure the tissue box was full was a part of every service!!!

--- always carry one. The need to blow the nose cannot be timetabled or predicted!

--- Never, never put it on the dashboard or the parcel shelf. Wouldn't be able to reach it on the parcel shelf, and I hate stuff on the dashboard as it slides around the reflection in the glass irritates me.

By the way: never put anything on the parcel shelf unless you don't mind being hit really hard by it during an emergency stop.

So how about adding to the list...


Parcel shelf!

LOL John. I guess it has something to do with aftermarket ICE.

Esteem_lover,

Stay away from those cars.They are white collared criminals.

They are part of large Multi Level Marketing gang.Their organisation name is Ocean.They belong to GoldQuest corporation.

Angry

I hate the cheap immitaitons of some random disney cartoon
characters hanging from the rear view mirror and once the car goes on a pothole or speed breaker, they make the most annoying sound that one could ever imagine..the "chun chu" sound!!

The second most irritating of them all, would be the music/sound/recording that you get to hear when a car is reversing!! O man i cant stand those!! According to me the only way that you can combat these threat to mankind, would be not having them in your car...

I am too allergy to that reverse horns. Some of them are so worst that we need to close our ears. Especially when the sound is in the basement parking or 1 level down to it

Give me a break. The OEM tail lamp assembly becomes an irritating accessory? It may irritate you but that does not make it an irritating accessory.

If you have autocop installed, and you press both Lock and Unlock buttons together on your remote, the alarm thing goes off which is the same as when someone fiddles with your car and sounds like a cheap hooter alarm.
Some people do that while driving the car to make it sound like a VIP car to make way.
Very irritating.
Even the normal hooters are irritating, except for ambulances.

@shankar.balan Mystery Spot in Santa Cruz, a 3-acre parcel in the redwood forests overlooking the coast where everything's askew. Gravity seems to go haywire. People don't stand straight up and down; they tilt. Some have speculated that aliens once landed here.

@esteem_lover They are into chain marketing!! Had seen it on my friends car too.

@shankar.balan Mystery spot is where a ball can go up an incline and you tend to stand slant etc etc. Basically here the gravity is really weird

This is not possible. When the key is in ON position, pressing the remote buttons has no effect on the security system.

I have tried this. Turned on the ignition and pressed the buttons but doors didnt unlock. Turn the key to Accessories (Acc) or off position and the system will work even with the key in the fob.... but not when in ON position.

The above example might be possible if the hooter is hard wired to function independently.
