Picked up my new Ti Sport a little over a week ago with everything but the drivers assistance nannies loaded on it, and I'm 99% in love with it. There are a few querks that I'm finding, but overall it's great.

Gripe #1, when the stop / start is active, it momentarily powers off the 12v socket every time it re-starts at a light (I prefer a socket USB charger since my phones tries to connect via USB every time it is plugged into the built in USB port), this makes my phone "ding", very annoying when listening to Bluetooth.

Gripe #2, the parking sensor doesn't stop beeping when the car is put in Park, very annoying after I pull into a spot or the garage

Gripe #3, the subwoofer is a joke (seems a common problem for all Harmon Karden systems, it's the same in my BMW), it's going to have to be replaced

Gripe #4, despite the manual claiming the center navigation dial can be drawn on with your finger, It doesn't appear to do anything at all, though I don't really care

Gripe #5, I can't locate any source for all weather floor mats yet.

1) this is strange, need to investigate, the power source is indipendent from S&S
2) I agree with you 100%
3) hihihi, its a little paper toy, not a sub
4) explain better please
5) same status in Italy, no source

Welcome on Stelvio indeed

I put in a request to them the day I ordered mine, though I didn't get a response from them like you did... I saw on another thread some companies have some cheap options, but from the pictures it looks like something I could buy at home depot on a roll and trace my current mats to cut out.:sad

1) I think it cuts power to all accessories when the engine starts. I noticed last night driving home in the rain that the wiper stops mid wipe for the start as well.
2) going to talk to the dealer and see if that's something they can change (lets hope)
3) may swing by a car audio place tonight to look into replacing the junk
4) it clearly says in the owners manual (yes I read the manual :eek) that the top of the navigation controller is a touch panel that can be used for various gestures, including drawing letters for searching for contacts from your phone, except that it doesn't seem to actually be a touch panel at all

It's only a simple joistick without any touch surface, only turn, click and left right up & down

that's certainly how it operates, I'm just saying that the manual says it should operate differently, not that the difference matters to me. Seems the manuals were written before the vehicle specs were finalized, I noticed a few things that seemed to imply that when reading through it.
