Control of rear seat air vents: it's turned on from the main panel (bottom right icon in lower center cluster pic). The vents are traditionally placed in the arm rest. In he arm rest pic you can see the 2 USB ports included in the premium package for the back seat occupants IMG_2098.JPG IMG_2099.JPG .

❑ Do wheel buttons pushin also? Yes, although I'm not sure what that action facilitates. Could just be for future enhancements. The left is primarily audio. Volume is on the scroll wheel and left/right changes tracks. The wheels control other items like mirrors & steering wheel position when in those menus.

Do the wheels have clicky scrolling or smooth scrolling?

FWIW, On the Model X, when you roll the wheel you adjust whatever function the wheel is set to (LCD brightness, temp, volume, etc. when you push and hold, you will likely see a menu pop up on the screen for the functions that you can assign to the scroll wheel.

Also, on the Model X, if you push and hold both scroll wheels for several seconds, you soft reboot the computer in case there is a glitch or something.

Curious about HD radio on FM. In Austin it looks like 93.3, 95.5, 96.7, 100.7, 102.3, 103.5 all have HD2/3 subchannels.
