    Newbie question. I was driving my MX the other night (first time I drove it at night) and when I put it on AP the dash where it shows the car staying within the lane was strobing multi color - it was very cool. However, since then I can not get it to do that again - any ideas?

    You probably triggered the rainbow road easter egg. Pulling the cruise control stalk 5 times in rapid succession turns this on/off.

    Turn up the volume on the radio next time you do this. You will get some cow bell :)

    Thanks for the response. I will have to give this a try next time.

    For background, it is an Easter egg referencing two things:

    1. Mario Kart rainbow road, the final most difficult level of the original game.

    2. More cow bells, which was a popular SNL skit.

    And I believe it's four pulls, not five. At least that's how it is on my MS.
