You know, the thing you love about your vehicle but still never use or honestly even need. That thing you probably paid thousands extra for "just because".

Mine are the front/rear lockers on my Jeep (Rubicon). I don't do much "hardcore" wheeling anymore, especially in a new $40K vehicle. I didn't need them, I don't use them much even when I off-road but I grin every time I get in and see my "happy switch". I've gone looking for hills I normally wouldn't mess with just to have an excuse to use them.

What about you?

The built-in garage door opener. So pointless, yet so useful!

Not on my car but headlight washers. I think that's a feature you use once and forget about it

I can't think of anything on my cars that I don't use... maybe the plug port for an engine block heater...

The active aero rear spoiler on my car (911 turbo.) Over 75 mph, it raises up for extra downforce. Driving in traffic, it was always amusing to see other people and their reaction to it.

However, it was completely useless for me, I ended up swapping out the stock turbo spoiler for a fixed GT2 one, for even more downforce, all the time.

I didn't pay any extra for it though, it's standard on the Turbo cars.
