Check both keycards work and also check the emergency key at the bottom of the keycard is cut to the door lock. (its quite common to find an uncut blank) Also check the pop up headlamp washers both work, they become sticky and stop functioning causing an MOT failure if the tester is on the ball. Intermittent electrical gremlins seem to be normal, my cruise control worked when it felt like it and occassionaly the keycard would have to be removed and reinserted because it wasn't recognised 1st time around.

Edit.........tyres are bloody expensive as well.
