Outside if these kinda nitpicking things I love the car.

I've heard this complaint from customers. I think it's more of "what you are used to" than anything. You would have to reach forward to roll the dimmer switch to do it(more work, I think, than....) or you reach up for the cabin lights. You'd go through all the trouble of making a new switch instead of just using the other hand?

It's random with me. I know of the delay and usually don't have an issue; but, it's done that to me on every model. I've just programmed myself to "not be in hurry" opening the doors. Your issue makes me wonder if they have changed something.
