I'll start:

3) No additional charge for metallic paint
Features cost money. Not sure this is realistic.

The control stalk cruise control is way more intuitive than any button system I've ever used. AFAIK, button systems also universally require some form of safety. E.g. on my old car, you had to arm the system with one button, then set it with another button before cruise would engage. There was a mandatory delay of at least one second between both button pushes to prevent accidental activation.
