Here are a few tips for the C5 owners and secrets that you may not be aware of:
1.  You can put your key in the driver's door and turn it twice towards the front to unlock the passenger door and a third time to pop the trunk.
2.  You can pop the trunk and also pop the gas cap cover by pulling on metal lines hidden in the back.
3.  All of the option codes are in the glove box.
4.  Tire inflation recommended pressures are on the drivers door.
5.  If you leave your turn signal on, in about a minute it will start to ding loud enough to let you know that you have old timer's disease.
6.  You can reset the oil life by pumping the gas pedal 3 times (but not with the engine running).
7.  Hold down the reset button while on one of the trip odometers and it changes that reading to the miles you've traveled since last starting the engine.   
8.  Side-view mirrors can twist both forward and backward decreasing the chance of damage if struck.
9.  If you turn on the headlights, then go to the parking position, the lamps remain up but the headlights are not left on.
10.  If you have the passive entry feature: If you lock your keys in the car, wait a few minutes and then shake the car.  The car will unlock.
11.  You can eject the CD from the in-dash player without turning on any power.
12.  The cruise will disengage if you purposely make sharp side to side turns while cruising at say 60-80 mph.
13.  When the engine is shut off, you can get the odometer reading by turning on the parking lights.
14.  You can program setting #3 (both memory buttons at once) in the seat memory to run the seat back and steering wheel forward for getting in/out of the car with the engine running.
15.  If you hate day light running lights you can pull the e-brake one click and they go off.  Cool
