If everyone names one maybe not so obvious thing about the Cayenne this will be a great thread! Don't do an rtfm, this can be a fun great informative thread...... I'll start with:
You can press up (from behind the wheel) on the steering wheel controls too vs. the obvious pressing down....works both ways.

locking the doors

i will add one that we use often ... you can lock the doors with the key fob after you take out the keys even if the doors are open or the rear hatch is open .. once you close all the doors, it will lock itself right away. Is helpful given the range of the key fob and if you are carrying a lot of stuff out of the car but remember not to leave the key fob lying on the seat !!

There are a pair of buttons on the back of the steering wheel (opposite tiptronic controls) which turn on/off lighting on the multifunction wheel.

Car will not upshift automatically in manual mode with PSM OFF, but will with PSM ON
With Keyless entry and drive, you cannot turn the ignition clear off with the car not in PARK when using the dummy key
Under certain lock settings, one must push the rear hatch release button in the drivers door pocket for every time the rear hatch is to be accessed...I'll think of more.

If you are towing a trailer and the car is locked (alarmed), and the trailer electrical is unplugged, the alarm will go off.

there are probably a few people who didn't know that there's a switch in the glove compartment that, when switched on, diverts the AC keeping the glove compartment ice cold for beveridges or sandwhiches on long trips. Those crazy Germans!!

Merry Christmas....
