If you got nothing to hide, then let them search. People can smell guilt, and the police are people.

I have a better sol'n. While your handing over your license/registration/insurance include a piece of paper with the bill of rights printed on it. Also take a piece of paper, pen or pencil, and start writing down the officers name, badge number, and if you can see it easily, the squad car number (you have the "right" to do that). Most likely they'll get the point that you know your rights and you intend to legally enforce them if necessary. They may rethink harrasing you. Heck, they might even obey the law for once. But always be curteous, it does go a long way to "help" you.
And now that I think of it, the cops don't tell you upfront that you are being videotaped and recorded for "training or quality assurance purposes", so why should they have all the fun? Keep a small voice recorder in your car at all times and if/when you get pulled over switch that baby on.
