Just curious, after reading some of these articles, what would you early adopters like to see made available as either aftermarket goodies, or further options?

I have a couple small ones:

1) Replace the chassis and powertrain switches with either carbon fiber or milled aluminum (hate plastic switches). If they aren't available, I'll mill or mold some in CF myself. Black ceramic switches would be sexy too. Or flame polished titanium.

2) Alcantara steering wheel option. Love it on my Porsche - was told by Mac dealer that the option would add at least 3 months to my build date.

3) Carbon fiber rear deck lid frame (while at the Marin Concours d'Elegance I spoke with 3 other early buyers, and they all said they'd want this).

4) Spinning blinged out rims (just kidding).

i still dont think the plastic switches are going on the production car,rememeber all the cars in the mags are pp cars,and i did say to the guys at Dunsfold they looked cheap,and they told me the finished one would be metal,I will know tommorow at the Manchester opening as they have their first full prodution model on show.
lewis did what the special rims,but its not in his contract!!!!!!!!!!!

5. FULL inconel or titanium exhaust...........luv the milled/Ti switches idea!........also the CF rear widow surround and rear black plastic gives rear some elegance

Sport seats and harness. Might be difficult if there are no existing anchors for the harness in the tub? May require aftermarket harness bar or roll bar.

Front splitter
Clear side markers

Hooser R6 tires

That should do it.
