    Thanks, I went for the standard seats. The buckets aren't practical, well for me anyway. I'm happy with the spec, but as you will have read in other threads, the iPod console is a little bit lame and overpriced. A sunroof would have been nice for a bit more light in the cabin, but you have to stop somewhere or the price gets out of hand very quickly. What spec have you chosen so far?

    I am on a price limit

    ICE Silver
    2 tone leather seats (seem more comfortable than standard or is it just me?)
    BOSE
    Flat bottom steering wheel
    Interior light pack
    Front arm rest
    Tyre pressure monitor
    Ipod adaptor (May not bother)

    Anything else a must have ??

    Coming from a Honda Integra Type R so I hope the S3 will be a good move was also considering the R32

    The phone prep (in the armrest) is very good but pricey and you may want to consider electric lumbar too. Oh and when you have some cash in the bank, Revo!!

    The white/black 2 tone seats can get grubby looking.
    Add the lumbar support.
    The armrest can get in the way, the hand brake lever can hit it when you pull it on.
    Auto lights and wipers?
    My dealer said that the tyre pressure monitor can be a nuisance, just check the tyres regularly.
    I had a sunroof, excellent.
    Also the ipod connection, never used, should have had the interior light pack instead!
    I stuck with the round steering wheel, it goes just as fast!!

    Cheers, prt

    The standard seats have the golfball dimple in the base, I don't think the two tone seats do though.
