    Name the one option you wish you had..?

    Whats the one option you wish you had on your car?
    Me personally, driving through traffic with the weather as it is I wish I had auto wipers as mine are either too fast when I stop or too slow when you go...

    The flappy panel gear shift thing, although a friend of mine has it and kepts breaking his nails i have advised wearing gloves, although with shorter nails its easier to self pick a meal whilst driving, if you get my drift

    Does anyone else suffer with this or should he just get his nails cut

    Has to be Cruise Control ......... even my Navara D40 had it fitted as standard. I did ask the dealer if I get get it retro fitted to my car but was told it wasn't possible.

    I have a black roof lining fitted to my car, is it not a standard fit item? (just seen the post above)

    For all those who posted cruise, that is possibly the easiest retro-fit around, provided you have a drive-by-wire throttle,which basically means from about 1999 onwards.

    If you want to DIY it, you can buy the kit from VAGParts:

    https://sslrelay.com/s74326199.onean...dex.shopscript

    If, like me, you like to leave it the people who know what they're doing. try here:

    http://www.fontain.co.uk/stocklist-i...sp?itemtype=31
    They retro-fitted cruise to my B5 2.8 Quattro in 2005. Then when I bought my current B6 2.4SE from them this year, they installed it before I collected it.

    I've always thought that myself.

    Personally I think I'd opt for the sunroof.

    it is easy to fit the optional extra's AFTER buying the car without them?

    eg fitting heated seats, black roof lining, centre armrest from a scrapper, bumpers etc...

    thats not too bad at all - only problem is that mines a 5 door so second hand interiors are rare to say the least

    The first thing I missed was cruise control I retrofitted that cheaper than the option cost.
    So I guess it has to be the sunroof my last Merc had one and I miss it now.

    It's a tough call between auto-dimming rear view mirror and auto-wipers. Why were auto wipers not standard on A3s? They were on my X-reg Pug 306 FFS!

    I think I'll go with the auto-dimming rear view mirror, what with all the driving-in-the-dark I'm doing at this time of year.

    Front fog lights. These aren't standard on the 8P SE and the front end of my Sportback would definitely benefit from them!

    Have already sourced the correct light switch but the fogs themselves fetch silly money on eBay so I'll have to wait for a while.

    I have this, its not an option i saw on the list?

    I have all the options I wanted, i ordered them with the car, the only thing I owuld like to have had was the DVD sat nav, but its cheaper to DIY it.

    I love the interior light pack and the self dimming mirror...

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.
