    1. Analog fuel gauge, the digital one is worthless when there is less than 2 gallons in the tank.

    2. 12 gallon fuel tank so those of use with long commutes could fill up every three days instead of every two.

    I agree that this car has big potentials for an awesome trackday car. Just needs better suspension, wider tires, and some oomph.

    I would also want to include: short throw shifter, closer gear ratios (that 1st - 2nd gear change kills RPMs), and of course, a 6th gear.

    EDIT:
    Would also want a rear/center light and rear oh-sh!t handles.

    Add: satellite radio, rear dome light, passenger's side visor mirror, visors with extensions so they do something on the sides, storage drawer under passenger's seat, cubby above the glove box, compass, thermometer, better track selection when using USB memory stick for music, rear seat folding releases on the front side of the seat, yellow oil dipstick handle, rear seat door pockets

    Remove: rear spoiler, top half of the rear headrests so the seats can fold down without having to move the front ones or take the headrests off

    add heated mirrors in the US... I know I will be pissed once winter hits...also add a sub for some much needed bass. Haven't used bluetooth and don't see me using this feature in the near future. 454 big block would also be a nice option.haha

    I would like:

    - first and foremost, a much taller MT gearbox ( I have a 1.0L with European gearbox)
    or about 15% taller 5th gear leaving the other gears as they are. The difference between 4th and 5th is just much too small.

    - more durable seat material

    - more durable carpeting (more like the proven grey suzuki stuff)

    - more comfortable front seats ( The backs are unphysiologically shaped with lumbar support in a too high place, forcing my back to bow forward too much. I needed to see a physician because of severe prolonging back pain after a longer drive)

    - the front headrests should be a little further away from the head. To avoid constantly banging and touching it, I must bend my head forward, which causes cramps in the neck on long drives)

    - it would be nice to have at least a minimum of noise deading in doors, the roof and particularly on the rear panels. Without they are like tin drums.

    I'm with you on the headrests. The back of my head got banged so much I finally reversed the headrest. Hopefully it will still do it's job.
