New Car Spec

Right chaps, if you were to spec up a new car what would you say your top three must haves would be?

You can ignore engine/power etc.

Thanks

spec'ing vs choosing?

choosing would have to have a real comfy driving position with pedals not weirdly offset.

spec'ing.
comfy height adjustable/heated seats
climate control - full climate that has vents for all windows/switches on heated screens etc
manual

In that case forget the touch screen :lol:

But more seriously, the one thing that is rubbish about my Seven is corrosion resistance. I wish someone would make a car like a Fisher Fury weighing 600Kg or so, but with a glass fibre monocoque chassis and ready to take the running gear straight from a Mk3 MX5.
