Ordered 135

:headbang:Had another drive this morning. Loved it - again.

So got the final slot from the dealer for July production so should get delivery in September.

Have a few days to finalise the options but think I'm going with the sparkling graphite, black leather, brushed aluminium, logic 7 stereo, seat heaters. I was going to get CA but the dealer talked me out of it! Very nice guy and recommend him to anyone in Sydney. pm me if you want his name.

Also got the corporate discount which actually is pretty good. Free mats thrown in and free service for first 2 years. Ended up being $81300 on road which I think is cheap as chips. Pretty basic spec but I'm coming from a Nissan so it all feels pretty luxurious to me:smile:

Thanks to all on 1addicts for your help and advice on various decisions.:drinking:

So begins the wait.

Seat heaters because I'm used to them in the 350z and it was the one request from the missus. They are pretty nice on a cold winters morning. I know its strange though.

I am finding that floor heating is heating up the seats quite well. Not as instantaneous as the inbuilt seat heating, but it does get warm

I have seat heating on many of my previous cars (and two of my current cars). How many times have I used it? Other than on a TT Convertible, I have never used any of them. But I agree with Zuzu, absolute must in a vert. (unless you live in QLD!!)

Heated seats are great, you can keep warm and keep all your POWER! :biggrin: without running the AC.

I think Dodgy means the standard foot well heating. I find that even down here in Tassie, my seat is only uncomfortable for a short time when you first sit on it. The heat of ones ass quickly warms things up.:smile:
