Hmm I want to visit and see the seats, we'll see. Is it bucket seats themselves that hurt or replica ones? Who needs a rim of cigs from the PI. I think like 8 packets is like $5.
Marlboro Reds/Black, can't remember what else is there. I'll be back in 16 days.

I came from sport/premium seats and think my recaros are just as good. I don't have seat warmer anymore but oh well.

Someone chop their roof off! Like what Marvin said, as much as I love the functionality of my moonroof, I'd be able to part with it. At that point, I might as well go WB since I'll be messing with the metal anyways.

Bring me back a carton of Marlboro Black menthols (black/green case) if its cheaper than $10/pack. Some reps aren't that bad. I know some friends who has fake Bride seats in their car and the stitching is flawless. Can't decide what brand I really want but it's a necessity if you wanna grip and constantly feel all the vehicle dynamics.

Having these sit aside at my buddies shop is killing me instantly although it is going to be installed on Sunday. I just cannot wait for that to happen.
