. You know you could buy winter tires. 😁

If heaters are an issue get an after market plug in heater. Sparco's all day. We had a choice. We chose the Sparco. Worth every penny. Colors, it is a color choice. We are happy with the graphic and black. We have tri-coat outside but all black/dark gray interior. Nothing takes away from the carbon fiber and it is a subtle elegance as such. Some folks like the bling of the red dash or ice. I forsee grease finger prints and discoloration over time. Comfort, sorry for those that disagree but my husband and I couldn't be more different and we both love them. I do have a gel booster seat that I use sometimes but I am finding I really don't need it and see fine just lower the wheel.


I do not always move the seat back for my husband to get in. It kills him ). But in a nano second he pulls the lever and boom in position. Mechanical you have to wait for. So fewer things to break down and the Sparco back JUST NEVER GETS OLD. THEY ARE STUNNING. Without that the interior is just another fast car with less electronics unless you are comparing it with a 4C. Then the QV is a technology marvel

Despite there being no seat heaters, I find the alcantara doesn’t feel too cold unlike some materials.

Right the alcantara is nice. But winter tires? You've seen my thread right? 6 days and counting.

From what I know the Sparco seats are comfortable. We have both versions here.

I used to have an M3 with manual seats. Loved that too. Anything to save weight. Fortunately, my wife doesn't usually drive my car. If she did, it is an easy adjustment. The family car is the Lexus and that has memory which comes in handy.


I guess my a*s runs hot as I didn't use my heated seats when I lived in PA for more than 5 minutes as I find heated seats uncomfortable. Here in the South, I don't use them at all especially since my garage never goes below 50 degrees. They are useful for when you pick up a pizza to help keep it warm for that drive home.

My car is Italian and my motorcycle German
