Two things:

1 - Someone already mentioned a HUD with more features. Like digital gauges...my wife might actually LOOK at 'em if they were dancing on the windshield, instead of waiting until the radiator explodes like Old Faithful.

2 - A cool high beam indicator (see avatar...)

Are you talking about when Cruise is on and set or just switched to the on position? You really wouldnt need one if you know your foot is off the pedal and your car is going 85 down the highway.

I really want someone to make a body kit for them. I just think a Bonnie with a kit would be sweet!

That would be fun to have in the car I would also like to have something that would get the slow drivers out of my way

A light that shows when you're automatic headlights are on, especially since the gauge brightness adjustment has a blank spot or two in ANY b'ville i've driven.

Yeah, that would be #3! My Silverado has one and it'* nice to see that the cruise has engaged.

I know this is lame, but I set the cruise on the 30 mph street that goes past my house. Set it at 32-33 mph. The speed limit got reduced to 30 a couple years ago and the road has the "feel" like the limit ought to be 40 mph. The fuzz (popo or cops for you folks not alive in the 70'*) knows this and they park 50 yards down the road from my house. Almost guaranteed they'll bust someone within 5 minutes (and I'd rather it not be me). Sometimes me & the dog will sit on the front porch and bet on how long it will take before some fool gets stopped. Dang mutt has cleaned me out more than once - I think I still owe him $17.50 from the last time we bet. How does he do it?

Carbonfiber trunks hoods and fenders. (I'd paint em)
Aluminum gas tanks
Titanium catbacks
1 piece headlights for 92-99
A simple clip on body kit for the 92-99 sse/i bodystyle.
-Mainly to get the face of the bumpers as low as the sides.
Affordable coil over kits with adjustible struts or adjustible shocks in general.
I realize all this stuff isn't really realistic but a guy can dream can't he?
