On my 1999 911 I would so much prefer the lighter weight and extra headroom of the sunroof delete. LSD and a better color would've been cool, but those things are easier to change than reskinning the roof.

Volvo: 17" wheels.  Not even sure if the 18" it was equipped with were optional or standard equipment, but I know the 17" wheels existed, so let's call it a maybe.

Mazda:  The '84 would have been nice to have had power steering.  I fixed that a month after I got it.  The '81 is basically perfect as is, within the constraints of what was optional at the time.

I'd add a passenger seat that raises and lowers. It doesn't and my 4'11" wife gets car sick at the stock seat height. I'm looking to see if a drivers seat from a right hand drive car can be bought/installed. No I won't get a pillow for her to sit on.
