Sport exhaust, unless you are looking to get an aftermarket exhaust afterwards.

Heated seats - godsend in fall/spring.

Wind deflector - keeps the wife happy.

Well my choice would be ventilated and heated seats, convenience package, light design package, sport design steering wheel, anti-dazzle mirrors, sport chrono.

I'm envious. You better share pics when you get this beast.

Sport Chrono
Power steering Plus (wife again "its so heavy")
20" carrera s painted in Platinum matt
heated seats
cruise control
Light design Pack...help on this one not sure what it does (wife says looks pretty in the pics)
Sports seat plus 2 way...again is the extra 14/18 way worth it?
sport design steering wheel..flappy paddles a must
Leather Int pack with centre console trim...hate the plastic ally lookalike
Bose
Porsche com management..

thought about carbon fibre but you have to stop some where..

I like having Sport Plus with PDK for the fastest shifts, if you plan on driving it like a manual the sport wheel with the paddle shift is another option I'm enjoying. Sport exhaust is nice as you can select when you want it to be louder but if you always want it to sound loud aftermarket is a better price offering.

The light design pack just adds mood lighting on the food well area and additional lights on the overhead console.
