Milltek looks nice.

I also wonder why we are only told to make the full leather seats with heaters and not the partial leather ones.. but it's not our call.

edit: Word everything on that list was full of winsauce 90's style

Could always get it aftermarket and get shop to install it for u. Might be extra option web buying vehicle too. I think we have installed them in Lincoln's/ford for around $500?

The ATS is the only real one to me. Next generation Regal if it goes on the alpha platform with the ATS.

I could, wonder what that will do with the new airbag sensors that adjust based on weight, etc. I know Roush and Recaro both have to recalibrate when changes are made to a seat.

It's not so much weight sensitive airbags at all. We calibrate them to know what a set weight is like (Ie Mustang is 54lbs or something) And then when that weight is reached it turns on the bag. If it's under that weight the bag remains off. Just a simple passenger occupant sensor kinda deal (at least to my knowledge that's how it works).

But yes Ford is very critical of the system so if any tweaks are made generally they want it recaled
