Congrats. Waiting for my Basalt Black, with red/back interior cab. What options did you order? Must haves for me outside of factory....Bel Stir radar, laser interceptor and Smart Top is a must for the Cab.

Please provide details on all three. Why is the bel stir radar superior, is the laser interceptor integrated with that?
What is the smart top?

The Bel and Escort are almost identical, but the two pluses for the Bel is that you can segment the Ka band and turn off parts where radar guns don't operate, also the are invisible to radar detector detectors. If you get the 9500ci I would get the red display so it matches your interior. I prefer using laser interceptor over the escort shifters, I believe they perform better, but they do not integrate with the Bel/Escort.

Smart top is a control module for your convertible top so you can operate the top via the key fob. It also gives you 1 touch operation of the top and wind deflector with the buttons in the center stack. You can also program window position when opening and closing the top as well. It's probably the best $400 mod that you can buy for the Cab.

Here in uk/europe we get the cab roof remote opener as standardůbut yes the smart top is a must have..dont understand why its not on US imported cars must be some safety standard you guys have thereůi know a few years ago a child lost half his hand in an audi convertible that had the remote drop roof..

Was offered a March build on a Turbo S Cab. Are people seeing more allocations for cabs now?

Here in Canada - there are 5 or 6 units (unsold) available on three dealer web-sites. I am suspect that there is resistance at the $ 200K+ price point...big number here in Canada for any car let alone one that is typically driven only 8 months a year - on weekends....OH and to the original OP - ventilated seats are a must have.

Got the call from the dealer today. No, not that one yet. My car is built and awaiting transport to the port in Germany. Two months to go.
