Question Standard and Additional Features Wishlist

What kind of features would you like to see standard on the Chevy Spark?

What kind of features would you like to see as an additional cost that it may not have?

I think its safe to say the basics:
-power windows/locks
-cruise/tilt
- A/C
- good MPG
- sunroof

Something that it may not have
- optional roof rack
- leather
- ground effects package
- HID
- command start

Default and to add...

I corresponded with Chevrolet UK and was able to obtain a 2010 Chevy Spark Owner's manual!

So I'm able to see what our British friends have on the Spark. One thing that surprised me is the 'spare tire' is an option. You get a repair kit in its place.
So I hope the North American version has a spare.
Here's my main concern with a repair kit:

1) The 'Goo' will render the tire unrepairable. It might temporarily fix the leak, but you'll have to buy a whole new tire.
2) Those special valve stems that monitor the pressure (TPMS) run the risk of getting that 'Goo' caked inside the sensor, rendering it in operational. Replacing one can cost up to around $100.

So a spare tire might actually save you money (and peace of mind), in the long run.

Another thing I REALLY want as an option is an in-dash navigation system like OnStar's "Destination Download". This would directly interface with the OnStar system & I believe it would be really awesome!
Here's a sample of "Destination Download" on the OnStar system:

I'd just like a clock on the Spark+
It's got electric windows, AC etc but no clock! WTF?

i think all versions should have a trip computer too, surely it doesn,t cost much to include one instead of having to fork out hundreds more.
