    Agreed. I have a mind to wait another year or two and pick up a used one.

    Have you guys driven it? I heard it kind of sucks in terms of driving feel/enjoyment. I don't expect it to be GT3-like but would hate a fast, numb car. I suppose it would all be cleared up with an involved test drive

    They are called heat insulated windscreens/windows and they as stated reflect heat, it's a fairly new option, so you would have to fit carbon/nano film and it comes in the same tint as your windscreen (clear).

    My new Benz has this from the factory. The only thing is you have to carefully place any RFID transmitters in the little cut out window provided, and even then, you have to pull close and slow to the receiver. This shows how well it actually works as I tried holding the RFID transmitter up to my window and it would not emit outside the vehicle.

    I have not. I've talked to 2 owners that love it. I'd be curious to see how it feels.

    Ive driven a few. People say this because the car is so easy to drive at what they assume is its limit. Truth is they aren't even close to the cars limit. And yes it's best you test drive one to understand.

    I'm a huge fan of black interiors. Haven't had any other color interior since 2000.

    You can't have heat/noise insulated windscreens and active cruise control or garage opener (can't remember which) on Porsches.

    Driving slowly to activate EZPASS and the like is something I learned the hard way.

    Hmm, that means my hardwired V1 wouldn't function properly either with this screen technology....

    If its hard-wired wouldn't the sensor be outside the cabin?

    Hardwired for the V1 just means it's powered with some hidden wiring instead of a coiled cable plugged into the cigarette lighter.
