Fourway electric windows & full leather seats I think; an electric sunroof with a wind deflector was standard on a GSi at a guess.
Thanks Tim

Funnily enough my Tourer doesn’t have a chrome wind deflector on the sunroof, but all my previous R8’s within sunroofs have.

The omission of the chrome wind deflector was a cost cutting move.

They must have cost all of about £5 each!

...Multiplied by 1 million car sales = £5 million in additional profit - not to be sneezed at. I'm sure motor manufacturers "penny pinch" on every part of a car as the impact on profits when all those little cost-cutting measures and sales volumes are combined together is huge.

Ha yes, fair point - the car was a consistently top seller in its heyday!

Been checking parts availability, doesn't look like you can get most of the coolant hoses for these unless I'm mistaken? Had a look under Concerto as well.
