    Not really one for gadgets or comfort tbh, Would much rather have an uncomforatble car with zero electrics, thats fast, sounds the tits, and is full of character.

    All new cars are awful things.

    This, but since I bought a **** car what's not fast, doesn't sound nice and has less character than a brick, I needed to get a decent CD player lol

    Haha, nice.. Tbh I'd say that's the only thing I've ever gone out of my way to improve in a car, regardless of age. Audio quality. Every car gets a sub/amp/speakers/headunit treatment..

    Electric windows and central locking. Both basic but make a huge difference.

    I'd like keyless entry/start but I've never had it...

    Surprised no one's mentioned power steering.

    The only ones i'd hate to be without are servo assisted brakes and some form of stereo / radio.
    If it never had air con a sunroof would be a must have as well

    I think it would be my climate control and remote central locking. Would be electric windows but I don't normally use them now because I have climate control

    My seat is as far back and down as it goes, I might as well be sitting on the rear bench lol

    I don't think I could handle Perspex windows and their tiny openings, I can't think of anything else tbh.

    Had car without electric windows
    Drive with and without power steering - doesnt bother me
    Plenty of time without any audio.
    Central locking is easy enough to live without
