Optional Packages

Interior fabric was Scribble Black as standard, Scribble Red on the roadster, and Scribble Grey on the roadster-coupe were no cost options.  One person reports their Champagne Remix coloured car has Scribble Green, this might have been optional just for that car.

Safety Plus: Front fog lamps, electric adjustable heated door mirrors, side airbags
Sports: Spikeline alloy wheels , 3 spoke leather sports steering wheel with gear change paddles
Leather: Leather heated seats

The “Lights” package is really for countries (like Sweden) that require cars to be driven with the lights on during the day.  It’s unlikely to be found on a UK car.
