I did want a cup but at the time I was buying there were no decent ones around. However now that I have my 3.0 lt V6 GTV (Couldn't walk away from it as it was in such good condition with just over 30,000 miles) I really don't see what the fuss is about.
The side grills, the colour and the skirts? I much prefer my full leather momo seats as a pose to those half leather cup seats.
I love the colour of mine, and as for side grills and skirts, I could buy them if I wanted to.
Mine already came with the spoiler and teledials, so I started off looking for the cup, as to me it was the ultimate GTV, but I don't feel like I've stepped down in anyway with my GTV
