1.6 turbo
9 speed auto in all models - the 6AT is just outdated, clunky, and slow to shift compared to more modern transmissions.
Adaptive cruise control (I think this is coming on the Premier for 2019?)

Someone will eventually. Gen1 are available and with the pending model changes for 2019, I would think it won't be long for head and tail light options.

Mine would be a new set of 18" wheels and a tune.
Wheels are doable at some point in the future, but with a lifetime powertrain warranty to consider, the tune is not.
"Lifetime" powertrain warranty how did you swing that?
As far as the tune goes, I have been extensively talking to Trifecta. they have a tune that they claim does not alter your ECU write count and can be returned to complete stock should warranty work be needed.
I've looked very hard and I can't find anyone to dispute that fact.I have even seen some confirmations.
I'm thinking of going with them once I use up my free oil changes from the dealer.

So basically if you put 18 inch rims on it then it will void your power train warranty?
and Lifetime??? want to know how you managed that one. i think mines like 50.000 miles or something like that.
Plus they are just rims. if you need work done put the stock ones back on.

It's something that my dealer offers with purchase. As long as maintenance schedule is followed, they will cover powertrain as long as I own it. There is another local dealer doing the same thing here in Cinti, but wouldn't match the price I ended up with.

You can actually in China, search the forum.

9 speed auto in all models - the 6AT is just outdated
Then there's the 7 speed double clutch in China. I would prefer that over hydra-matic.

2.0 turbo engine
+1, what's the point of the RS with just a body kit?!

My two cents:
- LED lights all over (OEM)
- GMPP Exhaust with tune, CAI with tune and warranty (they had there some conflicting information and withdrawn the CAI)
- Proper sports model in general

Yes Mine is only for 100,000 miles. I believe he was referring to the "Tune" voiding his warranty, not the rims.
Though should he have a Wheel bearing or brake caliper, ABS, go out during the "bumper to bumper 36,000 warranty" that could be a whole other story.

That is true I am currently looking at getting some rims for mine as well I just cant seem to decide on what color I want.

And I keep trying to search the forums for the aftermarket tail lights from china like Phantom suggested but I keep coming up empty handed.

Yeah I understand that it’s “labeled” as an economic car but it would be nice to have parts for those who would like to add them.

Me I’m looking forward to being able to swap out the lights. I’d like a pair of dual projector winjets.
A tune would be great.
