Without a shadow of doubt the most expensive accessory I have in every car I have ever owned is the person who keeps the passenger seat warm - she costs bloody fortune!

Can I ask who you got to do it?
No problem. But I don't know its any use to you. You don't mention your location, but I guess it UK..

The man who does this for me is located in the Netherlands, just north of Zwolle..

I did go back for the F-Pace parts, after they did the F-Type. That says enough I guess.

Would you mind adding a rough indication of your location ? Even "USA" "CA" , "UK" would be a clue.

Sorry, UK.

There was a good place near me till last year, they've been shut since pandemic started. Hoping they'll re-open.

Often the shop is closed, but you can contact them. Send an email and wait.. :idea:

I disagree with the original post (just); the most outrageously-priced accessory is the fuel we have to put in the tank in the UK. Almost all of it (80%+) is tax of some form or other, meaning the more we drive our cars, the more we contribute to the electric "revolution" in transport. QED: if you want to keep your F-Type, don't be tempted to put fuel in it, haha!

I think car tax runs it a pretty close second. But of course, that leads to not unexpected consequences - if anyone thinks I'm going to pay all that tax and then leave it on my drive and get on a smelly bus, they're deluded! ;)
