I drive Punto Evo Sports and miss the following features:

1) Bluetooth music streaming. Right now I need to connect the usb cable to play songs through an iphone. Andriod isn't supported.

2) A few more cubby holes would have been welcomed.

3) Boot open button in the flip key.

Here are my rides and what I miss:

2015 Volvo V40 cc

1. Android Auto (shall be rectifying this soon with the dealer fitted Android HU option)
2. Adjustable ride height (the car is low for india even though the cross country is the jacked up variant, suspension tuning is great though)
3. Auto high beam assist (Missing in the petrol variant, present in the diesel)
4. Paddle shifters (Not really a necessity as I never felt the need for this. The box is in the right gear always)

2016 Polo TSI

1. Paddle shifters (aka GTI steering wheel upgrade)
2. Stiffer suspension and sway bars (coilovers can fix this)
3. Better brakes (tarox g88 rotors will do)
4. Better headlamps (wish I could buy a pair of volvo headlamps and put them in this)
5. More legroom for rear passengers

For my 2014 Polo GT TSI, I pine for the following which greatly adds to the driving experience but strangely features in chauffeur driven luxury cars

1) Height adjustable front passenger seat
2) Extendable under thigh support
3) Soft padded door pads and soft touch plastics
as far as I can reach
4) Adjustable center armrest
5) Frameless auto-dimming IVRMs

Being a non-DIY person (as yet), I miss quite badly a boot-light and integrated navigation too.

Maruti WagonR Lxi (old model)

1. ABS
2. Power Windows
3. Factory fitted ICE
4. Bigger tyres
5. Stronger bodyshell
6. Better headlamps
7. Electric ORVM

The list kind of goes on but given this is a WagonR how much more can one expect.

A fair-enough all-rounder which can handle the city with ease and just-manager on highways with good FE so I guess will be the ride for a few years to come (especially with lack of Vitamin-M and rising car prices)

Honda Civic 2013 wish list

1. Adaptive cruise control
2. Auto braking
3. Lane sensing

All these features are now available in current generation of Civics. These features make life so much easy, especially when travelling on long drives in US, where it gets boring and attention tends to dim over long stretches.

Hey nice thread!

I have 2 cars in my stable. Linea Tjet (emotion) and Nano XT.

Both bought after reading through team bhp official reviews and some amazing ownership reviews. I have no issues as they meet all the points that I was looking for when I bought them at respective price points. Still if I have to nitpick, here goes....

Tjet
I wish it had more powerful headlights. The stock ones do not really illuminate the highway as much as I would like to.

Nano
Wish they gave it a powerful horn. It is a blessing to drive in city but given the traffic, the stock horn sounds too meek.

On a lighter note,
I would like to have some device outside of my car which can help shove rowdy and rash 2 wheeler drivers who cut across your path like they own the road and carry a "I don't care a damn" attitude!
