So now having seroius FOMO having started this thread and seen so many cars bought whilst I am yet to find one !

Feels like at least one of my Red Lines on spec will need to go.

There don’t seem to be that many cars around with suspension lift. Anyone have a view as to how strictly necessary it is ? Not sure how to find nose overhang stats to compare to other cars I have had.

My 458 Spider doesn't have it, and doesn't need it as they have plenty of clearance and a short nose. My F12 does and absolutely needs it due to the long nose. IMO of course.

I am down to 2 cars
Similar price age and mileage
Comes down to choice of :

1 - suspension lift and racing seats , some interior carbon not all , no hi power hi fi

Or

2 - no lift , Daytona seats , full interior carbon and high power hifi

All other spec similar

Any pearls of wisdom from this learned group to help break the deadlock??

Daytona Seats would swing it for me. They were one of the favourite things about my 599.

While I love the carbon race seats in the 458/488, Daytona seats would suit the F12. And more carbon and the hi power stereo (a lovely thing to have) would also put me in the Daytona seated car.

i think for a V12 GT car the Daytona seats are a little more appropriate than fixed carbon buckets, lovely though they are. with a 458/488 the opposite would apply. I found the lift pretty useful on my F12. hi-fi no idea, it's got a V12 engine to listen to....

Carbon seats are super comfortable. Loved the comment re the booster cushion for the Mrs. I did the same so my good lady could drive it. Serious comment now, truly great car and so suited to long range schleps. Changed to McLaren 570 GT, not the best move I’ve made!

I’d go for the carbon seats - make sure they are comfortable for you though
I prefer no interior carbon, if it has some it depends on if it still looks cohesive

best looking car ever built why Oynx and other custumizers feel the need to mess with this car is beyond me
