Im having a hard time deciding on the seats
Cross Leather: Punch Carbon Black OR Leather: Lounge Satellite Gray??????

I think the Grey looks super and a little more elegant but as keeping them clean scares me.

I have inclosed a few pics of the build and a took a screen grab off a video that shows the electric blue in real time to get a feel of the true color with the black roof and added black strips and darken the tail lights as I will end up modifying later.

Please give me your feed back as far as the build and seats go.

Forget the seats and add the Sport Suspension.
I added the Dynamic Damper Control instead of the sport Suspension whats the difference?
The DDC adjusts the rate on the shocks. You can set it to ride firmer, which improves handling somewhat while making the suspension feels a bit harsher. If your kidneys object, you can set to ride softer. This is a big benefit for people who drive on marginal roads.

The Sport Suspension has stiffer springs, stiffer sway bars, and stiffer shocks. It's stiffer, in other words. The car handles much better and truly feels like it is on rails. You can't turn this off. My car has SS and I absolutely love it. The downside is you will feel every bump in the road, though in my case I don't mind because it reminds me that I'm driving a performance car and not a Buick.

If you don't care that much about handling, then the DDC is probably the way to go. If you want to extract that last bit of go-cart from your MINI, go for the Sports Suspension.

Whichever way you go, it'll be a great car that is more fun to drive than just about anything.
