    I just got back from a media event at Laguna Seca. Drove the snot out of lots of cars, including a nice little red 135.... While it was a blast to drive, one thing that surprised me is it was hard to get comfortable in the car... This one had a sunroof, and that took away some head space... So I had to lean the seats back so my helmet wasn't hitting the roof all the time.

    If you're planning on getting a one series for the track, skip the sunroof.

    I don't believe that is an option. Or rather, a delete option.

    That's really too bad....

    I didn't have much seat time, but for me it might be a deal breaker. If you are thinking about the car and do some track stuff, take your helmet to see if you fit.

    If you do that, you may want to do it at a different dealer than you would actually buy the car from. I could just imagine the reaction from the Service Manager when he sees somebody sitting in the car with a helmet on. Tell me he won't remember THAT the first time you bring the car in for service!!

    :D
