  3. clear side markers
You the members please tell me what you want to see



Regards

Clear Sides, and pre-modded antenna (SL / 170) would be awesome, as well as selling the '09 antenna if possible. It works great without mods, evidently.

Filters sounds like a good idea as well. Zanio or other cleaners would be nice, but don't know that there would be a lot of benefit, as I can order their stuff of their site.

Brake Light flasher mods, LED light's, etc would seem to be good items as well. My take is anything that's hard to find or needs to be mod'ed would be good target items. I would have paid a premium for example - on my smarttop if it had come with an add-a-circuit. Little value adds like that mean a lot to me.

selling Zanio is out of the question, Sal Zanio is a nice guy and has given the site many products as give aways for members but as he puts it he does not want to compete against his own online store

Yeah, he is a nice guy, and as I said, no reason to compete - it's easy to order online direct from him..

In addition to the items already listed, a lot of people ask for the AMG style spoiler, OEM windblocker, AMG style aerofins, aluminum door pins.

I would buy the cabin filter from the store if you had them.

I think all the items you mentioned would rule, along with:

1) SmartTop module (even though I already own it personally)
2) LSD upgrade(s)
3) Strut Bar(s)
4) Wheels, possibly?
5) A replacement center console that actually works well would be awesome!!

All those things would be great, very hard to find them here in NZ, except Green Filters. Found nothing about the Smarttop here at all.
