    1]i think you mean challenge grills ? i agree the rear panel's a must have

    2]shields are nice but were an 800 option -you can buy aftermkt pair for 150

    3] sport seats are comfy and look fab but again they were an expensive option [3.5k] so quite rare

    4] xenons were standard after '01 i think

    5] sports exhaust is a MUST- standard one is pants

    Stradale grills front & rear ( A must for me) Challenge Grills - Yes 1K
    Shields ? Yoshi Shields - budget on 200
    Sports seats are these comfy on long journeys? 2K
    Xenons again a must i think - Really? How often will you drive a Ferrari during the night? In the last x'000 miles, I've never driven the Strad during the evening, and prior to that I've only ever driven my 360 spider once in 7,000 miles during the evening and that was on the second day of owning it.

    Exhaust - A must - budget for 1,700 inc fitting
    Wheels - again, budget 2,500
    Lower the car - personally drop the car 1.5 inches by a professional dealer - budget 300
    Calipers - get the right colour - budget 300

    Without the Xenons, if you get a 360 without any of the above, suggest you budget to spend another 8K

    However, get a 360 with all of the above and the cars priced at 50K - you've got a bargain

    Wheels why should i need to budget for new wheels whats wrong with the originals?

    I see your point on the xenons will only be used on nice days.
    Calipers what is the right colour.
    Are sports seats a must or are the regular just as good?
    so if the car doesnt have shields which most do from what i can see its worth putting them on?

    Sports seats not only look great,I find them far more comfortable than the standard seats.They do come in different sizes,so sit in them first,if they dont fit ,that car aint for you.

    If the seats fit the piemeister it is a one off

    if you're happy with oem wheels, leave em alone ! most calipers are colour coded to body colour , tho blk body /yellow calipers are popular. as i said, sport seats are an expensive option so quite rare. they do come up on ebay, 2k or around that. the standard seats are electric, sports seats not . shields can be bought from ebay, approx 150-200
