No negatives at all. If there is one i had to think hard about, it would be washing it by hand. I tend to do that anyway so not a big deal.

I just wanted a new racecar, and was not driving it all that much (800 total miles the last year I had it)

The Sport Buckets dont need any heat. They wrap around you. You learn how to get in and out of the car easliy. It's not an issue after a few days of ownership. If you are buying the car with the regular sport seats, knock thousands off the price. You will be missing out on the real purpose of this car going with the regular sport seats.
