    I just hope they aren't as expensive as the optional white 20" are. I've managed to secure one of the 20 LEs coming to Australia and am trying to work out what to do for a spare or even a second set of wheels.

    We have so much coarse chip bitumen here that even the OEM Contis on my current FK8 picked up a lot so Cup 2s would be a nightmare. My current street wheels are a set of FK2 19x8.5 with Michelin PS4S and they are a lot better so chances are I'll keep those but a spare OEM LE wheel would be handy to have.

    We get both so only get a 20kg saving. Given where I live goes from - 8 to 44 Celsius the a/c will come in handy.

    No idea about the Japan spec but we may be the only RHD market with them both.

    Ahhh course it does get toasty down under! So is the rest just less sound deadening?

    Apparently 10kg sound deadening and 10kg wheels for the AUS spec. We might even get a rear wiper!

    On the UK one no speakers, no charging thingy, wiring loom is different, no usb, does the normal type R have a get you home space saver ? You just get the sealent with the LE, no elec mirror retract thingy.

    Our normal Type R only comes with a sealant, no space saver, and I suspect the LE will be the same.

    Mine will be a weekend only car but I'm actually likely to take it to a track once a year (not for lap records or to thrash it but just to stretch its legs) so the LogR function will be useful. I believe LogR doesn't work without the infotainment so I'm glad ours keeps it.
