Barra "Interior Appointments"

Does anyone know if any of these sorts of features will be available in any model Barra - my Wife and I are considering "sharing" the next car for a while....
Dual climate control (Driver and Passenger)
"Memorys" on the drivers seat linked to individual keys.
The "lectric pedals" feature - will there be memorys and will the memorys be "linked" to individual keys ?
Illuminated drivers side vanity mirror on sunvisor (this is a Prerequisite - no mirror, no sale, .........)
Any other features likely to help out with dual drivers ? The "other" Brand seems to cater well with the Calais and CV8, but I'm guessing (hoping !) we'll get a better trade on the Wifes Cougar at a Ford dealer.
Thanks

You can take your ergonomically designed, space age, computer controlled, 4 door, cup holding map lighted split double wishbone split fold down retractable cargo covered moon roof piece of transportation and keep it. For I have felt the thunder. And I know the difference!!

Without seeing full spec sheets, I would say the Fairmont Ghia will have most of these features and I think the sat nav is DVD based for more info storage and greater speed.

1. The dual climate is available on Ghia.
2. The memory 6 way power seats and mirors are available on Ghia but I am not sure if they are keyed.
3. The electric pedals are standard on Ghia and optional on others.
4. Son't know about the illuminated vanity mirror on the drivers side!

Cheers

There are 3 memories as well as a memory for the mirror dipping. :)

The buttons for these are located on the base of the seat at the side. I believe they are tied into the remote control.

Edit: Sorry, I meant 5 memories...2 are via the remote control and three are manual settings on buttons on the drivers seat.

thanks guys - should be worth waiting for a good look then.
I think the "mirror dipping" is the exterior mirror so you can see what your just about to hit ! ??
