Have a Sig too as my daily and I will probably be buried in that Karma. Absolutely love it. @Fabulist
convinced me not to change the panel on the Sig but I have a few other candidates like an eclipse, deep ocean, shadow, silver wind and some others, but if going all out will probably do it on a different build where I am content on all aspects of it- hence the White Sand/Earth combo.
Good reason to pickup another Karma like many other members have like @SoCalGuy
The Karma is the best all around "road feel" car in this class and I don't think any OEM in this range uses the same type of steering setup Hydraulically Assisted Power Steering (Rack and Pinion). Most are going to pure electric assist which I think feels horrible. Would be curious if the New Karma is going to pure Electric PS or is sticking with the same system? Maybe someone can find out and post here? I digress.
We will keep pushing forward modifications to improve the classic Karma and if/when the new Karma is launched we will integrate high demand improvements from that vehicle into the 2012 vehicles for all to enjoy. If demand warrants.

The solar panel powers a cabin fan that really doesn't cool but circulates cabin air. This can be done without the large panel. Like most of the car it is mostly for looks rather than usefulness. A smaller panel could power the fan via SPBC without the need for such a large one. Mainly a design feature. The three panel design referenced above accomplishes the same task as the current opaque contiguous panel. Why not have your cake and eat it too?
