Dunno if you've already sussed this but just in case.... The whole idea of the actual Cup model is that it weighs less and handles better. To achieve this you lose some of the creature comforts (like climate control, cruise etc) but gain the altered chassis and wheels, spoilers etc.

Unless you are going to do loads of track stuff and are that bothered I wouldn't go for the Cup but get the 182 with Cup pack (like I did) then you get the best of both worlds, including your digital climate control.

Plus apart from the obvious missing bits in the Cup are you really going to notice the 20kg weight difference whilst you're driving it around every day? Probably not I'd say.

Happy shopping.
