An airbag system that didn't throw the light on everytime you moved one of the front seats.

Alloy wheels that are made out of some kind metal,not cheese as on the Lag 2.

Turbos that actually force air into the engine and not act as a sump emptier....

Oh,so many mods.......
Amen to the clutch - had an '85 cavalier 1.6, and the half hour clutch change was a godsend.

I'd also echo the chain driven cams rather than belt driven - massively more reliable. They can still break, but not split/stretch like belts can.

Most things mentioned here are what most designers would view as common sense, which rarely seems to crop up in automotive design
