I just purchased a 2019 cart from TV in Colony Plaza. My salseman was Corey, he explained everything to my wife and I and I should add the cart came with almost everything that people are mentioning as standard equipment.

A lot of options discussed here. One item I did not see concerned the rigid extenders for seat belt buckles. This makes buckling up much more easy. You do not have to grapple for the loose buckle behind you. It is sticking upright between the riders.

We bought our cart second hand so I cannot tell you where they were purchased. I just know I would never purchase another cart without them.

SEATS #1. Your going to be sitting in them a lot. Spend for the upgraded ones. Overhead Storage tray in the front. Self cancelling signals. If you go out with friends or like us have dogs Definately get the eagle platform. You can add a golf bag holder on if you golf as well.

Got a back up camera but probably not really needed unless you have issues with turning around. Seatbelts, got them for safety but only wore them once. If you drive safe it could be forgone.

You know whatever you want a on a cart is important, to someone else it’s a waste of money. Me myself a cooler is a waste because they’re to small & 12 pack cooler you pay to much, $99. You could or about buy a YETI for that much. Besides you only use coolers that hook on your cart when play golf. Or go to the swimming pool you take it inside the pool, so you take a bigger one from home & sit it on the passenger side floor. Nothing is a waste of money, only to the person that doesn’t want a certain item. Then it’s a waste of money!

Here's an idea.....why not take a trip to the villages golf cart store and look at their option packages that are put together and decide what's important to you! You aren't obligated to buy, but will walk away with a list of available items and option prices.

Great seats, try them all. I like the adjustable seatbelts, not retracting. They aren't too tight, too many operations in the middle. Self canceling turn signal a must. Backup camera only helpful w/a cab. Storage shelves front and rear. Lockable dash. Golf accessories. I like the lower vented windshield that doesn't have the folding top ( fold right in my view). Extra lights on the sides.

I changed the windshield to one that didn't have the folding bar right in the middle, but lower down. (Not sure what it's called) The visibility without that bar in the middle is terrific. As I recall, there was no additional cost.
