For me I would say besides power I would want the exterior paint to be more durable because it chips a lot (especially the soul red color).

Ditto and partially ditto. Re power, it's not so much power per se, but bottom-end torque. Also gearing. No granny-gear first-gear! and a taller 6th (on my 6MT). The gearing vs. low end torque comments are not counter to one another: I want to get further down the road (from a stop) before I have to shift to 2nd... i.e. I want a taller 1st gear, and I want there to be more bottom-end torque to be able to pull a taller 1st gear. First gear feels decent once I have a few revs on - but I would like to be able to shift 1st to 2nd at 2500 - for normal commuting-driving, and not bog in 2nd.

The paint is definitely thin, but on a day to day basis the feature I'd like most would be the full stop and go adaptive cruise control like 2018s have. My infotainment complaints were largely taken care of by the addition of Android Auto, though it'd be nice to have turn-by-turn directions in the active driving display like with factory nav.

I second that about power and paint, I'd like a closer gear spacing between 1st and 2nd gears (MT). the side view mirrors have a huge blind spot due to being position back from the A-pillar. It is aesthetically pleasing, but creates that huge blind spot, that I haven't experienced with other cars.

Allowing manual transmissions back in the lineup, not only for Touring but for all models.

In the US, only for Sport trim can you get a manual, currently for MY18. In Canada, you cannot get 6MT for ANY trim. Used to be, for MY17, you could get it for GX, GS, GT (more or less the same as US trims Sport, Touring and Grand Touring).

I just want to black out all my chrome trim/emblems and pick up some new black wheels. I actually purchased black vinyl for the trim, but I'm waiting for warmer weather to do it. I also need to fix a broken tail light, oh well!

Oh and for the record, my car is red. Terran Republic for life!

Well, starting in 2019 you won't be able to get a manual in a 6 for ANY trim

Atrociously thin paint, ill-thought out infotainment system and better gearing in the automatics. It is geared towards fuel economy, and unless you stomp on the throttle, it can get pretty hairy getting on and off ramps as it refuses to downshift.
