    I came across http://www.sector111.com. The Roadster parts are kind of hidden. If you select "Parts" and then choose Roadster in the selector on top
    you will find some cool upgrades:
    Suspension parts: balljoint: http://www.sector111.com/parts/track/highly-recommended/dsbrace.cfm
    Steering: The fast ratio steering seems incredibly appealing: http://www.sector111.com/parts/performance/suspension/titanqrrack.cfm
    They also have a carbon fiber mirror, CF hardtop for $2200 + 150, CF steering wheel.

    Has anyone tried their fast ratio steering?

    Some of their upgrades for the Lotus Elise should fit as well.

    You can get winter mats from them as well.

    What exactly is the steering upgrade meant to do?

    The weave on the CF on the mirrors and hard top is much smaller than the Roadster's parts. I didn't think this would bother me until I saw it in person at their shop. There are other threads on Sector111, including attempts to do a group buy on wheels.

    Shinoo the owner has studied the Roadster / Elise differences extensively. I went down there 4 years ago and he measured my car for the mats and checked brakes, special mirrors. etc., etc...

    Tighter/closer steering ratio meaning you don't have to turn the steering wheel as much to get the car to respond... i.e.: quicker driver to car response time.

    Actually, they fit fine save the fact that I had to puncture holes in them to accommodate the floor lugs...mine look exactly like those in your photo except mine are black, not grey...
