A center console arm rest
Roof rails
A cargo cover
For me, the arm rest cover and the cargo cover were the great scores.
I picked up the roof rails as I thought I would like the feature, have yet to put them on though as I'm hesitant to change the look of the car.

I'm betting a lot of cars go to the boneyard with door, body and trunk/tailgate seals still on them. Shame if the seals are good.
