The FGS is expensive, especially considering that you can perform a first gear start yourself pretty easily - when stopped at a light, drop the transmission into "B" (1st), then back into "D". The car will now start off in first.
Also, there is a school of thought that the FGS module is actually the kiss of death for older transmissions with high mileage that are used to second gear starts. Converting to FGS will cause the early demise of the transmission. Maybe, maybe not.
