How would that help?
Everyone would have a solid colour, the manufacturer would lose money and have to re-do the prices all over again?
I realise you may be being ironic or something - but upping the spec with options has been mentioned in the thread a few times.
Very odd answer.....
Yes, I was being 'funny'.
But having seen the price some manufacturers charge for paint, maybe not (£2k for a red model 3).
I hope they come up with a better answer though. I hate when the 'build your own car' feels like you actually are.
I have an Eniro, and it had came in 3 flavours. Pick one, job done.
The endless list of options that bmw/mini/audi/mb/vw etc do feels like a money grabbing exercise.
I looked at the Enyaq. Car starts at under £32k, but with a few mouse clicks I'm looking at over £40k.
It doesn't feel honest to me.
And now to contradict myself, I do like a few choices (I don't like sunroofs, but that came as part of my trim level).
But they've gone too far with it.
I haven't run the numbers, but I do wonder whether this option game actually save you money anyway.
Sure, you miss out on the grant if the car trim level includes all the toys, but adding options to a car doesn't massively increase the 2nd hand value, and looks like options costs are loaded directly into leasing prices.
Anyone compared leasing prices of a loaded Enyaq vs basic?
