    But it looks like it has a lot of legroom

    The sad part is that it’s not far off the mark. BMW is planning to charge an annual fee for features that the car CAME with when it was bought, such as heated seats and cruise control.

    Hmmmm…and they wonder why people are opting to go for used cars more often now.

    “Hightower Auto Sales” must belong to “Electronic Arts” (gamer joke folks.;-D)

    Navigating the different packages can be daunting. Luckily you can do it on the internet before getting into the shark pool.

    I remember when power steering, power breaks, motorized windows, and seat belts were options. Times have changes and some of it is better.

    Sometimes, you get what you pay for.

    A dealer tried telling my wife that certain items were value added and she had to pay extra for them. She replied “Then take them out” They said they could not, so she said “Then I am buying another brand of car”. They dropped the up charge.

    As we’re herded onto mass transit like cattle.

    Is full air for the tires also extra? That left rear is way low.

    No one wants a stripped down car when the salesman tells them a desirable model is only a few dollars more a month. So that’s how the average car got to $35K.

    The stools are not included… because they’re samples.

    Remember the old days when automatic transmission, power steering and brakes, the radio (later just FM was optional – they all had AM by then) and air conditioning were optional equipment.

    I bought a 1970 Corvette in ‘77 and drove it home sitting on a bucket. The seats weren’t finished being reupholstered and I had to get it out of the shop where I bought it. This padded stool looks like an upgrade to the towel I used!

    I’ll take it like it is. I really love modding out cars myself!
