I was asked a Question the other day,and i cant think of an answer,maybe someone on the forums can help, the Question was, say you want to buy an XR8, which is $50,000. for the base car plus on road costs,then you decide you want the premium brake package,which is say $3000.,this goes on top of the base price,but do you get a credit for the standard brakes that they dont put on the car,if you were to buy the car in base form,then later on walk in to your local Ford dealer and order the premium brake package,i take it you would still pay the same amount $3000. plus GST of course, but you would still have your origanal brakes,to keep or sell, the same could apply to all options,were they take a part off,and put a more expensive part on,can some one explain how this works. Thanks.
Though the steering wheel can be fitted afterwards... and you get to keep it.

BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....
45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
No,iam not looking to buy anything,iam just asking a question,and as for them being a factory fit item,it still dosent answer the question,do you get a credit for the parts they dont fit,or do you pay for the lot.
If they are a Factory fit only, then you would never see the old brakes, so maybe the "credit" is built into the price? Anyway, Ford need all the low km std spec rotors they can get their hands on at the moment!LOL
If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.
if you buy the car at $50,000
then you want premium brakes at $3000
if after you had the car, and you wanted the premium brakes you would prob pay $5000, then you would have the old brakes
The $3000 is a factory fitted price, where they have taken the allowance for not fitting the standard brakes.
Thats how it works, trust me , I have bought so many new cars, none of them standard, you never get credit or parts

Yes, options pricing includes giving up whatever is being 'replaced'. TS50 has it right.
In my opinion this can be better because as with my AU2 XR8 if you get the old parts you end up filling a whole room with stuff and have to sell it for crazy clearance prices to people like, oh, ED XR8
