Options are mostly worthless when it comes to trade in time but that's all part of the depreciation. I intend to enjoy my car with all the options rather than worry about how little I'll get back for it when I come to trade it in. Live for today and enjoy the car while you have it, depreciation isn't worth worrying about

Totally agree with you, what's the point in buying a new car if you cant enjoy it with the options you want without worrying about trade in values and depreciation.. life's way to short.
