Yes a "Hell of a lot of money" and lets face it's not that many years have passed when we just used a MAP and rarely got lost .
I think this "must have for resale" is just a way to make big bucks for the dealers on options, come resale time the dealers play the up or down game 0n your PX value.
Some people get a bit sucked in ( me included) and go over the top on options, but come PX time I push as hard as I can on the next deal playing them off against each other to find a good deal
Live for now, life is too short.
