Dead on!!!! That is the exact reason we don't get some of the options available in Europe. Sure they could be options, and you wouldn't have to check them. But people still would check what they WISH that they could have, and then complain even more that it is now $10k more than an Elantra/Cruze/Mazda3/etc.
This is the same reason we never got the RS. Sure people say they want it, and sure some people actually would get it, but once they are faced with actually dishing out the cash, they choke and get something cheaper.
These LED's are nice, and I'm sure people will want it. But show up to the dealer and pay an extra $1000 and people suddenly stop showing interest.
