Other cars seem to charge no more than $1000 as a factory option, or just include it in upper trims (such has been the case in the Mazda3 GT for some years now).
Because now you are talking about a core return program.
The 18" option on the Titanium costs what, 450?
Getting those very same 18s, the tires and TPMS sensors say from your dealership later on costs 3780; the price I was quoted.
The reason OEM setups cost less is because you aren't paying the full price, you're just paying the difference from the regular assemblies and electrical bits to the HID assemblies.
