All those will add up to the $10k price tag increase. I am not saying that I would buy it with these option add on, but there are people out there that will. Also for that increase of $15k by the dealer is a rip off. CF mirror , kidney grill and powder coated wheels doesn't cost that much to add on. They are stupid for over charging on those parts.
Yes the $15 dealer mark-up is ridiculous, but you can argue that the $10k for lime rock is as well.
Sure you get the M perf exhaust, carbon fiber parts, and the steering wheel..
but $5 for "special" paint!?
If you really want to stay under warranty, which is why I assume many buy M perf parts,
get a dinan exhaust ($2.5k) and buy the body parts separately from a reputable source, such as eAs, and save a significant amount.
Then still have enough left over for dinan performance parts.
