Now, how many people that complain about weight gain in modern cars are also buying cars with every option or nearly every option? The answer is a lot more than "none", and probably close half based on observations of how many people spec their cars loaded on this forum.

It's a simple trade off, really. More luxury = more $$$ and more lbs.
yes sir. all 100% true. ppl complain about weight but slap every feature on in the book.

pccb is 8k alone. not to mention all those cf bits and customizations.
