This is certainly the best way if you only keep them for a short while and you do not lease. After a few years, all of those options are not worth anything in reasale, but if you're not happy without them, then you'll be more likely to sell it, vicious cycle The difference between the Fiesta ST I leased with every option except recaros and a stripped out ST was like 7 dollars. The recaros would have been another 15$ a month, but after having them on my Focus ST I decided they were too uncomfortable for me.The best way to buy a new car is with the fewest options you can get. The real depreciation is what they add on for the options. It's a joke. Just another reason I'm glad I have a 0 option oxford white FiST. I'm in the business and have had over 50 cars, and I'm 42. I've done it a few times.
