Quite often, people talk about the cars they are looking to buy without really knowing the costs involved. Once you’re sat down in that manufacturer’s lounge, you are talked into all kinds of extra equipment on your car; Bose sound systems, heated seats.. Sure, you might have already requested these, but do you really know how much of a difference they’ll make to the price? We take a look at a few rip-off car features that have hit the market this year. .
Bose Sound Systems
Currently featuring on a lot of Audi’s, these sound systems are hundreds of pounds extra to install in your car. But have you ever thought of how much it would cost to install it yourself at a later date? Substantially cheaper…
Any sort of roof gear designed by the manufacturer is going to cost you. A bike rack, a snowsports hub, or even a kayak rack? Best save this until you get the car. Prepaid car equipment will set you back a lot.
Anyone who thought it was a good idea to mix hot coffee and driving fast needs a talking to. Plus, it’ll cost you hundreds for a cup of coffee you’ll just spill over your white shirt…
One word: Honda. Why do we need built-in hoovers in cars? It’s cheaper to lug your Henry outside with an extension lead.
