Can you point me to where that is, Adrian? My owner's manual doesn't 
have a list of options, as far as I can see, but it's 150 pages long. 
It's marked "American Specification Edition Part No. 606592"

Well, presumably they had the sales brochure and the price list to work 
from. You'd have to be a pretty abysmally poor salesman not to know what 
the options were on a car with so few. The factory options are 
extra-cost bits of equipment offered by the factory to the customer. If 
they aren't offered, they aren't really an option, are they?

Going to the factory and convincing the factory through the generous 
application of dollars to custom make a leather interior for you doesn't 
really equate to a limited list of options offered to the general public.

I wonder what that leather interior cost, by the way?
