Getting a Summit with lower body panels in a different color simply didn't work for me. Without the Cali-package, I would have been bound to a grey Summit and - to somehow match the interior to that - a black interior. As an alternative, my dealer would have had to paint all the parts although I'm not sure if that was even possible on a lease in the first place.
So for a factory-option, they certainly make a healthy profit - but since I'm leasing, I'm only paying less than $500.
Somehow, I'm having my doubts that my dealer would have been able to paint the entire lower panels, the mirror-housings and door-handles for less, so I'm OK with that.
After all, it's an option
so everybody can decide if it's what they want or not and if it's worth it. In my case, I was happy about this offer because I had far more color-choices.
BTW, I don't care about the brushed trim or wheels at all. The standard chrome would have been fine as well.
