Slightly skewed due to option prices here but I dare say even in the US my total would be more than US $10K. As it turns out it was AUD $36K

Really? Did you start out intending to buy a Diesel?

You alone cost me AUD$7500!

As for this forum, somewhere in the vicinity of AUD$20000

You left out the negative part, that is, after reading someone might have decided against buying an option and saved money.

For example, I had the skid plates specced. But then questioned my initial decision if they were truly functional or bling. Originally I presumed that since the car was meant for softroading, they might be truly functional.

Yes, I'm my case I was thinking adding AS which I have now have decided not to add. I will however add comfort lighting, of course, a cheaper addition hence the forum saved me a bit.

I saved money because of this forum; dropped Infotainment and added only Comfort Lighting and the Smoking Package Beyond that, our final build is little different than what I conceived almost one year ago.
