Have you taken a look at some of the incredible gadgets that luxury cars have these days? For instance, Tesla has a big 17-inch touch screen in many of its high-end electric car models.
Meanwhile, Rolls-Royce models often feature a retractable hood ornament. The reason for this is because the beautiful Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament is often stolen by people and sold for its precious metals. Keeping the hood ornament concealed from others is done to keep the car and the ornament safe from harm.
Some places will charge extreme amounts just for some of the items that you might take for granted.
