A quick tally has us paying almost $30,000 more for the standard features requested. I would bet the production wait time would decrease drastically.

$60k for a 5.0TA?, that's Airstream territory.

And you have not even got into the options and custom modifications either, though many would now have become standard features.

Now here's an idea. For those wanting all these standard features, maybe they should look at an Airstream instead. Oh wait, they won't get them all there either.

Lots of good things to say about Airstream, but still lots of less desirable things too, not just the cost.

Jim,
Are you saying your new 5.0 is $60k with $30k in option or you are paying $30k more than you paid for your 19? I can not get anywhere near that amount with my iCloud 5.0 using just almost all of the listed shown plus some extras, I'm only nearing $42K

My interpretation of his comment about the additional $30K is that the options that posters are suggesting in this thread to be made standard would add an additional $30K to the current list price. I may be wrong...have been before.
