I've been reading posts in this forum and notice that many persons had no choice in the add-ons that the dealer charged for their CRV. I'm not talking about the options that were manufacture installed, I am thinking about the dealer installed stuff. I'm particularly interested in things like paint protection, fabric protection, security etching, pin-striping, etc. Did you have to pay for those? It would also be interesting to hear about the OEM stuff added too; I know these things are a big profit center for dealers. They can raise the sticker price over the MSRP by several thousands of dollars and then, they discount the add-ons and the purchaser still winds up paying MSRP or close. I know for mine, there was a $299 charge for some security stickers with numbers that were placed on door frames and other parts of the CRV's frame. They said they could use the numbers to track the car back to its owner. Really?! I refused to pay. The stickers are still on the car but I guess the number was not reported.
