Point being, the rest of the world gets lots of options that the U.S. doesn't. For instance, red interior option

The same Q8 in Saudi Arabia is more expensive than it would cost in USA.

I contacted my dealer to configure red leather interior.

The bottom line here is "something" in the $5-6,000 neighborhood.

Red is an Exclusive color offering -- there is no reason to think it is special, it is a decision that was made by "someone" perhaps because red will be offered as a standard color in the SQ8. My S4 has a red leather interior. It was a $1,250 over the standard alcantara seats -- MARKETING.

Surely there are options that literally cost MORE than other options. Red leather seats are not offered in the RS5, but are in the S5. As far as I can tell (having driven both) there are no seat differences between the S5 and RS5. Red is not offered in the RS5, however.

I'm referencing AudiofAmerica offerings.

I don't doubt that "anything the traffic will allow" is a bad practice. But as much as I would like to have a Q8 with a red leather interior, it is not "worth" $6,000, it is worth $1,250. That it may be worth $6,000 to you does not make either one of us wrong.

But, I wish the choices were put on a menu (or a configurator) somewhere so that a rational and reasonable choice could be made from a list of possibilities.

Frankly, since Okapi brown leather is "no charge," I'd be fine with keeping the $6,000 for other things.

But, damn, the thing will be beautiful.

Mabrook Ziad, looks great! I'd love to see a pic showing the outside and inside together, perhaps with the door open or something.
