    Default good websites for checking options prices on used cars?

    Is there any site that keeps a database of base models/options through different model years for Canada?

    I had a bit of success with Autos.ca which helped me decipher the insane Lexus option packages with their moronic names. Pricing? No. But it still was very helpful for me when buying from someone who was "bro, it's fully of the fullyest loaded, bro!" And learning they have Premium < Premium 2 < Ultra Premium < Ultra Premium 2
    Plus there's some dumb "Touring" option which by default indicates "Premium 2" without actually saying it... Etc.
    A small help, but not exactly what it sounds like you're after.

    Reviews from Edmunds etc sometimes lay out pricing for option packages, although those are USA, so packages and pricing is different in Canada.
    Archives of Canadian reviews are harder to find.

    What car are you looking at specifically? Some brands have specific resources.

    Probably a McLaren. In which case, OP should be asking his black card concierge for help rather than the interwebz.

    Yeah. I mean, Ford publishes a really clear "order guide" every year for thier f150, but suspect he's thinking of something else.

    I know this doesn't help much but when I bought '12 135i recently I asked on a Facebook group and someone gave me a link to punch in the VIN # and it gave me all the features of my particular car.

    Try any of the brand and model specific online forums, they should also have them listed somewhere there.

    We've met IRL, and as you know I would make the ugliest woman on the planet. So all is good.

    If I ever consider a transition I will let you know first.

    It's been so long, and the world is changing, wondered if you had too. Not like you are a particularly beautiful man anyway....

    Some of the biggest names in lingerie modelling have masculine features.
