Here's what the dealer says are "intsalled options" on my old car

It's such a joke. Some dealer will try to make anything sound optional or fancy.
Btw, my old car was an '06 Civic EX AT with CD changer, XM, HFP rims, and HFP kit. I know I lost a lot but trading it in for the Fit was worth it.

Below are the options installed on this vehicle. (right, most of it is just standard stuff)
60/40 fold down rear seatback (standard, dur)
abs (4-wheel) (nearly all cars has ABS, dur)
air conditioning (uh, duh)
alloy wheels (duh)
am/fm stereo (duh)
body-color rear decklid spoiler (standard again!)
center console w/sliding armrest storage compartment (standard on every Civic!
child safety seat anchors (latch) (came with the car)
control-link macpherson strut front suspension (this, of course is standard! why would it be?)
cruise control (OK, this one kinda makes sense)
daytime running lights (dur)
dual front air bags (dur)
emergency trunk release (dur)
front bucket seats w/reclining seatbacks adjustable head restraints (dur)
front side air bags (dur)
front/rear 3-point seat belts w/front automatic tensioning system (wow, they sure made "seatbelts that work" sound really fancy)
front/rear beverage holders (dur)
front/rear stabilizer bars (dur)
impact-absorbing body-color bumpers (really big DUR)
moon roof (ok, but standard on the EX)
mp3 (single cd)
multi-reflector halogen headlamps (dur)
passenger seat walk-in feature w/memory (I don't have a clue what this is)
power door locks (dur)
power steering (dur)
power windows (dur)
pwr moonroof w/1-touch feature (this is the second time they mentioned the moonroof)
pwr rack & pinion steering (no way, steering is SOOO an option :-P)
pwr ventilated front/solid rear disc brakes (the front's are ventilated? They sure looked like solid discs to me)
reactive-link double wishbone rear suspension (dur)
rear spoiler (second time this is mentioned)
side curtain airbags (again, they keep on repeating)
side-impact door beams (dur)
tilt wheel (dur)

They sure make it sound appealing to the buyer who doesn't know squat.
