What are options?

The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "options" or "add-ons."
You expect a new car to come with tires, mirrors, seats and other obvious necessities. It also may come with options, or add-ons, which are extra features often added by the dealer. These might include an anti-theft system, detailing and rust-proofing. Experts dismiss some of these upgrades as "mop and glow" -- purely decorative upgrades that aren't worth the additional cost.

Options, or add-ons, are the extras that can boost the price of a new car, sometimes not in a smart way.
