Inspirations - M's Designer Promotion

Part of the come-on that volume builder's do to attract your business is the "luxury upgrade pack". So for an additional $4950, we are promised, I mean, we are "inspired with up to $75,200 of luxury upgrades".  Wow, that's a bargain, right? Someone with some basic math skills can tell you if it adds up or not.

For us, just looking at what it offers, we thought, what the h3ck, let's do it. These are something we would like to add anyway. So what are we getting for an additional $4950?
  • Choice of timber stained stacker or bi-part door
  • Higher internal doors to ground floor (2340mm)
  • Floor tiles to entry, kitchen, family and dining
  • Quality carpet throughout with premium carpet underlay
  • CaesarStone benchtop to kitchen
  • Premium glass splashback to kitchen
  • Choice of Baumatic dishwasher (stainless steel or integrated)
  • Baumatic stainless steel microwave and trim kit
  • CaesarStone benchtop to ensuite
  • CaesarStone benchtop to laundry
  • Choice of Caroma semi-recessed, above counter or recessed basins
  • Seamless tiled showerbases throughout
  • Upgrade to 25 degree roof pitch (from standard 22.5 degree roof pitch)
  • Remote-controlled garage door
  • Designer front entry door - WINWS6G
  • Designer front entry door furniture
The list look impressive, isn't it? Sure did. But is it really worth $75,200?  It wasn't obvious when we were looking. But looking at their current promotions now, M have explained the breakdown value (someone must have complained)...

 We reckon it was a good deal.  Besides, we got another 50% promotion discount when we upgraded our flooring option from floor tiles to timber flooring (not timber-look flooring).
