It'* because of the way GM does their RPO options. It makes everything seem individual and rare/semi rare. (Sequences of the RPO'* can be different but the same in aggregate) I know my GXP is full loaded, and Cranberry Metallic wasn't a common color, but one of one .

BTW Comp Nine is an excellant place to find exploded views of all parts and get pat numbers. And parts if you can;t find them elsewhere. But pricey for sure.
