Yes, Bruce is right, the roll hoops are only standard on 2.8/3.0 models. In the UK there's no way we would spec a car with individual colors etc unless it was top of the range with engine etc. In Europe, they are more likely to spend their money on other extras first.

Attached below is a price sticker off a German Dakar Yellow special. As you can see it's only a 1.8 but it's got a special paint job, remote central locking, heated mirrors, roll hoops, velour footmats, heated seats, fog lamps, air conditioning, on-board computer, CD radio, hi-fi speakers, M steering wheel and white turn indicators.
