Interest of a $500 deposit?

I think the game (as describe to me) is about getting $500-$1500 dollars out of a sale, for the same options that WOULD HAVE be installed at the factory (at the time of order) vs. dealer install (in which labor has be to charged). I believe that is the purpose of it - not trying to make interest off a deposit. Which in this day an age, with the short-term rate at Zero, is really nothing, maybe $1 at best.
