So, with his film-editing analogy, Jim Keeler (Readers' Forum, Dec. 6) is telling me when we bought our new Toyota van that the dealer was wrong in honoring our requests for modifications? We had him rip out the upholstery and replace it with aftermarket leather, as well as an aftermarket sunroof. As far as I can tell, it is still a Toyota.

From what I understand, the videos were also made to order.

Next time I order carpet I'll just put the uncut roll in the basement. I would never want to violate the intentions of the creator my making it useful.
