Here is the Tricky part, When you go to add the item note the List Price of the parts Master, If you leave the extended list blank it will refer back to the List price on the Parts Master.

Ideally we would like them to add up to $499.00 But the Parts Master List price for the Head unit is $499. and the List price for the install Kit is $79. By manipulating the Extended Cost on the item we can override the Parts Master List price to be what we want to sell for, In this case, the head Unit will Sell for $439.00 and the Install Kit will sell for $60.
In the end we end up with a Parts kit that can be sold at a Price level of our Choosing.

In this way at a Management Level we can package commonly sold Items for the Sales team to make it easier for them to Find the Items and add the parts and the Correct amount of labor to install the parts on a vehicle.

The Cost function of the Equipment Cards on a deal will still pull their value shown from the Parts Master Record, Regardless of what Ledger Value or Extended Cost Value is input as.
You can update your Rules, or Approval Process to trigger a step if the Extended List Price of an Item on the Deal is adjusted by the Salesperson to make reviewing Deals Simple and easy.
If you are not able to update your Extended list price check with your administrator, there is a Workflow Rule that addresses Parts Kit Cost that may need to be disabled in order for this function to work.
