Compulsive car shopper that I am, I keep looking at new models. However, it seems impossible to get the features I want (e.g. ventilated seats, rear-seat electronic HVAC, etc) without buying the largest V8 or V12 available.
That is, I'm forced to guzzle gasoline in order to enjoy the features I want. I find most cars overpowered as it is, particularly since traffic is very heavy almost everywhere I go. Really don't want a 400hp or 500hp car!
Is there a solution short of special-ordering a new model? My dealer imposes a surcharge over list price for that. And even so, some options aren't available with smaller engines. Even though they have nothing to do with the engine. Oh well.
There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply. The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey. --John Ruskin
