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.
