I stop my rant here, but I really don't see your point. Following your thinking, why do we'd buy a car that has auto-dimming rear mirrors or HID lights or 7 speeds. 4 speeds are great, bulbs are enough and so on.
Then PAY FOR IT
, and stop bitching about losing $10K on depreciation .... (not you specifically voldar) ....
And not only that ... your argument above about those little things is not valid, in that a lot of the things you mention don't take the price of a car From $20K to $30K, and result in an almost instant $10K loss.
That is my point.
If you don't want to be somewhat 'reasonable' when purchasing big ticket items like a car .... then you have no business bitching about losing a lot of money based on your purchase decision.
