you pay more for less?!
It is true you have to pay way more for less, example… in 1997 the debut of the HONDA integra type R. When that came out on the market in america people were “WHAT THE CRAP?!” the seats are narrow, roll up crank windows, thin carpets, no stereo!.. YET it cost more that a HONDA integra GSR. Resulting having HONDA losing some money each time they sold them.
Now let us fast forward to today’s time… prime example would be PORSCHE GT3 RS, it is a out of the dealer, ready to race, excellent weekend track monster kind of car. ONLY the brave and single and rich and very insane would use it as a DAILY DRIVER. You have to pay way more such a car versus the normal GT3. But I must not forget for all the American Muscle fans. COPO, COBRA JET, HEMI drag pak; yes the big three also will sell you cars with less things but for a high price.
Overall consumers tend to go “OH WOW!!! I CAN GET THAT?!,” but later realize well shit what happen to this and that? or how come I don’t have this? Then it completely hits them “WTF I have to pay more to add that SHIT?!”
Yes well seriously you should have known what your going to get into before you gone and got it. If your going to buy something like a car, be sure you get what you want; the color of your car, creature comforts, and nik naks you need. Instead of playing the whole ONE UP game with everyone else.
Personally, I bought a 2006 is350 it came with all what I want and need. Yet only lack in the power. After tuning and throwing lots of money and sanity out the window I was able to make it the fastest streetable N/A is350 putting down 800hp at the rear. Which I eventually gave to my wife, because we were in the market for another car and found me my 2008 ISF, which I can currently throwing more money and sanity out the big back door this time. I am a person who loves to tune and get the most of the engine and overall capabilities of the car instead of adding stuff that may not work with the car.
But what I noticed between the two cars I have less is often more fun than more. Sure ISF is heavier but thats because it has more structural support, but it did lack some of the little things what the is350 had. Cooling seats, light up door board things, rear shade thing, middle seat… thats all I can think of…
Overall paying more for less is no surprise, I mean you pay a lot of money to see a girl get naked, you pay a lot for produce with no chemical added to it. THERE ARE 50-60 dollar plain white t shirts people!!!
If you start complaining about the price of something, start thinking about what is added to it then you’ll understand, after that look at something more stripped down and be amazed why that is more expensive.
