That statement is perfectly rational in theory, and I do think it applies to many of us. For instance, I'm quite satisfied with my setup at the moment, and I have no intention of changing any aspect of it in the foreseeable future. It's conceivable, in fact, that I'll be playing the same drums and cymbals ten years from now, having added nothing to my lineup at all. For some, however, temptation is endless. The tendency to acquire gear sometimes has nothing to do with playing it. It's about shopping for it, ordering it, unboxing it, and experiencing it for the first time. The high fades fast, and consumers find themselves repeating the process only days later. Retailers love it. They're the only ones who benefit in the long run.When you have a really great instrument that fits perfect like an old baseball glove, I contend that it saves money because temptation is pretty much eliminated.
And a Honda Civic is much better built in every aspect compared to any Cadillac or Lincoln ever. Again, build is king. All the leather and woodgrain in the world doesnt keep the bumper from falling off. Who cares about any of that stuff if the car dont start?He summed it up best with this: "Get behind the wheel of a high-end auto and you’ll instantly understand that it performs and responds better than the typical family car – in fact it’s a joy to drive, not just transportation, and it has many features that’ll help you to handle it well."
