I would agree somewhat with your point about gadgetry....but a few things to remember here...the person that buys a new Porsche for 50-80K probably does not like the looks of a club on his steering wheel...I think at that amount of money it has more to do with look than practicality
In regard to the door closers on an S-class...mine have been repaired(new pump)...I considered the price reasonable considering the original sticker price of the car...I am not the original owner of the car but I would imagine again a person who drops 75K on their auto has some higher expectations of their car....and when things break on those cars one would only expect it to be $$$
I mean it you wanted stone cold practicality I don't think any top of the line luxury car or sports car would be on your shopping list.....so why do people still buy them?...
