Exactly my point. People want different things and hence places different valuation on things (or "utility" as those economists call it). For Ventoux, having a solid retirement is important to him/her.

As for me, this is one case in life where I do not do what I preach. I can afford the 650i without undue compromising. I'm grateful for that.
