If I did not change things in a car to more closely fit my personal tastes, preferences and needs I would probably get tired of it after a couple of years, too. How often do I want to do it over again? Not every couple of years! Kinda like breaking in a new pair of jeans -- once they're comfortable, they stay comfortable for a while.

Buying cars outright also keeps me from being too spendy on too many cars too often!
