But when is good enough, good enough?Well, from my point of view, it is only through the identification of shortcomings that improvements can be made.
But perhaps that sentiment should be only in the modifications section.
We are conditioned in our society to never rest, to never be satisfied, to always be improving.. but that ALWAYS leads to suffering..for desire is the other face of the same coin of resistance (if we desire something we resist everything else). Resistance (and therefore desire) always leads to suffering.
In my example: reading all those friggen motorcycle mags for all those years lead me to never be happy with the product I owned. I was perfect prey for the consumer driven economy based on debt slavery.. more than a double hit of suffering in my case (depreciation is another good one)... once you see it.. the game changes.
In my opinion, cars and motorcycles as a whole are pretty amazing machines now: reliable, handle pretty darn good, etc etc.
You could for example buy pretty well any major mfg sport bike (motorcycle) from model year 2000 on, and almost 98% of the public could never out ride it.
So what the heck do we need all these new bikes for other than replacing old warn out stuff, but that isn't what drives the market... see my notes above.
I am MUCH happier now understanding that I don't need the latest and greatest widget.. frankly unplugging from TV four years ago was amazing with regards to reducing suffering, needless wasteful spending.. etc. Soon you realize all it is for is to sell products that we don't need and that we can't afford, based on programming you to be conditioned that you need the latest and greatest widget. Now we run out and purchase that on credit and become debt slaves long after that product is worn out, gone or something.. its just crazy...and that debt slavery does so much damage and creates so much suffering.
I loved my Corvette Z06, but I loved being out of debt more.. in hindsight.. I wouldn't change a thing.. the Vette is gone and the Insight is in.. and she's magic.
