Have you noticed with the Internet empowering everybody, and social media providing a constant flow of sound bites. Everyone has an opinion, can provide advice, suggestions, and more sound bites to anyone that will read, listen, pay passing attention.
Obvious that the "autosphere" is rampant with all sorts of stuff, from all sorts of experts, generating all sorts of comments.
You often read / hear "I was considering this, after visiting forums, reading opinions, watching videos, I changed my mind and acquired that".
Or you see a comparison here, another there, and again you know the outcome, one scored half point less than the other, and so on.
When it comes to vehicles...
"There is nothing that money can't fix".
"You need gas to make horsepower" and in 2016 its usually premium.
"The metal must resonate with you" if it does not resonate you will not be satisfied.
"Its your money, you are free to spend it as you wish"
"We are all individuals, with our own preferences."
You go off and spend money on a vehicle, or embark on a multi month commitment of payments. Of course you will read about vehicles, your preferences, but do your thing.
Its you money and/or you commitment spend it in a fashion that provides satisfaction for you and your stakeholders...
Yes...do your thing.
A simple example...
The Colonel prefers a sedan, rear wheel drive, with a V8. It might be all wrong for someone else, completely off the wall for another, or just plain crazy.
Who needs a rear wheel drive sedan with a V8, when everyone is converging towards utilities, with turbos, and AWD?
You want to be informed, empowered, but...do your thing.
After you have done your thing...do not play Monday morning quarterback on yourself.
