Very good example Gordon. But what happens in India, most of the time we would have stretched our budgets to the limit to buy that dream car and would have additional budget for ICE, Alloys etc. 20K may not make sense to low end car buyers. But premium cars, yes.

You spend Rs 500,000/- for a car and find it difficult to invest 4% (Rs 20,000/-) for the self-repairing paint?! This paint MAY prevent deep scratches too.

Interesting, isn't it?
very intersting way to put it Gordon. But I guess this percentage doesnt grow linearly with the cost ( of Phone/ car )

Yup exactly. Theoretically it's right and linear as well. But it would not always scale so. Going by that login if a person spends 20K on a 5L car for audio then the person should spend 2L for a 50L house.

Not "should", but "could" or "can".

Either ways, we'll have to wait for it to reach here. We don't even have this "option".
