Another add on the labor cost side. (considering how there's going to be a LOT more parts that are wired up on every car) My experience has been that not very many technicians/mechanics (or just people in general) can work with electricity, mathematically or methodically. It's just beyond their reach -- save maybe 1 out of 10(?)..... I suppose schools could do better here, .. maybe/maybe not. So to attract those few, you've got to offer the money. Good for those that are doing the work,.. no so good if you're the one paying for it. /my "old school" civic is looking better every day -- think I'll go wash it off and pet it.
