LOL excitebike!
so just a new part number will cost $10,000. this includes all the drawing updates, system changes, supply chain integration, etc.
then have to qual test it, theres another $50,000. stuff like mil-std-810
then durability testing, another $25,000

thats all on top of a redesign effort, including design reviews with a room full of engineers/managers.
then change the kanban tags, and track old vs new inventory.
then update the repair manuals, software, drawings, etc.

theres a lot more, but you get the idea

While true, Lexus take it to a whole new level of crazy. Same cruise control lever for 2 decades, similarly other components exist. Only now with the intro of the Toyota Generation Next Architecture have we finally see them move to newer components, and even then no HD camera.

+1 Would a better camera provide any better picture? Or are we really limitied by the in-dash headunit (not the camera)?

screen quality is decent, it looks HD (it's 480p) when playing DVDs in comparison to camera picture quality, this makes me wonder if one soldered in aftermarket camera would alleviate the problem
