I'm going to disagree. Obviously, we have to wait and see how it pans out, but the whole business model is designed around having inexpensive parts that can be utilized by a multitude of platforms. SO, instead of having to buy that aerodynamically designed hand crafted blinker fluid container, there will be an interchangeable surplus of them hanging around. Now, CHANGING that part might still be a colossal biotch, and require $100 plus dollars an hour in labor (haha), but the part itself will in theory be more inexpensive.
