people people people..
I wish people would LEARN.. its NORMAL for car companies to enhance features year over year.. and wahhh cry to the ones that think they should get upgrades to their car.. (and most would say they want them FREE!!) but I digress here...
if you could upgrade your current car to the latest features there would be little reason to buy a new one... and that causes a couple issues.. not upgrading makes business sense..
1] Early adopters willing to buy new cars gets the nameplate out on the road quickly as well as makes the manufcaturer money
2] early traders (1-3 years) puts nice late model used cars on the lots.. (which often buyers come to look at and are easy to finance for less-than-stellar credit customers...resulting in decent resale prices.. same dealer may make money on the same car twice)
3] it would be a SERVICE NIGHTMARE to service cars that are both upgraded and ones that arent... as many people as want the new software will also want to keep the old... (Hey dont upgrade me i like the old better!)..
from a programmer standpoint having to test new loads against new and old features would be true PAIN.. as it is now some new loads require complete reflashes of the car and dont majorly affect operating features..
4] used car buyers expecting a 2011 software feature end up with a 2013 feature that they didnt want...
egads that means we need to create DOWNGRADE capabilities.. even more software distribution nightmares...
want a new feature?? go buy a new car.. pure and simple..
