    yeah, that woulda been a hell of a lawsuit. Especailly since sony makes money from every ******* car head unit anyway (well most at least, a lot of the parts of any head unit are made by sony). Also I would think pioneer and bose would have an issue with this, since many cars come stock with bose equipment and pioneer is in all the new scions.

    I find this article more interesting http://www.bbspot.com/News/2003/01/nozzle.html

    Nak's are quite simple, and remind me of some old school units, not alot of buttons. Somewhat expensive, and most are like Mcintosh units when it comes to them omiting certain features that most people are used too, but they more than make up for it with their sound quality

    Yeah, same with Denon...only quality at the highest level. Not too many buttons, no flashing 100 colours, no dolphons on the display...

    That is kind of a silly comment at the end about the retooling. The engineers would simply program the radio installing robots to roll spliffs and make the tea.

    The Car Industry has faced a radio law suit in the past. It was to fight for open tech for the aftermarket makers to have a shot at selling. It was years ago.

    I think everyone who has a car should file a law suit against car makers for making cars so crapply and charging too much for spares and designing them to be so bloody hard to fix!
