My apologies, but this is a special annoyance to me:

VTEC is Honda's "pick a cam lobe on the fly" system.
V-tech is maker of cordless phones.

I think the car makers would be ecstatic if they could instantly obsolete all used cars. They'd have an unbelievably huge market for new cars! The aftermarket would not be happy, since they would have to throw out most of their product lines, so you could count on opposition from SEMA among others, but the new-car folks would be through the roof.
