I understand it increases cost. I was just speaking to the comment about complexity. The only thing thats really anymore complex is the ECU programming which one usually doesn't ever need to mess with. You might even argue that its LESS complex due to having a beefier starter that is designed for many more starting cycles and may not ever need to be replaced.
