This is great news for all the poor and disadvantaged Lexus owners who cannot afford nanos.

heh - I honestly chuckled at that.

This is really nice and I think what seperates Lexus from a lot of other brands. Nothing fancy, nothing exotic, not even all that expensive. But, it was a thoughtful gesture. It would be nice to see more car companies doing little things like this after they fail to deliver.

Although - I wonder how many people are going to take them back to Lexus demanding an exchange because it got scratched :)

Yeah. Those poor Lexus owners. Now they do not have to save up and purchase that $200 Nano:)

Now if only Apple would start sending Lexus's to all those who've had their Mac's delayed!

I thought it was going to be a Lexus class action suit, with nanos as the settlement :o

not really it an aux jack so you can plug the cable in from your headphone jack to the line out and it works that way.... not the greatest solution... why can't lexus have built in system like BMW etc...

thank god lexus is starting to put some "balls" in their cars.... (the new IS 350 comes to mind) I like the look of the SC but its not a true sports car:)

Wut about us really loyal customers who bought 3 cars from them (with a 4th on the way)..where's my nano ;) :o

hmm so lexus delays shipment a week and sends out nanos, apple delays MBP's by a month and nothing. Granted a car is more than a laptop but still.

uh..how are they delayed? When they were released, it was known they would ship sometime this month. Its only the 10th.

Granted a car is more than a laptop but still. We're talking about roughly a $40,000 vehicle versus a $3,000 laptop. That is a HUGE difference in money. If you were a successful business owner, you'd recognize that a customer whose $40K purchase was delayed as opposed to a 'mere' $3K (over ten times the difference), then you'd most likely attempt to appease the first customer.
