I will not miss the dealerships as I almost never went to one but I will miss the fresh blood that a good car line brings to the SFF.....
Actually the federal mandate is that parts are still made available up to 10 years after the last model year. So in this case S-Series parts HAVE to be made available for sale until 2012; not 2017.

This is for ALL car manufacturers. Anytime a car is stopped from manufactuer; the parts have to be made available up to 10 years after the last model year was produced.
