Default New Automotive Electrical Voltage Standard

I just read something, and apparently the US and European auto manufacturers agreed to change the voltage of automotive electrical systems from 12V at the battery, and 14V at the Alternator, to 36V at the Battery and 42V at the alternator!!

Thats insane! Pretty soon were going to have to put "Warning : High Voltage" stickers on our cars!!

That'* gonna make A LOT of stuff for our cars more valuable I think. LIke HU'*, amps, anything that'* an electrical component in the car. And the prices for our stuff will drop after a lil while I would think because of the demand for parts for the new system??? Keep getting more power that and I'm gonna need to drive a power pole in the a$$ of my car lol
