Any suggestions as to a good non RFT that would be siginificantly quieter than my current Pirellis PZero's? Since I have 20" M Sport wheels, my choices are more limited than 19's.

2013 7er audio systems

Anyone listen to the premium audio system on the 2013's? Wondering if there's any improvement made with the refresh. Is the B&O system worth the extra $$$? Thanks.
