If the Audi has a Bose - I'll stick with Logic 7. Sacrificing fidelity for volume isn't my goal - why not just buy an external amp if it's yours?

Speaking of Logic 7, has anyone played around with the equalizer to see if flat is really "flat" i.e., reproduced as recorded or if some tweaking must be done to get to the real "flat"? I realize...

The Logic 7 system isn't bassy at all - there is much more thump coming out of the Rockford Fosgate system in my Nissan (and that is with bass turned slightly below flat). I do feel the Logic 7 is...

I agree that $475 to $500 a month is a far more likely outcome. Good luck!

NoCal is hot as well - the dealer here has never had stock - all are sold before they hit the lot.

I did the time format change while in the time function itself. I didn't see the general format fuction you just listed when I was scrolling with the turn stalk switch. How do I access it?

I don't know what the wattage is in the standard system, but there's more difference than just power. The Logic 7 has upgraded speakers too (and 13 v. 10 total). Still, most seem to think the...

Also, the E90 has a much better stereo than the E46! I had the E36 M3 - it was great - but I think the E90 is just as good or better (too soon to be definite!).

You know damn well what you said. Cars aren't "ignorant". It'a shame you don't have the ouevos to apologize and move on, wise guy. Even now you're too busy trying to be cute to act like a man.

The object of this thread is 05 Mustang v. 06 E90, not E90 v. old BMW or 05 Mustang v. 67 Shelby GT350.

Do us all a favor and keep your sarcastic remarks to yourself.

Actually, many people buy 3 series primarily because of the handling, which is why you will find so many posts on here where people turn their noses up at front-wheel drive cars.

I also believe the 3 and 5 share the same Logic 7, though I don't know for sure. The 7 series has a more powerful amp.
