I keep thinking about picking up a DICE, but since I have a 2005 car that will play MP3 discs, I'll probably just save my money.

One of the better stock audio system setups I've seen in a car of this class is in my brother's 2007 A4 (B7), which has an in-dash six disc CD changer that will play MP3s right off the disc. Not only this, but it has a large display screen that will read out the name of the song and allow you to cycle through album name, artist name etc, and a full featured menu system that will let you browse the disc as such.

The BMW headunit, for the sake of comparison, will still allow you to select songs by folder/album (it works the same way the CD changer does, where the first number is the folder/album instead of the disc and the second is the track number), but it won't show the name of the folder or the tracks that it's playing.
