If music is important to you

Go sample it with some of your music both loud and soft .
Be sure to avoid the 2010 and early 2011 model years with the base system.(for the US its not Hi Fi)
I like to call the Hi Fi system the I can almost live with this system.
It falls apart if you turn it up.
The Highs are Harsh , it has a hole in the midrange and not much bass.
One guy described it as having the perfect mudrange speakers.
If you don't want to modify get the L7 . If you want to put 1 to 2 k into and aftermarket
system you can put together something that sounds better and the Hi Fi is cheaper and easier to add
stuff to . I don't think you have to have Sirius Radio with the car at least you didn't use to and it was
kind of unusual.

Its important to realize there are three systems world wide avoid the base system in US 2010 and 2011.
This is the ampless tweeterless base system that has been used world wide for some years
