"If music is important to you"

Both my wife and #1 daughter are musicians (no, they both have day jobs, too!).

Several cars and years ago, I added an upmarket and aftermarket system to my wife's car. Her review of the sound was, in effect, "meh".

Since then I haven't bothered with car stereo upgrades. If they can't tell the difference, I sure can't. That said, my BMW's standard radio head has been replaced several times plus there have been several software upgrades under warranty. It's hard to imagine that HK's QC could be any worse.
E91 26K miles, 6-speed, RWD, Alpine, Terra, Xenons, ZSP, ZCW, ZPP, PDC, CA, alarm, M shifter and M brake handle, Euro rear fog light switch, Euro aspheric mirrors, rear power outlets, Euro split armrest, V-1 inside rear headrest, Cocomats (back to the 1970s!), $10 clutch stop mod. CYHY integrated dash cam (latest project).

Others include: Volvo V70 T5 5-speed 212K, original clutch. (Soon to depart. )
