Spend the bread on the premium sound unless you don't really care about music all that much. You will also thank me once you play a DVD on the NAV screen. Don't skimp on the sound trust me.

I have seen CB with dark bamboo and the dark wood. Both look good, either choice will be nice.

Premium sound package is $1800 for D. Since I am already getting 6FL, the cost will be $1400. And yes, I have requested my CA to delay my order so that I can get a September build for the updated Bluetooth and iPod/USB. From what I could gather, I may not be able to use $1000 from the ultimate drive event, which expires on 9/30, if I wait for a September build and not be able to take delivery by 9/30. I am willing to take a chance for the upgrade...

I do love listening to music and am pretty much decided to get the premium sound at this point.

I am still not quite sure about the wood trim Light Popular I have seen in pictures is pretty good to me, though not with CB. I also like Dark Bamboo. I would really like to see CB/LP in pictures or in person before I make up my mind...

My deal with the dealer is $x above invoice. So, it makes it easy to add/subtract options.
