Okay I know it is not the best solution, but I have an '02 and I don't think there is an alternative. That said, what is the best solution for playing MP3's and possibly an IPOD?

Is there a specific brand or set up that is superior to the rest?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Honestly I have that...got it off ebay and for like 30 bucks it's not all that bad. I mostly use it when I'm going a trip where I can set it up and leave it..for around town I don't bother with it. If you have high bit rate songs of course it will sound better.

I have that one and it is just OK. The issue I found was with finding an FM station that had no interference. I was amazed how hard it was. I finally found two empty stations and within a few days a new COUNTRY station took one of them. The sound is OK but there is occasional interference around some power lines.
