"Every time I get in a loaner BMW the bass is cranked up to where it's muddy and way overdone." that's my experience as well, even as recent as the last service loaner.
But I figured not everyone play music, or had exposure to the sound engineering. So really the best thing people can do is to grab a few of their fav records, go to a music studio (or a friend with real near/mid field studio monitors) and carefully listen to how the record sounds like on professionally calibrated systems. Then compare, train your ears.
Or just ignore and enjoy it the way you like it, it is meant to be fun anyway no need to complicate!
