Maybe. Its just that I've been posting this same information on boards like this for Jeep, Ford, Corvettes, Titans, Infinitis, VWs, etc. for years and it still is a common misconseption. So many people are dupped into getting the stereo crap the dealers offer and paying through the nose. The worst I can verify, as I was working as an installer at a stereo shop at the time, was the C4 corvette BOSE. It was in the vettes from 84-96. Chevy charged $1500 for the upgrade in the late 80s. Turns out the speakers cost $3 each, amps about $10 to make, and deck not much more. Also, if they had spent $500 at an aftermarket shop at that time, they would have had a system that would have kicked the BOSE's but. Same applies today. Car companies have gotten wise though and now no longer offer stereo deletes and bundle stereo upgrades with other high demand options so you can't avoid them easily. I have the BOSE, and wish I didn't, but resigned myself to it as I wanted the LE, which had it standard. The extra $750 for the Bose on the SE is just throwing more good money after bad.ftnssn said::urock: little harsh don't you think.
No attack at you and I apologize if it read that way, just venting frustration. :noworriesftnssn said:fair enough, but i already knew what you were saying but I was just answering their question about mp3s and trying to differentiate between the two players. I'm actually an installer myself.
