I have the Bose Premium in my '04 LE. I agree, very underwhelming. All my speakers work etc, I compare this system to the SC901 in my 99 Volvo C70 cabriolet. No comparison. The SC901 is FAR superior in EVERY way. I thought about replacing the original Bose HU, but don't know if its worth it or not. Mind you, I took a trip to GA earlier this summer and I was ok with the sound. Just not what I would expect from a "premium" system!
