Ditto. I ripped my 1992 remastered led zeppelin boxset in various formats for a sample of titles, and honestly, AAC/MP3 256k VBR and above was no different to my ears than than WAV for those titles. I don't have premium sound, but I really don't think it matters either way, EPS or no EPS, the stereo options from the factory aren't that great and probably not worth the hard drive space and effort to do a lossless library for the car, IMHO.

Amen. iPod and glove box USB port get album art and internal HDD doesn't. That is just lame. Pure and simple, just lame.
