You know I think the sound quality is great, and you can ADJUST the volume ya know.
Agreed! Love CA, and the bluetooth is probably my most frequenly used feature. Be crazy not to get both of these...even if you pay for bluetooth separate from the premium package.

Remember the OP question and situation. Trying to SAVE $$$ and/or determine/justify the purchase. So I must reinforce that this premium package can/will add $50/mn to the monthly payments X 60mns purchase or lease term. So I don't think his post was about convenience. If you add $40 to someones payment, it can become a deterrant. I don't know, I'm not a bawler!

CA is $500 and BMW Asisst w/ Bluetooth is something like $685 (I don't remember exactly). Adding those to a lease might increase PMT like $20-25. I'm not an advocate of the premium pack (i didn't get it mysefl). I happen to really like the leatherette seating, so premium pack was not on my top agenda. I just feel that if you're going to get a $45K+ car, you should get a couple features you will find useful. If $25/month is going to push you over the budget, you really should consider something else for the time being.
