If the family is riding then it's usually around 20-30. When I'm solo then it gets to 45 frequently. I didn't get the ML as I would have had to wait 90 days to order it. I believe the main difference is an added subwoofer to the trunk deck but maybe someone can set me straight on that. Later I may add an aftermarket sub in the trunk to fill in the low's. My main concern is not taking up much of the trunk space.

That's what those things are!!
Personally Love loud jams. But in this car the acustics are so incredible, its cool to leave the volume between 20-30 most of the time. But hey, when you pop in the MP3 cds with 180-500 songs on them (depending on your encode level), some volume is good....
REAL GOOD!!

I am sure you guys have already noticed by now that the "need" to add the ipod (or any other MP3 player) to the IS is not "really" necessary due to one fact that the already kick arse stereo system will play MP3 files burned onto your cdr media and i am assuming that you may be able to do the same with the dvd nav setup (unconfirmed).

Trust me, it works and my sales guy had no idea. When tested it and it worked... I do not know what he said for the next 20 minutes prior to me signing the big check for my New Toy. Would love to know about the dvd side tho-- anyone tried it?

If you have a 650MB CDR and MP3's average about 4.5MB each that's about a 145 songs per CD.

Hey that's great. No need for me to buy a MP3 player then. I have a CD RW but I've never burned a CD.
