Standard or Priemium Sound?

Found this site today, after yesterday ordering my new BA XR8.

Have one question thats burning my mind!

I have two young kids, (under 2) and thought I don't need loud sound, however i am wondering what the difference is between the two sound systems displays? I know about the colour and 150 watts and subbie? but is it that much better? and do the displays show different things?

I am itching to get the car, after years of German 2.0 litres, it's time to get back to the basics - V8 and Proudly Australian.

Plus you wont get a 3rd party head unit to fit the falcon, so its a case of now or never.

confused

There is another prob, If I option it into the car, it will push the car over the luxury car limit, this then means paying an additional 35% luxury car tax (I THINK) on the overall puchase price!

Is premium sound worth it?

First of all welcome philbie, i'm sure the forums will give you a wealth of information!

The premuim sound is well worth it, the sound is better and you get the dual climate control & large colour screen too over the standard XR grey screen. Being a $900 (i think) option you may be able to haggle the price with the dealer to keep it under the margin

Not sure what Rodderz means, it's probably coming across wrong... You can only get dual zone climate on the Fairmonts, LWB cars and the GT-P.

But yeah, you get the bigger screen, and it's in colour.

yes climate control only comes with the fairmont ghia, and gt-p. only difference I can see between the two is 150 watts vs 100 watts, tweeters in the a piller, and a subbie middle back parcel shelf. and a 6 stack.
Screen is in colour, but doesn't display any extra info to the standard system.

rodderz is correct $900 option.
