      1. I will loose overall sound quality compared to stock Monsoon system
      2. Streaming BlueTooth audio will loose even more sound quality.
      3. It will not charge my iPhone 4 via USB
      4. When using the bluetooth phone the person on the other end can hardly hear you.

      So is this even worth spending almost $400 out-the-door for this unit.?

      I do need to replace my current Monsoon deck, so I'm starting to consider if buying a used Monsoon deck for under $100 and simply wiring Aux input to be able to play music from my iPhone would be the smarter option.
      1. Sound quality over the stock monsoon system is improved.
      2. streaming bluetooth does not have the same quality as when you actually plug into the radio
      3. correct it does not charge the iphone it was not designed for that (yes we all wish it was)
      4. I have not personally had an issue with people hearing me, we have installed 100's of units and I have only heard a few people with the issue. I have a 2010 GMC truck with factory bluetooth and some times I need to hang up and call back again to get better quality. Electronics get wacky sometimes but we really don't see many if any issues with these units.

      This post concerned me a bit:
      http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...lity-w-Monsoon

      I am also wondering how do I know exactly which model of OEM head Unit I have. I have read people mention Monsoon vs non- monsoon, Premium and non-premium, Single DIN, Double DIN. How do I know what I have. As far as I know mine runs with an OEM Amp also...

      You have a double din monsoon in your 2003. You would need the BT radio, antenna adapter and harness adapter.

      Yeah, the sound quality definitely improved for me with this radio. BT streaming has gotten a lot better for me as well. I believe apple put out some updates that helped.

      Still have these? I'm in NJ, really close to Summit. How much installed into a 20thAE? I don't care much for aftermarket radio and like the this factory unit.

      yes I have plenty, our service dept. gets 1 hour to install these units or if you want to install yourself we can pop your old radio out for you before you leave to make your install a little easier.

      Just make sure to ask for JC when you come in and I will prepin the harness for you. I will be here today and friday until 5pm. If you want to pick up on saturday I won't be here but I can still set everything up for you and you can pick up from one of the other guys here just shoot me a message and I will make sure everything is ready when you come.

      I really wish we could but on top of our everyday 28% discount it does not leave us much room to work with.
