Doesn't Seem like many replies to this thread. Anybody got comments? I think it sounds like a good idea, more so a strategic alliance to further market and take over more market share and combine two strong firms and putting them together.

Panasonic makes solid stereo equipment, it will be cool to hear these Fender products in the upcoming VWs. I wish it was going to be implemented in the Golf R. Glad we will be getting the Dynaudio option though still.
