    I put a heap of music on a 16gb SD card in my MK 7 Highline and it sounds fine. Easy to access through display menu. Sound system sounds very good but of course car acoustics will always sound ok particularly the base notes.

    I'd like to know more about that as well, or a better solution for a MK7 wagon.

    This post - http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...1#post86246969 seems to indicate pretty definitively that it will not fit in the R's.

    I am upgrading all my speakers on Monday, retaining the 5.8 factory head unit. Opting for Morel speakers all round with Nakamichi 8" sub, plugged straight in, no amp.

    I'll update with a review soon....

Previously I owned an Audi Q3 when I lived in the US and the standard audio was a lot better than the MK7. All my previous cars have either an upgraded system from the factory or I upgrade them myself, I was surprise that with the MK7 R you don't even have the option to upgrade it from the factory here in Australia.

    As soon as I finish my other upgrades (come on APR, release those downpipes for the R), then I'm definitely upgrading the audio.
    Although I was coming from a 95 corolla, I did test a lot of cars before settling on the MK7 and the sound quality is actually very impressive. The best sound system I have ever heard was an upgraded system in an e60 series but given how much was forked over for it, you would expect nothing less. For a pretty much entry level vehicle the MK7 sound system blew me away. I have gotten used to it now and now I'm starting to pick faults with it and now I'm wishing it was a little better, but to be honest, the amount I paid for it, forget about it, it's pretty spectacular.

    I didn't come from a 95 Corolla (more like a 2004 VZ Calais with factory sub) but I agree. The sound is pretty bloody good and meets my expectations for a daily drive.

    They sell a sub that has a built in amp that also runs the rest of the speakers. Sounds much better. They should have done it as standard I think.
