Bose Audio, Standard - 2012 FIAT 500 Long-Term Road Test

2012 Fiat 500 Sport: Bose Audio, Standard

$6,300 for the Bang & Olufsen sound system in our long-term 2012 Audi A8L?? For that price, the A8 should buy you dinner before you drive it, and then make you breakfast the following morning.

Our long-term 2012 Fiat 500 Sport, on the other hand, has a Bose Audio system standard (on the Sport, Lounge, and Gucci; optional on the Pop.) The Fiat materials say they are Bose Energy Efficient Series with 6 speakers and a sub.

The system sounds just OK; I find that Bose systems are hit and miss. And this one doesn't sound that great -- but it's included in the $19,200 price!

What's your favorite premium-branded audio system and how much would you be willing to pay for it?
