i see a lot of people ordering the 6-disc cd changer. i don't think it's worth to get the 6-disc cd changer. why pay all that extra money when you could just buy like an ipod and have just as many songs, or if you have a cd player you could plug that in to the outlet. plus you dont have to spend all that money on cds if you have an ipod. but the 7 speaker monsoon upgrade is well worth it, especially with that speed control function where is speeds the music up to compensate the outside sounds at high speeds. i have a huge sub box so it would be useless in the sky's "trunk" if you want to call it. so the mini sub that comes with the package is a solid investment.

I'm getting it because I don't always have my iPod with me and sometimes I just can't find anything I want to hear on Sirius. A bank of 6 burned MP3 CDs will give me plenty of music to fall back on.

I too was against the 6-disc changer, until I read this post and pondered it awhile...http://www.skyroadster.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2391&page=2
Now I will order the 6-disc...don't need my ragtop torn to shreds.

6 disc changer still can be usefull, what if a friend brings his CD's along a trip? Options are always good. My Radio is going to be AM/FM/XM with the 6-Disc and the Aux port for my iPod, that way I am free to choose how I want to listen to my music!

My reason for going the way of the single cd player with MP3 is not having to carry about all those cd's when mp3 hold more songs. But I guess with 6 mp3 discs in the radio and lord knows how many songs available I would have enough music in the car for about 2 or 3 months without repeating one.:)

I have it in my Escape and I love it. I want to be able to put a couple of mixed MP3 CD's in and a couple of origional disks as well. It gives me lots of selection when I make the drive to Northern Ontario and there arn't any FM (or AM) stations in range.

I was going to get the XM option but I was a little worried it would be obsolete in a short time. Besides I don't like the idea of paying for Radio.

It took a while for people to get used to the idea of paying for TV too. I first got Sirius 3 years ago as a gift and now would never go back. The original content is wonderful, not to mention the commercial free music.

That XM option might be a good thing for driving up in northern Ontario. As there surely isn't much to listen too.

I agree with you... i have a 6 disc cd changer in the BMW M3... and it is a pain in the butt sometimes....... well, first of all it is in the trunk.... i keep my cd case in there so, when i am on a roadtrip and stop for gas/food etc.... i open the trunk and change my selection....... just a hassle..... to me.. MY OPINION........ i always change my mind on what i want to listen to anyway.. so one day i may want oldies... or country.. .... then.... for some reason... i go to the newer stuff.... nickleback, maybe... older eminem.... and.. i got WAY too many cd's to go through as my moods change... YEAH... i am sure.... SOME of you are thinking... OMGosh... A WOMAN....CANT MAKE UP HER MIND.... ok... ok.. i admit it.. BLONDE...... and... then there is the pain in the butt of my ipod...... i have a huge selection... variable genre's...... over 1000 songs... but, i get bored with them.. and the time it takes to get rid of them and get more or... different titles on there.. is just a pain in the butt.... OH NO... i am ranting again..:willy: . maybe it is nappy time.... SkyBaby-07
