Bluetooth compresses data and sound, not to mention natural interference with other electronics and such. It doesn't sound anywhere near as good as a direct connected device with the head unit doing the sound processing such as USB/SD card. But then they will never sound as good as a factory music CD either.

Nope completely wireless. As long as you have bluetooth on your phone all I have to do is walk into my truck, start her up, and begin driving. Phone automatically connects and plays my music Or my girlfriends iphone, either way. Never tried battling to see who would win the bluetooth connection though haha

ALSO just bought myself my very first "tool set". None of my family in Cali do anything with their hands, and never work on cars so I've got to start from scratch.

So that brings my tally to:

1 craftsman 3 ton jack
2 craftsman 3 ton jack stands
1 craftsman creeper
Pioneer stereo
192 pc. craftsman tool set

And only into it all about $250

I havent had any interference issues... infact I've never heard of anyone running into problems with that and I know of at least 5 people running similar systems. Heck all the new cars come stock with it, my dad's brand new Ford Edge is made for bluetooth connectivity.
It sounds great to my ears, but im not an audio snob so to each his own

The ease of use and lack of clutter to me is worth any (if there is) negligible depreciation of sound quality.

Rock sliders, DOM for an exo cage, Doublers, new steering linkage or hi-steer,

What's on my Christmas list? A smoother shifting transmission.

Hopefully the flush this weekend takes care of it, thus giving me a very merry Christmas haha
