Subject: Thanks for good advice and a question...

Hi People! Just wanted to say thanks for the good advice I got by following this group. I was looking at a 1992 9000 Turbo CD automatic which looked like a great deal. The two things that bothered me were the non-foldable rear seats and the fact that it is an automatic. Based on your advice, I kept looking, even though I fell in love with the car and the condition was great. And... I found EXACTLY what I was looking for! Yeah! A 9000 Turbo CSE (1992) with everything, white (yes, I know: TCS...) for only a little bit more than the other one. I drove it and it blew my mind... Wooooheeee! New just about everything. Bought it and am taking delivery when the paperwork's over next Thursday. Can't wait, of course... Okay, that's enough enthusiasm... Now a question. The 9000 has the original 9000 Sound System (Cassette & Radio), which sounds really great, but the 900 I have now (and am passing on) has a newly installed radio/CD with navigation system and so on (Blaupunkt RNS 149). Is the 9000 sound system so incredibly cool that I should pass on the 900 with the nav-system installed or is it a little out of date by now and should I put the nav-system (with CD changer) into the new 9000? Didn't have the time to listen to the 9000 sound system, 'cos I was enjoying the purr of the engine on the alpine climbs on the test drive ;-). Just wondering how 'good' the 9000 sound system is and whether I just have to hang on to it or pass it on to my brother in law who has a 9000i without a radio (yet...). Can't judge how much the 9000 sound system might have 'aged' ... Thanks and see ya! DaniS
