RE: Never been able to justify diverting that much money to a car...

There was a time when Toyota had a base stereo system and offered an upgrade. I don't know how they're doing it today.

The upgrade stereo was about $1000 and well worth it. I passed on the upgrade years ago in my 4Runner and regretted it. I ended up letting a car stereo shop upgrade the stereo and speakers which cost me about $1000 but it never matched the audio quality of the 4Runners with factory upgraded stereo.

So it's not just a luxury car thing. Additionally, the decision to upgrade might depend on the car itself. I had a sport coupe with manual transmission and some aftermarket work for performance. I suppose I could have upgraded the stereo but I preferred hearing the engine rev and the exhaust note. ;-)
