I bought the standard audio because threads I read suggested that: Standard was "poor", Premium "expensive" and maybe not superb, and as a company car there are benefits to keeping the purchase price down and "upgrading" later. I thought the standard audio might be OK, but sadly it isn't. We aren't audiophiles who can tell the difference between this fatter-speaker-wire and that gold-connector but Wifee and I are disappointed with the audio quality of the Standard package. We have below-expectation radio reception (crackle on FM which we haven't had a problem with in previous cars, although in fairness we have had Bose audio (option I presume) fitted to the last few iterations of Golf and Audi before that) and a lack of "depth" of the sound. I would appreciate any suggestions please - not sure if this has any specific UK twist, but thought I'd start in the UK forum first.
