You guys pass on the left in FLA? Blinkers?? In Mass your sentence would have read: You come up on somebody doing 70 in the left lane and your cut ovah to the middle lane and the cah takes off on ya.I love Adaptive Cruise Control on my current Ford and I'll never get another car without it. You can cruise down the freeway and not worry about adjusting your cruise speed. Car in front too slow? Hit your left blinker and the car automatically accelerates when you change lanes. It's even more useful in heavy traffic where you just adapt to the speed of the car in front no matter what they do. In terms of safety it also allows your mind to not need as much thinking so you don't get tired or distracted as easily.
The 12" screen is a want (not so much a need) for me too. All the safety features do give me an insurance discount too.I'm getting the High package as the 12" screen is a need of mine so the cost jump to the Lux package isn't significant. Those of you that are opting for the Lux package or those that are familiar with the technologies included (ACC, Lane Assist, etc.), what are the benefits of these features? Are features such as Lane Assist a benefit with regards to insurance costs? I have no need for a heated steering wheel as I choose to reside in the lower latitudes. I'm not familiar with the technologies as I still ride a dinosaur as it pertains to a vehicle. I'm not opposed to being convinced that I should spring for the cost, but I don't know what value they bring.
Yes, there are. Now, I grew in the Poconos and NEPA. Florida doesn't have mountains like up North, but I would characterize the hills in the panhandle as even more than just rolling hills. It really is surprising when traveling I-10.Hol’ up. There are hills in Florida? I had absolutely no idea.
The panhandle is so un-Florida I love Destin and really the whole Redneck Riviera, Tallahassee, inland up to the border, it’s all pretty nice.Yes, there are. Now, I grew in the Poconos and NEPA.

I live in the capital of East Florida and just a bit west of Lake City, the hills start. Whenever I travel to Houston, I always forget how long the panhandle extends. Back when there was an East/West Florida, West Florida extended all the way to Baton Rouge.The panhandle is so un-Florida I love Destin and really the whole Redneck Riviera, Tallahassee, inland up to the border, it’s all pretty nice.
I agree with you! My reasoning is speaker placement... Better stock sound but when i upgrade (just the speakers) later I'll have 10... 9+sub placements for better speakers! Will be the better option when the roof is off- I imagine it will be like a sound system on a boat.I know a few people who are crazy obsessive audiophiles. As I understand it good sound comes down to, largely, 2 things.
1. The audio components themselves.
B&O makes some fantastic stuff! But they also now make some stuff that the B&O of old would not let out into the world. They put their name on laptop speakers now....
Comes down a lot to how much ford is budgeting for them I think. B&O has stuff at a buch of different price points. They make car systems for aston, bentley, lambo, Audi and ford.
So while the bentley and the Ford have a system from the same company I bet there's isn't a single similarity besides the name on the grille.
2. The space the sound is heard in
The room, or vehicle, matters almost as much as the components. Speaker placement, the surfaces involved in the space, what else is in the room is all crucial. A vehicle with a removable top, even with it closed isn't exactly the best listening experience. And I don't think it'll have any speakers in the doors either. It'll sound different with the soft vs MIC vs MOD too.
I have no real knowledge in this next part but I bet a difference between some of a b&o systems in their other partners vs a Ford is how involved they are in the process. I bet bentley turns the whole car over to b&o to tune every aspect of a system per vehicle for the best possible sound. Again, I'm mostly speaking out of my ass here but I bet the components for a Ford are just going to be a supplier relationship rather than something entirely custom.
So, accepting the space for the bronco is probably going to be a pretty lousy sound stage and it likely won't be specifically tuned to it so I'm not expecting a fantastic experience.
1. I'm sure it'll be better than stock.
2. Hopefully ford doesn't cheap out too much and b&o is giving them some decent stuff, hopefully sharing more similarities to an Audi system vs an HP laptop and that it can get loud without a ton of loss in fidelity!
I'm guessing aftermarket will be better choice for sound, focal for sure but maybe even some mid priced alpine gear would be an upgrade but I'm probably going with lux because messing with modern day car systems that are so integrated isn't something I want to mess with

If you just have 6 you will need to turn up the volume a lot more. Louder and uneven sound.
The 10 could provide better sound. Less decibels. Less hearing loss.
