It’s the only [COMMODITY CONSTRAINED] item on my build. I’m essentially paying $2300 for a heated steering wheel. I’m asking my high end audio guy if there’s benefit (or cost) to the B&O system since I plan to upgrade it. Need to do some soul searching and see if I can’t get my smooth brain back down to High Package. That’s it. That’s the entire post.

Don't forget the Garage Door Opener.

I went with High Package. IMHO, it's better to just wear driving gloves when it's cold, and check out the audio system first, before ordering better components from Crutchfield or just having a local audio place upgrade speakers / add sub for less.

It's not late availability. It could be "commodity constrained". That's a distinction that people need to start understanding.

And here I am trying to justify moving up from standard to high. I feel your pain... in reverse?

The main reason I would want the lux package is the wireless phone charger. It really should be part of the mid package. Why offer wireless android auto/Apple CarPlay on all trims standard but make you get the top of the line package to get a wireless charger?

I’ll give ‘em fiddy duckets for the garage door opener. $75 for the wireless charging. $100 for the extra USB. Three DOGECOIN for the advanced Cruise Control.

Im in the same boat. I love audio, so the B&O would be great. I know that the standard 6 speakers won't cut it, and the difference from high to lux im questioning how much an install would be anyway if I did it somewhere else.

Do you guys have any insight on a rough guestimate of how much an upgraded stereo would be? And how easy would it even be to tie into sync 4. Add an amp and a sub.?

The way i see it, the wireless charger and the heated steeting wheel are just a plus

The heated steering wheel is the best first world problem solved ever, gloves are not better! 😂

How and Why would you upgrade the B&O radio system? Like, seriously, what’s it lacking that you would be able to hear inside a Bronco? It’s not a rolling music studio or ENT quiet room for testing your hearing, after all.

I ask because the B&O is just about the only thing that is driving me up into the Lux. Otherwise I think High is all I need.

so what’s the point of paying for B&O just to rip it out?

I REALLY THINK IT'S ALL GOING TO GO BETTER THAN EXPECTED.........I WOULD EXPECT THAT THEY ARE ON THEIR SUPPLIERS PRETTY HARD.........
