Harman Kardon Sound System.

I've added this to my order. Have I wasted my money or is it the Dog Ball Bags.
I love a good sound system I do.
Has any of you had the fortunate opportunity of sound testing it?
I'd be very interested to hear your opinions.

I tested it during test driving a demo car from the dealer. I did it also with my iPhone and my 1st reaction was: I did not know that my iPhone could give such a cristal sound in Bluetooth...
Then I selected it when ordering

The H/K is good for being a factory fitted sound system. If you enjoy listening to music in your car this option is a must.

HK sound system is very good but I think I've yet to get the best out of it as play music via y cable iPod and iPhone, putting music on USB or burning on to CD will improve sound, what do you think?

Isn't it possible to connect your iPhone/iPod with the original Apple cable? It works for me in my father's 5-series and I get album artwork too using that cable. Or does that only work with professional navigation systems?
