    I have the surround sound pack fitted and it is brilliant! So punchy and much better than the standard system (even with the Sat Nav system fitted)Highly recommended!

    given you can pick up a pair of alpines for 20, seems such a shame that they fit cars with such poor speakers as standard!!

    Correct. Same as in every other smart. Nice to see a 'real' upgrade package eh?

    Curiously I went to the dealers yesterday to check out the fortwo ED, the salesman was boasting the surround package until I told the the speakers are the same and as rubbish as the standard ones.

    Ok, thanks for all your comments, I'm waiting for my local dealer to phone to let me know when they are getting in a demonstrator with the surround sound fitted. I could be waiting some time!

    Hi all, well I took the plunge and ordered the factory fit surround sound system. Along with theatre lighting, daytime running lights, the 20kW fast charger, cruise control and the variable regeneration controls.
    The car took over a year to arrive but was well worth the wait.
    When I took delivery I was initially really disappointed with the sound system, it sounded awful. But a few moments playing with the settings and I found that it had been set to some really weird settings. Set it back to something more normal and it now sounds great. It doesn't do thumping bass but does produce a really clear sound with good ambience and positioning. It feels like you are in the music.

    Hi, 3 years on and I'm still really pleased with the surround sound system. played with the settings some more and now it sounds great for both rock and classical music. Along with the silence of the electric drive, it makes the car a real pleasure to drive!
