I though I throw this out after looking at another thread. When you're driving do you listen to the sound system? I find that I'm concentrating pretty hard thus I can't talk on the phone or listen to the radio it just all becomes back ground noise so I leave it off.
When cruising around town I like talk radio. When attempting to hypermile I will turn on the ipod and listen to something soothing. Soothing music also puts the traffic into perspective, and removes any desire for me to go 80mph
Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't - when I don't I am amazed at how quiet the xB is . . . there is more transmission whine than engine noise. Then there are times when I crank up the 160watt 6 speaker system and play some MP3 music off the CD.
Yeah but my ears still work so I don't need that many watts. You probably think it's funny but when cars with these super sub whoofers are sitting in traffic outside my office while I am trying to work and stuff on my shelves are rattling, it is hard for me to work and I am on the second floor of a brick building.
