Are the sound systems used in BA Mark IIs and BF's going to feature MP3 compatibility for CD's?

AFAIK, none of the BAs have MP3 capability in their factory H/Us. You can bodge something together utilising the Auxillary input they have but that's hardly an ideal solution. As for the BF, who knows. It's a neat feature to have though, to be sure.

yea cos ford spend money investing in worthwhile upgrades, hyundai have no other marketing option so they ad $50 tricky parts that look flash and sound as good as the car itself......

Yeah, but i'd cost them next to nothing to do.

Heck I can make a MP3 player from parts for well under $100, in quantity it'd be miniscule. And a feature I'm most definately interested in. I've had a MP3 head unit since 2001, and prior to that a car computer.
