I'm fairly certain that I'm going to get an '08 300C.

But, I'm confused on what is standard and what option packages are on cars delivered to the dealers. I know what options are available, but not sure about how they are packaged together.

How much of an upgrade are some of them (is the Sound II really better than basic? iGIG really better than basic? etc)

TIA

Sound II includes the 8 BOSE speakers, 368 watt amp instead of 6 speakers.A great system to get unless you are going to put in your own stereo mods.My gig for peoplewho have tons of MP3 music to put on the hard drive.

Bose? I sure as hell hope not! That would be a major reason NOT to get it :)

Boston Acoustics :)

Interesting they've gone back to the BA7. Wonder what happened to the Kicker??? The BA7 is an excellent system BTW IMO. I have it in my car and love it.

HID headlights are not part of the Protection Group II package, despite what the Chrysler website says. They have to be ordered separately.
I found out the hard way.

excellent!

That is what I found out also at the dealer. When they were clicking the boxes when we ordered my car Protection II did not grey out the HIDs. That meant to me that it didn't come with them.

I didn't really want the extra airbags and didn't feel like paying over 1000 dollars for an air filter and reverse park sensors. I am going to put the air filter in my self. It only costs 40 bucks! I can live with out the reverse park sensors, if you get that close you weren't looking.

I almost fell off my chair when I heard Bose but I think we've hit on the "Dr's" mistake enough :biggrin:

The Boston Acoustic system is very good and worth the money. I would say it is improved from the 05 that I had, they must have retuned it.

When I ordered my 08, the HIDs are separate from PG2, so I can confirm that but I ordered mine really early so things might have changed as they often do.

The Web site says otherwise though, so I'd have them check with Chrysler to see if that's changed.

Thanks for the responses thus far, this info is helping.

It looks like Nav & Sound II is worthwhile. It also sounds like a bunch of cars are being delivered with this option.

Ok, signed the papers last night - should pick up car tomorrow.

I went with the Nav & Sound II.

Upon further review, I think I could have done better on the price. :-(

apparently, I suck at buying stuff. :)

I have the luxury grp II pkg,not sure what they call wood accents as mine is the same as the stadard c model....as is my steering wheel.All c models have power mirrors....so thats no different.The signals,puddle lamps in the mirrors and the dim on passenger side,and the heated rear seats is all it should list.They make it sound like more than it is.Only wood I got is on the wheel and shifter....and when I punch it well...more wood
