Don't know if all you guys have seen this commercial, it cracks me up!

I've never associated Fender with anything other than guitars, and certainly not with "hi fi" mobile electronics.
-B- said:I don't know why, I guess people see Fender they think music. VW/Audi also uses Dynaudio (or at least did) but I guess that name wasn't common enough to garner success and sell to the public in a TV commercial. Just marketing, someone from Fender probably sat in the car and said make it sound like this and they slapped a name on. I can't imagine they actually manufacture the stuff, I can't imagine it sounds any better than the Dynaudio stuff, or the Bose stuff, or the JBL/Mark Levinson stuff or any other name badged car audio stuff. Not saying it doesn't sound good....but It's a marketing thing.

This is pissing me off as well. My Saab dealer was able to hook me up with an independent shop, in Pennsylvania, that could replace the hardened rubber wheels in my CD player and keep the original stereo head working (with a $45 undocking/redocking fee just to take the player in/out of the car! :angry-cussingblack: ).Batman said:^ this is becoming more and more a losing proposition with all manufacturers anyway Yesfan. Each year with all new models (practically) total vehicle function runs through the radio as the main interface...
