So, from the replies to the thread so far, I've determined that I'm not at all worried about the 5MT and any issues like what the 6AT suffers from.

My only real decision, it seems, is whether or not to get the MFT screen and Sony 10 speaker system.

I didn't get the sony stereo or MFT. I don't miss having either. I might upgrade my stereo someday to better speakers with more power but not until something breaks

I only have the 6-speaker system, but I find it quite adequate. It's a really clean sounding system, but the bass won't blow you away, that's for sure. What bass there is is nicely defined, though. I occasionally long for a sub like I had in my previous car, and I'll probably cave on this when the weather is better and I can spend some time outside working on the car. I find the cabin quiet enough, even at highway cruise speeds, that I don't need to turn up my music too loud in order to be satisfied, which definitely lessens strain on my ears on long drives. I listen to a lot of metal, hardcore, and aggressive hip-hop, so it can be QUITE fatiguing. The Sync system with the 4-inch screen suits me quite well, too. It recognizes voice commands for album and song names that are basically complete jibberish. High On Fire's "De Vermis Mysteriis" album was recognized on my first try, for example.

I've seen a lot of people gripe about the quality of the Sony 10-speaker system. I've personally never heard it, though.
