It is about an additional $600.00 and includes the MP3.jerzkid said:I am on my way to the dealer to upgrade to Monsoon. How much extra is it? Also, you guys spoke of 2 upgraded stereos, is the MP3 stereo one of them? That's what I have ordered right now.

DO NOT ORDER THE BASE STEREO...AS IT IS REALLY JUNK!
I order almost all the IMPORTANT options, well the polished wheels just had to be on the car, and I ordered the stock radio because GM USUALLY HAD a good base radio! You can't hear this radio, very good, with the top down and with the top up it's a very TINNY sound! The dealer told me to set the Bass/Treble all the way up, and that helped a little, but this radio is JUNK! I'm going to look for a better aftermarket radio/system in the spring.
SO can people with the monsoon validate that it is worth the 600 bucks? I wouldn't mind the 600 if it saved me the trouble of tearing up a brand new car. I don't even want to think about getting the tweeters out of the A frame.latin venom said:However if you would have order the Monsoon option the problem would not be there.
There are a few postings on this subject by those that have the Monsoon equipment. All the postings were positive, however if you are looking for a thumping sound, then go aftermarket, the Bass in the Monsoon is adequate but it also depends on what you are after.silversolstice said:SO can people with the monsoon validate that it is worth the 600 bucks?

I have a Alpine 9851 in my S2000 our remote function are on the left side of the dash. You have to get a inerface controler to make the controls work.brian carpenter said:We have been told that the Pioneer AVIC-D1 will fit and work in the Solstice. They say that you need a special wire harness to adapt the steering wheel controls to the unit. Any one else looking at this?
