    2. More expensive initial purchase

    II. Sirius Radio
    A. Pros
    1. Always new variety in music

    Sirius is pretty freakin sweet. I'd do that. MP3's are always the same...till you buy more....and I guarantee you would spend more than $13 a month buying MP3's to whet your appetite.

    I'd go iPOD, variety aside, have you ever listend to your whole MP3 collection on random. I do it all the time and I'm constantly going "wow, I didnt know I had that song" or "what the hell is this crap, I cant believe this is on my computer". It's random enough.

    :D

    i went ipod... ther are also download sites that are 10- 20bucks a month for unlimited downloads... thats always another option. i just like the fact that i can listen to it for what seems like forever and not hear the same song. Oh and btw, for the money NO other mp3 player out yet compares with the 60gb ipod;) (at least that ive seen...)

    I have a 40 gig Ipod and the Alpine head unit with the Ipod interface.
    40 gigs worth of music at the push of a button is pretty sweet.
    I loaded all the cd's I had, plus some of my friends cd's and barely scratched the surface with 1800 songs at about 4.5 gigs.

    I set it on "mix all" and it selects songs at random,,,:bow:

    the sirius S50 is... it does mp3, sirius and you can record a song from sirius on it and it will save it as an mp3 so you can hear it when ever... you can also rewind sirus radio and play songs again on it.
