The premium wasn't worth it to me. i got the recaro seats so the electric seats weren't an option. all the little extra weren't worth an extra 4k for me. the stock radio sounds just fine and if it doesn't 100$ and u got new speakers. i purchased a 15$ wireless bluetooth adapter and it works just like sync.

as for breaking it in i didn't beat on it. i did engine break it to set the seals. i tested it at 300/700/1100 miles and it didn't lose any oil at all. options and outcome may vary though.

i hit it the second it hit 1000 miles though.

If I would of bought a base model I would have gotten Recaro seats and installed an aftermarket Bluetooth stereo. Good luck with your decision.

My base GT came with the tech package so I got bluetooth and sync. I wouldn't spend another 5K for leather and lighting.

Infiniti Kappas in the doors($180), Pioneer 4 channel amp($210), and a 12 inch JL audio sub and ported box($250). I kept the rear speakers in but left the power stock so they will work as a filler at low volumes. Bridged two channels to the sub, and a channel each to the front speakers. I kept my stock dash by using a high/low converter to hook up to my amp.

I had a base 2013 with the V6/6sp, upgraded to a premium 2014 GT/6sp. The seats have more adjustments and my long trips are more comfortable. Plus the resale value will be better in the long term on a premium.

What's a good adapter to use to convert to RCA's for the amp? I got one from a local audio shop but the instructions are very vague..
