I have a factory sound system (monsoon) on my 2003 beetle. I love it so far. I have had distortion in the right front speaker. I thought it was busted but have noticed that it only does it on some songs(maybe 1). As my bug is still under warranty..the dealership said that they would cover it. I have an appmt next week for this and my mirror defrosts. They advised me that the sound system would be hooked up to something like vagcom? and it would tell what is happening. I had no idea they could do this for soundsysem. Also CD player reads error on slot #5and 6 sometimes. Anybody have any warnings or advice for the Monsoon soundsystems? I know there are some "haters" out there, thats okay!
