Mrs Sx hired a Citroen Picasso a few weeks back, not top of the range but it had DAB. So in time we will all have it.

The range of music is mind blowing, and crystal clear.

Never heard anyone complain about them, other than they do drop out in certain areas for a second or two.

DAB depends on where you are located. if you live in a city there great, lots of choice etc.....but if you live in a town or do alot of traveling outside of bigger places on B roads etc expect the reception to be poor . My partner has one in her car and has to listen to most things via FM if out of town. Love the idea of them just very much depends on your location
