    I still use my going around town when I am bored with the commercials on the radio. I have an 06, so no bluetooth or aux port for me. On long rides, I use a FM transmitter which works really good.

    I have not put a CD in a vehicle since 2006 when I started using the Aux input and the MP3 player built into my various Garmin GPS units.

    Now starting a couple of years ago, Garmin deleted the MP3 player, but most HUs now have either a USB input, a spot for an SD card, or an Ipod interface.
    I bought a Nano just for that purpose.

    I love putting a shitty CD in the CD player when my car has to go into the dealership. When I had my subwoofer, I'd turn it out up and have it on the basses song. As soon as they turn it on, I know it's my truck that's being picked up. That's pretty much the only time that I use it. My Iphone is always plugged in. I remember one time it was in the shop and they forgot how loud it was and was all through the shop, made me laugh. At least I knew my truck was done. I don't do that anymore though.

    Constantly. I don't own an MP3 player, nor do I download music. I find a noticeable loss in sound quality. My collection is about 1000 CDs and I'm always buying more.

    I also listen to a lot of underground and hardcore music that never got played on radio, even if I bought satellite I'm not sure I'd hear it.
