I can't comment on this system.
However, Renault used to fit upgraded "Cabasse Auditorium" audi units and speakers and the difference was noticeable over the standard fit units.

Have you listened to the standard fit unit?? See what that sounds like first before you make a decision.
The weakest link in most set ups will be the std fit speakers - upgrade them with aftermarket ones for not much money and you usually get a vast improvement.

Also - how much is the upgrade audio option?
You can haggle hard when buying new these days and you should be able to get loads of goodies thrown in or get a hefty discount.

It will probably be several months at least before you can buy the adaptors etc to enable you to maintain steering wheel control and display if you fit an aftermarket unit.
