Good question!
I keep thinking that I will replace the nasty stock speakers I have in my Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T R Spec.

Issue is with all the background noise in a car, it's impossible to really get great sound.

Unfortunately, many of the car speakers today are tuned to the bassheads that want to rattle their windows and doors.  Finding flat sounding speakers is betting really tough.

My car has a factory installed H/K Logic 7 ( Mercedes ) . I find it very impressive compared to the stock one. Upgrade price was $1800
 
The best I've head was a B&O in an Audio A8, looks also damn cool. BMW and Mercedes started dealing with B&O recently, this is as far as I know. Price varies between $3950 - $6200
 
One of the most powerful systems I've head 8 years ago was on a Golf by Clarion.

Unfortunately, I lack the financial means to avail myself of a Mercedes or it's ilk.
Alas, alack!

The only factory car stereo I have ever heard that I actually liked was a Monsoon system!
