    Grounding your car to pavement won't improve any transmitter signal but it will help protect you during a lightning strike.

    FM transmitters suck, no matter what they cost. You should hard wire an AUX port to your stereo.

    Like a grounding strip that drags on the ground, similar to a hi-lo's ground strip?

    No whining from grounding. Proper grounding elimates/significantly reduces noise or what you call "whining."

    +100.

    The only thing I have found that works better than a FM transmitter, but still garbage compared to a CD/AUX port, is a FM interrupter. Blocks incoming signals (not completely) and transmits a desired signal. Not perfect, but alot better. Probably would cost you $50-60 or so.

    Definitely go with that PIE electronics thing. Plugs right into the CD changer port and you instantly have your AUX IN.
