I do not have the premium or convenience package on my vert, I only added walnut trim and the sport package. I am very happy with my choice. I added navigation and blue tooth phone by adding a Garmin 885t GPS. It can be controlled by voice or touch. There at least used to be a Garmin Portable Pro system for about $1000 installed that is better integrated but the same idea. I also put in a remote microphone (garmin). For the garage door opener, I put in flash2pass. A double flash of your headlights opens the garage door.

If there are key things out of the package you would like, you may want to investigate other ways to have that functionality (like I did). Flash2pass was less than $100 and my Garmin setup was about $300. Total was a LOT less than the package.
