When I listen on the car radio, it's not wide enough and feels thin and kinda cheap sounding. My wife keeps telling me that mastering will fix that, and I keep telling her it won't... even though I've never had a track mastered before.

So, would any of you guys with great rooms and monitoring chains be willing to check out a mix, and tell me everything that is wrong with it? If so, PM me and I'll send you a download link!

Well, during mastering i've known engineers to stereo widening techniques to help give a fuller sound.. also adds sheen to polish your mix. Your wife may be right
