1.8 volts RMS is definitely within the bounds of "fairly standard", 
and in fact is substantially hotter than the conventional line level
of 1V.  The important point is that the signal is compatible with
virtually any aftermarket amplifier.

But is that typical?  I don't think so.

Only noise coupled to the wiring.  If someone comes up with a solution 
to the noise coming from outside the cabin then maybe I'll start worrying
about whether the noise floor of my car stereo is at -80dB or -100dB.
