F30 is growing on me and especially in Estoril blue.

Dave, would it be possible to post a pic for this mod?
XL woofers seems deeper and I wonder how was the enclosure sealed from the bottom?

I've heard this is new for the LCIs and never used to be the case.

So obviously my woofer would not be sealed very well with this big hole (About the size of a 2p!)
Pre-LCI cars have same holes. I wonder why have they left it there?
May be to fit those rubber bungs in those holes so that enclosures do not hit the body.

Just imagine, passing through flooded roads in E9X and you will be destroying your under seat subs.

And I always avoid flooded roads...not that I get a lot of choice.
