It cannot be said that it is because the Coupe and Convertible require different drivers to sound the same as the Sedan, as you can get the same set of Focal 100KP components that fit all the models and still sound great in all of them.
yeah i totally agree. i was under the impression that they made their own drivers and therefore thought they would make them so they are compatible with all e9X if not all current BMW's. this is why i didn't understand why there was such a long "development" stage

Joey, which part of P'boro you live in? I used to live and work in the Ortons while I was stationed by my company out there.
I used to live in Orton Longueville once upon a time, right by British Sugar. I live in the Hamptons now, behind serpentine green.
