BMW Individual Audio vs our custom setup (mainly MS-8 based)

Guys, Have you ever got a chance to listen to BMW factory Individual Audio and compared it with our MS-8 based system? I would normally say just standard MS-8 based setup with good driver in front and better underseats all amplified.

Have anyone compared it with individual audio? I did listen to Logic 7 once and I didn't like it at all, I was all set to do L7 retrofit but changed mind after listening to it once

Individual Audio to DQXS, then to bit one.1, then to MS-8, then to PXE-H800: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=183025 to http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=637056 to http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=744658.

Verdict: The Individual Audio OEM amp is the cause of all sound quality complaints of this OEM system. Once removed (be by coding to HiFi or by using a mObridge DA2) even the OEM speakers sound much better.

Since all the speaker from individual audio is plug and play is it better to keep door card coaxial and front centre coaxial compared to aftermarket alternates? There aren't many aftermarket alternates with good feedback for coaxials unless we go for high end which is on extortionate prices like morel intregra XO.

Which will be better and easy on pocket alternate compared with morel for centre coaxial and rear door card coaxials, please recommend one.
