Speakers included in warranty?

One of my friends was sitting in my car and she was messing with my radio and blew out the small speakers on the top of the front doors. So I was wondering if the warranty would replace those or if it would just be better to install aftermarket speakers. Cause I am more than happy with the sound quality of the speakers right now.

Speakers are covered by your warranty in general.

If you blew the speaker by going beyond normal parameters, then that is no different than if you blew your engine with a money shift.

However, at the same time, you shouldn't really be able to blow out a speaker with the amplifiers BMW installed.

So I would see this as a possible defect and report it as such.

It is under warranty, just go in there and tell them something is wrong with speaker (no sound). Just played dumb like you don't know what is happening and that your speaker is no good. They will be happy to replace it for you. Just do it and stop wasting your time asking

My thoughts exactly... I think sometimes as enthusiasts, you know too much & can talk yourself out of getting something done by the dealer.. Always play dumb, like they do when they screw you on something...

FWIW, my dealer replaced my a blown speaker for me several years back (2002) in my old car -- so I would assume this is policy.
