Questions about adding center channel

So I've read for two days straight and still can't find the answer I need. I'm adding a center channel to my 2008 328i with hi fi system. I'm going to add the center channel via the MS8 I have the wire and technics harness soon. The trim panel cover there is my air condition and when I took it off I don't see where I could put a 4" center speaker do I need to buy another adapter from BMW ? I looked through the parts on BMW and it only shows one adapter and cover for my car. I went to my dealership and they were like "huh your trying to do what? Your car can't do that you need logic 7" in other words they were clueless. Any help is appreciated.

My car is also a 2008 328i with the hifi system. When I removed my dash vent cover I had the plastic speaker holder in there. I think most here have had the same experience, you then have to replace the vent cover with the one with the speaker grill. The parts are different depending on whether you have idrive or not. Look on getbmwparts.com and you can order everything you need there.

Thanks Cdgatti I will get on there and get the parts. What is the depth of the 4" speaker that can fit in there ? The Vibe slicks are near impossible to get ! Thanks.....

PM sent, but pretty much any 4" will fit, with some improv on the 3 vs 4 hole pattern.
