Why not? If something went wrong (highly unlikely), it's a BMW dealer, not a backstreet garage. No one is more qualified to work on a BMW than a BMW technician.

Hi Anneka,

is there a reason why the amplifier has to be mounted where the dab module is located, can't the amp be mounted elsewhere in the car?

If this is the only reason why DAB doesn't fit the criteria for the upgrade it seems a bit strange to me why the amp can't be mounted elsewhere in the boot of the car, for example in the empty space under the carpet.

Cheers.

Hi Anneka

I may try them, depends on cost to be honest. Would you be able to get this deal setup at any of the dealers in Northern Ireland?

Just the same info about the speakers as you gave for the amp please?
Sorry but I can't find this information. The speakers have an aluminium membrane for improved sound quality. The rating (unknown) will be high enough to manage the power being distributed from the amplifier. The entire system has BMW approval and is designed by Alpine who are one of the worlds leading audio equipment specialists.
Is there no way of finding out the spec of the speakers?

Saying that, I have just found two rcas tucked behind my rear seats, so am thinking there are some mods in the car that I am unaware of.....gonna need to investigate where they are being driven from...

Hi Khurmit, the Alpine Hi Fi can be installed in your car provided it hasn't been modified. Newbies need 5 posts before they can PM.

I've got to say, this upgrade is mighty impressive. We had it done on the short-lived 135i and I reckon it was one of the better systems I've ever heard (without spending silly money).

I'd buy one again in a flash and for this money you're really getting very good sounds!

Hi, is it too late for me to be involved in this deal?

I cannot PM yet as I am a new member.

I would like to use Newport and have it all fully fitted.

I would require a courtesy car, otherwise it will have to be done as a "while you wait"

My car is a July 2008 330i M sport Coupe, the last digits are PG15386.

Please let me know how to proceed.

Regards.
Rahul.

I wanted it too mate but seems it's a no go

Perhaps it's time for another group buy! Anyone else looking to do this?

I had this fitted by Sytner Coventry about 12 months ago. I can thoroughly recommend the product and the service from Sytner.

I am particularly demanding about any work involving trim removal having on several occasions with other cars had trim damaged by ham-fisted mechanics.

The installation by the guy at Coventry was faultless - and I am pedantically fussy. I was so pleased with the installation I even wrote to the boss of the dealership because it warranted that proactive feedback.
