Recommended audio installers in Sydney

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a knowledgeable audio installer in Sydney? I'm considering a few options taken from the forum but they're mainly US based, so wanted to have a chat about my options here and then go with a good installer than I can be sure will do a proper job.

I've come across FHRX and was wondering if there are any other suggestions.

Experience with BMWs would be great as I have the damned base stereo that needs to be properly de-EQ 'ed

FHRX all the way, there is no competition if you are after quality and piece of mind IMO!

I had a big $ system installed by FHRX in my last car and found his work to be great, but Marty's attitude is a bit slack and TBH he was a jerk to me...

Highly recommend Carbon Car Systems in Blacktown.

Check out their Facebook page, they installed my remote start alarm.

I don't think you need to de-EQ the base stereo, I believe you can re-code it to Hifi which is flat EQ.

That's right, but having reach Technic and other expert's opinion on the forum it seems like coding to HiFi isn't a long term solution because if I ever need anything coded by the dealer, it can get reset.

Having said this I can't see a realistic scenario where I would need to go to BMW dealership to get my idrive updated unless something goes horribly wrong. . .

On the same note, do you know any good coders in Sydney for E9X? the only thing I've found is a guy on gumtree who does 5 series mainly ...
