Fleet, Thanks as always for the inside news.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of thumping sound systems, especially if driving a 6MT (would rather hear the revs!)

Who are you, who are so wise in the ways of science?


Have to agree with JackMac, I'm not a fan of bass thumpers (should be legal to openly fire at them).

But as usual, you are our source for breaking news!

im not 100% shure
Ita hard to tell from the parts system

i think the speaker in the dash and the rear door speakers each get a integrated tweeter, thus adding 3 speakers

The new sound system is better. I have delivered a car with it and the 2 new m5 and m6 both had it here. It has more bass and just an overall better sound. I believe its a $600 option.

If it cost that much more than the logic7, it gonna be real expensive here in the e9x.

oh buh, a nicer sound system...the logic7 does the trick for me. I bet I wouldn't even know the difference between the logic and the new.

Any possibility to an upgrade for cars that are on the streets already or are we pretty much stuck?

So would the current Logic 7 disappear with the introduction of this new system? I don't see how BMW would offer 4 different speaker configurations over the E9x range.
