Audio Upgrades E90 Sedan

2008 E90 Sedan: Hifi Stereo(I think)

Current:
HeadUnit- Sony DSX-S300BTX
Radar Detector- Passport 8500ci

Wishlist: Wanting to add bass, possibly underseat replacements and trunk stealth corner sub, and amps. Only speakers if truly "NEEDED"

My thoughts:
Subs: SWS 8" under seats(2/4ohm?)
Trunk: stealth 10-12"
Amps: First system please recommend!

Thanks everyone, really want to make this my own!

Most stereo shops don't understand the E9x

There is a good chance they will screw it up you will
have problems down the line if not right away.
You need to educate yourself about whats in the system
before you take it to somebody and then see if they know
what they are talking about.

This.

There are loads of examples of people taking their cars to so called specialists and not getting decent results.

Ctuna is right, do your own research so you can find out if the shop is doing it correctly.
