My 2012 F10 came with Bluetooth, Premium Audio and Music Interface for Smartphone. I had the 6NR option installed remotely when my dealer said they could not install it.

Well, Fooljam says he's "done that many times before". Maybe he'd care to be a little more specific and explain exactly what components he used.

What that would accomplish? If it was only a matter too much bass, we could just lower the EQ settings at 100 & 200 hz. The issue is too much at ~80-200. I got a slight improvement by dropping one...

I bought my 2012 15 months ago when it had 6,500 miles. It now has 28k miles. Most everyone will agree that the Sport model's 19" Goodyear runflat tires have lots of problems. I've lost two due to...

I pretty much agree with what djcwardog said. I'm pretty happy with the Premium Audio in my 2012 F10, with the exception of the slightly boomy bass. It would be great to an EQ setting at 50 hz, in...

Ry"C,

Good comments, but you didn't say which audio system you have.

FWIW, I consider myself somewhat an audiophile (or audio snob). I can hear the differences between Chinese and American 300B...

I just wish there was a 50hz adjustment. Anyone know if it's possible to recode the HK system for this? I'd like to have a 2db cut at 100hz and 2db boost at 50hz.
