There is a firewall behind your rear seat. I removed my ski-pass-plate with good results. Obviously you can't do that, but there is nothing stopping you from cutting your own hole into the plate.

Be careful though! I'd take it back to a high-end stereo install shop and see how the've overcome this before. I am thinking it'd be safe to cut a hole about the size of a ski-pass. Say, a rectangle 7" wide by 10" high.

But ASK A PROFESSIONAL!! My words above are not an endorsement that it is safe to cut metal on your bimmer. Just thinking out loud.

Good luck.

I still have the stock speakers in the front. I've removed the rear deck speakers since the bass is all trapped in the bass. I have no ski hole. What should I do? i've heard ppl cutting the rear decks. But I am not tooo sure what to do.
