I have to disagree. Although not what I would call audio nirvana, the base system is very good. Definitely not a POS. Much better than the system that came in my TSX (which I upgraded) or the systems I've heard in my friends vehicles. I have not heard the HK system in the F30 nor have I heard the systems that came in the E90.
A POS audio system can meaning many things to different people. If one really like loud and well defined music, then the base system is a POS because its under powered and lacks seperation. If all you listen to is talk show and music at low volume, then the oem system is fine.
