I'm quite sure that you'd need to drop the headliner somewhat to gain access. The 'covers' you can see are indeed just that, covers and to get to the speaker itself you need more space/access. That said, I think it's a complete waste of time replacing the speakers in that location - they fire straight down to the boot/load space floor. With the upgraded sound quality of the BSW's (didn't know they did E39 touring roof speakers) perhaps that will help them sound better in that location. For me, I created custom pods to fit on the D pillar cover to project the sound forwards into the cabin. Pictures;

They're 4 inch co-axial DLS speakers and I only run them for a 'little' rear fill as I do prefer 'some' music detail from the rear. I'd say perhaps 10-15% of the level of my front is what I run the rear's at.

Excuse the slightly lose oem cover, my replacement oem Sport black headliner is in the garage!

Cheers, Dennis!
