My home stereo speakers cost more than the BMW HK and I would not pay extra for it new. Great if you can find used for little premium. IMO ~$1K to upgrade an already decent system is nuts in a non luxury car - yeah for a Bentley or Aston but not an entry level BMW.

The weak link of my main Home Theater audio is actually a HK Amp that has Logic 7 - never use that feature. It does sound absolutely great but I am looking to replace it one day just to polish the setup (there is no real need to but no one tell my wife. I fancy one of the new amps that can self calibrate but don't expect to notice any difference - hope to be surprised)

It's amazing to visit homes of people that have leather seats and a rockin' audio systems in their car.. only to find they have Rooms To Go/ Macy's furniture and a $300 all-in-one audio system hooked up to their cable box (often via analog cables when I brave peeking a look)

Six Euro Deliveries since December 1998 (Owned E46, E90, E91, E92 and E93)

28 vehicles in 26 years of driving so far. Guess I like cars
