I have the HK option on my 2001 330i. There is an off/on button to activate the surround sound. Even for me, not a audiofile fanatic, there is a noticeable difference. I prefer HK with the surround sound on. Sorry I threw a wrench in the gearbox.

I've been used to a regular 6 speaker mid-size sedan.
I also saw something saying that surround sound is worst for your hearing. Can I get some clarification on that?
