Angry Stereo Problems

Have some rattles from one of the passenger side front speakers along with what appears to be a FADE in and out of the DSP system. It sounds as if the TREBLE leaves the sound then fades back in and out. Very troubling on a new vehicle.

I love the ride and can't wait till break-in period is over.

The stereo volume is speed sensitive. Do you think this may be what you are hearing as the volume (and the bass and treble) compensates for road/wind noise?

If it is the stereo, it will be replaced under warranty.

No the treble was definately fading in and out. it's seems to be a sporadic issue, so I'll have to keep my eyes on it.

Go for it.... What a Great Ride and the 4.4i Growl is Sweeeet...

I came out of a 528i Automatic and this SAV feels faster and handles almost as good. Nothing like a 5 series (or 3 for that matter) for handling.

Now's the time as lease rates are low and residuals are still high...

Wow. Now that's quality control. SmackX54.4 has an appointment with our shop to get that noise problem fixed.

Now TED is SUPER DEALER a 4.6 loaner..... I'll be taking you up on that offer or maybe the M5???

I believe the problem is actually a rattle in the passenger side front door.

Have an appointment on the 17th to get all items looked at.

Thanks

To BMW NA...

I am disappointed at the lack of BASS in a system that at $1,200 bucks as an upgrade cost is very steep.


Why wouldn't BMW use a 10 or 12 ince sub back there so there is NO distortion?

That should be fixed.

You've heard it before. I'll say it again. I love my car, but for a so-called "premium" audio system (at a premium price), the HK is a disgrace.
