Good luck, these cars are hard to upgrade - the consensu I've always heard that you need to be in the 3-4k range before you start surpassing the premium setup. If all you want is more bass, however, that should be pretty easy.

From what I have read and heard on several test drives, the Premium sound system is superb and far better than the stock system. I too wish you good luck. I recently ordered mine with the Premium after numerous tests going back and forth.

Serious audiophiles hang out on the Bavarian Soundwerks Audio Forum - go the Bimmerfest main page and scroll down to "Best of Bimmerfest". If anyone knows how to upgrade the F10 sound at a reasonable cost, you will find them there!
