Audio help

Can anybody recommend someone they know or a car audio shop in the Seattle area that does good quality work..without breaking the bank? I have an 03 540i wagon with DSP and I will be putting in the Dynavin head unit with a 5-channel amplifier, and from what I have heard this is an advanced install with the DSP and all. I know of Benchmark Motoring, but they are very very expensive. If anybody can recommend someone, it would be of much help. Thanks

This is a full-boat install. You must replace the DSP amp. I would not trust this install to any schlock operation, since the car interior must be disembowled to install this thing.

Yes, that's exactly what I've heard. Half the shops around here are whiz bang bass shops, and the other are very high end, and very expensive.
