Beware of the 2010 base sound system

Beware of the 2010 base sound system
Its really and ampless and tweeterless POS . You will hate the car if you like
music at all. Its not the same as the Hi Fi system in all other model
years in the US . The only sound system option worth having from the factory for that
year in the US is the Top HI Fi also called the L7.

If can be upgraded aftermarket but it won't be cheap.
1.5k and up even if you can self install.

My 2007 has the base sound system, are you saying it's different in the 2010?

I found a 2011 model at a dealer (same car, same price, same miles), but it has 17" wheels and isn't a CPO. Would that have a better "base" sound system?

I actually have a similar question. I am looking at a 2010 328i xdrive asking $27.5K

35k miles

Premium package
Value package
fold down rear seats

heated seats

This is my first time buying a pre-owned anything. From what I have seen it seems fair, but I really am not sure. Any help would be appreciated

Yes its different read the links it explains it .

Yes its different read the links it explains it .
Please read them carefully.
A lot of cheapening went on in the 2010 model year and one of things
that happened was the real base system world wide got slipped in to the US.
There were a lot of real disappointed people so much so that the original
Hi Fi stereo(that was the base system in the US) that that the US had in model years 06 to 09 was reinstated after
about 3 months of 2011 production. The crappy base system is what the rest of the world
has been getting unless they want to pay world wide for some time now . The Hi Fi (06 to 09) is not all that good either but at least it doesn't offend unless you turn it up.

Please read the above carefully.

You have to check for the tweeters in the front doors to tell if a 2011 has the reinstated Hi Fi system .
There will also be an option number for it .
I would read and study these threads. I also would take some music down and listen to it in the car.
The reinstated Hi Fi is an 8 speaker system the rear tweeters were deleted. Don't be quick to make a
decision do your homework first. You can only spend your money once.

Oh well, maybe I should be looking at another car as a 2010 is what fits budget right now. Suggestions?

Maybe you should keep your 07

Maybe you should keep your 07
Because they don't build them like they used to.
+ when gas goes over 5 bucks a gallon this summer you may
want something that gets better mpg's.

Well I just picked up a CPO 2011 328i XDrive. The pricing wasn't working at first, but I ended up getting a pretty good deal. You see while the dealer was valuating my trade, they backed it into a fire hydrant and damaged the rear bumper. At that point, I didn't want the car back, they were embarrassed and we worked something out.

2011 328i XDrive (SULEV N51 engine)
Space Gray / Gray Leather
premium package
value package
heated seats
heated steering wheel
15K miles
CPO warranty till 100K or 2019
Paid 26K

Initial Impressions vs my 2007 E90:

They definitely improved the engine and transmission. The car feels much more powerful than my 2007. The transmission is much smoother and shifts much faster. Handling is greatly improved with the 17"wheels vs the 16"

I agree with the cheapening of the interior appointments, and it's pretty disappointing.

-No more ashtray (front or rear) or spare power outlet. Are there two? If so I can't find it.
-Cheap buttons and knobs
-No more rechargable flashlight in the glove box
-No more nets on the seat backs
-I didn't check the rear center arm rest for cup holders, etc yet.
-Headliner and interior lights seem cheap. When you push the buttons the whole headliner moves.
-Sunroof doesn't open all the way like the one in my 07 did.
-Seats are not as comfortable
-Headrests don't adjust

I don't know which stereo I have. It sounds the same as the one in my 2007, maybe a bit weaker in the base. Door sticker says build was 12/2011. How do I tell?

Is there somewhere I can put my vin number in to tell me all the specs?

EDIT: VIN Decoder says S676A HIFI LAUTSPRECHERSYSTEM HiFi speaker system

Mein Auto: 2011 BMW 328I xdrive
2011 sound system

My 2011 328 xi was built in December of 2011. Sound system seems ok but haven't got too many miles on it and thus, not used it much. I too would like to know if I have the good system or bad. Not that I'd do much about it; maybe be in a more "pissy" mood with the wife.
