Question Upgrading stereo in an E90 2011

Hey folks! I new to the Bimmer World and need some advice as to where to go for assistance in upgrading my stereo and/or speakers in my car. I have the basic speakers (not sure what they are...Logic 7 maybe?). But they suck. What should I get and should I go with aftermarket or BMW genuine like HK?

Thanks!

BMW does have a retrofit kit for the base stereo but you can do better aftermarket.
Called the Alpine upgrade its pretty modest and can only be used with the base stereo.
You might have to get that from Europe though.

My guess is you have the ampless system only in the US for the early part of 2011 but you need
to verify that with the above info.
I don't think you can get BMW to upgrade to the other systems unless you are willing to pay
thousands of dollars.
Easiest but not the cheapest path is a MusicarNw system . It will give audiophile results.
Also all parts are included, no cutting or crimping required and amps and processors are pre adjusted as much as possible.
Most standard Auto Stereo shops can not deal with these cars effectively .
There have been horror storys as a result .
You need to be very careful if you choose a local shop.
