BMW Audio packages

Should be taking delivery of my first BMW in two weeks. A secondhand 2008 320d with oyster leather and the Pro Comms package. Looking forward to it and from what I hear, BMW audio packs are sadly lacking. Any recommendations for speakers and amp? I'm UK based by the way.

Some 'basic' audio systems are particularly 'lacking'...those in MY2010 thru first part of MY2011, for example. No supplemental amp, no tweeters in doors.
Upgrading the amplifier is problematic in some MY BMWs, those that use optically linked amplifiers...hard to find aftermarket amplifiers that can accept the signal from the HU.

It is my understanding that there were three levels of sound systems available on the Euro-specification 320d. The base stereo on the 320d was well, basic. The "HiFi" system was the intermediate level system. And the Harman Kardon was the premium sound system.

If you have the Harman Kardon (or Logic 7) system, no upgrade is needed. If you have the base system, perhaps this company can help: www.bavsound.com

You may have to run a check on your car's serial number, to see which sound system you presently have.

Welcome to Bimmerfest!

For stereo help go here

There are many options in the above thread for amps and speakers.

The basic standard amp used the Jl 600/6
but there are many choices.
Speakers from the list according to budjet .(in the speaker section of the above
thread)
High end to medium speakers include Jehnerts , Morels and Focals.
You can buy factory tweeter housings pretty cheap if you need
them. A Technic Harness is something that should be on the list.
If you have the base system you will need to either by a Jl cleansweep,
processor or recode the HU to Hi Fi output to get a flat signal to an
amp.

There is UK subforums at e90post
There is a guy called Makkan00 who does stereo and coding work
that may be able to help you.
