Get yourself educated here...

There's a few quirks with our e90's that require a little extra attention depending on what audio system you're starting with. Most shops literally have no clue about this. I live in the Pittsburgh area and really never found a shop that really knew what they were talking about when it came to our vehicles.

There's lots to take into account, such as:
1) Base audio? HiFi audio? L7 Audio? etc. Each of these requires different connections to take into account.
2) Speaker fitments?: For example, our door speakers are 4" and only a few manufacturers make the proper sizes to drop in and fit since they have a rather shallow opening. It's made worse if you had a coupe.

Those are just two examples and most shops don't have a clue.
Really educate yourself, then start figuring out what you might want in your vehicle.
