Hey guys i was wondering if any of you ahve done this. I want to get either a 10 inch or a 12 inch sub. However, i am in constant need of basically all my trunk space. So i have seen 1 or 2 vehicles in the past with a sub basically right above the spare batter. Yes, it did go alittle bit into the regular trunk space, but if its very minimal i dont mind. SO could someone post some more pics of setups like these or explain how i could do somthin like this?

Are you asking if anyone has it above the battery (passenger side corner of trunk) or above/in the spare tire well?

I have a 10" JL Audio sub in a custom box sitting on top of the plastic tray over the battery that protrudes minimally into the main trunk area. I can't think of a better place to put it in the E46 trunk and retain as much space as possible....with the possible exception of JL Audio's Stealboxes. I don't have pictures of mine here, but search the forum and you will find pics from others who have in that same corner of the trunk. Mine is basically the same.

Mine is above the spare tire under the floor.

What's a 'spare battery'?

huh? You ordered an E90?
Yup

1) Wanted a manual
2) More HP and bluetooth
3) Too many E46's at work. When I bought my 02, I was the only one.
4) Will order E90 M3 sedan in '08 ;)

I have a 330cic with the cold weather package. don't think I will ever use the ski pocket in the deep south!!! The sub is in a swing out where the ski bag is. Has anyone replaced this with a upgrade sub and a solid sub box? It looks like there may be room for that mod.

Though not as involved as my 02 retro-fit, still will post E90 Sirius install pix. :smokin:
