    I've got the set of drivers complete with crossovers for those. I replaced the originals with infinity drivers with separate crossovers (passive). With a bit of fettling you'll get modern spec drivers to fit in the premium cabinets.

    Good news indeed, we'll have to have a powwow. Regards, Ivor

    No mate, I had two holes already in the parcel shelf left over from previous speakers. They do an admirable job as ports. P.S, I forgot to say I'm removing the BMW tweeters from the mirror mounts and replacing them with Infinity 3/4" drivers

    Hi Mick, I've got one in the boot Mick but discarded the cabin lights...I didn't like them. I'm on the look out for something with better light for the boot. Regards, Ivor

    Nice choice Gaza, I opted for 6x4 infinity plate speakers for the front and replaced rear drivers with infinity components in the rear. All are driven by an Alpine 4x70 watt amplifier. This system has the ability to be quite loud because of the efficiency of the infinitys. Bass is taken care of by a boot mounted sub woofer driven by a 400w Kenwood amp.

    I've had a set of the BMW mirror tweeters installed for a while but recently decided to upgrade the whole BMW premium sound system speakers. I found that the speakers couldn't handle a modern head unit's full audio dynamics, they were originally designed to operate and be driven by the premium head unit and amplifiers notwithstanding the limitations of the technology of the time. I am in the process of doing this and would be happy to tender any advice or tips to anyone wanting to do the same. I have retained the original "premium" speaker cabinets so everything still appears "stock".

    You're absolutely right, how much these have reduced in price.

    The later ones had two. One for the temp sender and one for the warning light.

    Yep. I've had that one too!

    Temp gauge

    Take the spade connector off the sender( by the temp sensors) and quickly short to the sender housing, get someone to sit in the car while you do it and get them to signal any movement. The needle should deflect 100%, if so then you have a faulty sender, if not then you have another fault.

    I have had an HG leaking oil at the RH front corner of an M30 engine. It didn't cause any problems, just a bloody annoyance that was cured by replacement. Totally agree with your comments re BMW parts pricing.
