    Bmw f11 audio option.

    Ok I have a F11 2011 with stock speakers (no tweeters and always found the sound to be somewhat lacking In my previous BMW 1 and 3 series I have bought tweeters and grills and the improvement has been amazing. However in the 5 the standard speakers (to probably save money have no option to add tweeters as only one socket.What I decided to do was take a chance on E60 logic 7 mids and tweeters. I've only done one side so far (the other tweeter hasn't arrived yet) but the improvement is night and day. No amp upgrade needed I'm over the moon!!!And as it's logic 7 (silver speaker and tweeters) you Can see them through the grills and they look Sweeeeeeet

    excellent, best of luck I’d say £120 labour not too bad.

    As far as I’m aware it’s a really simple twist and drop out like a bayonet light bulb if you have the jack and things, for for the sake of £50 labour for one side I didn’t want to get into it.

    Think it was this one, certainly not genuine or Arnott but the way I looked at it was (if it starts to fail in 2 years I only spent £100 all in on the repair so can do it again (rightly or wrongly) https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F301161528813

    Definite failure, mine didn’t appear as bad as this and it was falling to the deck sometimes after 5 minutes sometimes 5 hours, bought a suspension unit from eBay for £49, and a garages fitted it for £50. So far so good
  7. I'd say go for it too, I bought mine of eBay, loved the colour really but wanted new wheels to make my car look a little less like all the other 17" standard SE company cars. I do however have a bit of a gap between the arches as car Is standard suspension and also needed spigot rings to make them fit on the hubs correctly as got vibration at 60mph. All good now though Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    All sorted by the garage, saw the receipt briefly think the total for parts and labour was £320, Was thinking that some sort of upward facing cone shielding the bottom of the bag fitted at the bottom of the airbag would be a very cheep preventative measure? Somthing like the attached pic sorry for the rubbish doodle

    Had my 2011 520d F11 fail at the weekend picture is with car jacked up and wheel removed, thankfully only purchased just under 3 months ago being done under warranty sometimes had error sometimes not, but very low and was bad to drive to garage, beware of potholes!!
