And she's now looking much more purposeful. From Nan's shopping trolley to Mean Machine :) All of a sudden that SE bumper doesn't look too bad. How good are Style 128s! 10mm spacers fitted at rear. Wheels are 9j ET 24 all round. Fronts didn't need spacers. Front bolts letting the side down, needs a wash :P

FYI; be careful with adjustable drop links

 

I had no end of issues with them on my previous E39 and ended up going back to fixed OEM ones. They constantly came undone and that's with a drop of loctite on them and then tried to get other bolts on to lock them in place etc

 

Hopefully you won;t have similar issues!

 

On another note; the car looks spot-on :mrgreen:8)

Time to upgrade to this little lot - full Logic 7 speaker kit. 

 

Don't need the rear door woofers as I'd need new door cards and looms etc.

 

Centre speaker...is there a connection there or not? 

 

I've heard that even without the amp this is a good upgrade...so let's do this thing!

Fronts went in last weekend. 

 

It's like night and day. 

 

If you have not done this mod, what are you waiting for?

How does the Logic 7 system sound without the amp in? My car has the basic speaker package in (no front door tweeters) and it's the one thing I really want to upgrade.

 

Sounds good, bass is very deep. I turned the bass and volume right up and the speakers felt like they couldn't cope. Never heard the full L7 setup so can't compare, but it's good enough for me.

 

Just adding tweeters to the doors and roof speakers would make a big difference, for much less than I paid. Probably could get the two sets of tweeters for around £50?
