    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    https://www.hids-direct.co.uk/mtec-12v-55w-cosmos-blue-hid-class-upgrade-bulbs-select-bulb-type/ ^ I’ve had these in the front fogs for 10 years. Still going amazingly well.

    Did this latest MOT take place at the same location with the very same tester as the last MOT. Just made me wonder about that especially when you’ve mentioned earlier that its just about done a very minimal 2000 miles since the last test. Lets suppose the car had done done zero mileage since the last MOT ....can a new / latest MOT then pick up such a lot more than what you / one would be expecting to be told given what was found (or not found) at the last MOT. .

  7. Yh or similar i guess https://www.halfords.com/technology/car-audio/car-amps-subs/edge-edb10-10-v2-active-subwoofer?istCompanyId=b8708c57-7a02-4cf6-b2c0-dc36b54a327e&istFeedId=367c5610-f937-4c81-8609-f84582324cd6&istItemId=wwlqmwxm&istBid=t&_$ja=tsid:94971|cid:868555897|agid:49387676372|tid:aud-297219198129:pla-331127418625|crid:203456299584|nw:g|rnd:17329581921608559564|dvc:m|adp:1o5|mt:|loc:9045984&gclid=CjwKCAjw_YPnBRBREiwAIP6TJxU1oUjm1pB0Fr5Vhm1qq5OI1r0mEYyXNwyAIY31KCk7c3ztV34k5hoCKKoQAvD_BwE
  8. Cheers got the msgs thanks Dotcom I’ll hold out for an amp I guess. One thing which I saw someone once use was an amplified base box from I recall possibly from Halfords ...was just placed in the boot ...all under £100 ...when I heard it, to be honest it sounded like a major inprovement on mine. So could be I revisit that set up they had before going ahead.
  9. Have NBT with dab from an F10 fitted into my E60 ...which used to have the very basic poverty spec audio. I have since also installed alpine tweeters (so not the L7 ones). All other speakers are original. Overall probably doesn’t sound bad enough for it to warrant spending anything more than ‘budget money’ on it !! Even an MTX speaker swap is £350.
  10. Just exploring ...Seems like its far from simple to achieve a simple sound improvement in an e60/e61 !! Was hoping just changing the speakers alone would be worth it enough to make a difference.
