Also, BMW does a pretty good job on their mid range drivers. The people they get them from (nokia, alpine, etc) do a really good job designing for the compartment they are installed in. I now prefer to use BMW factory premium speakers over aftermarket drivers for the door locations whenever possible. I'll be using the BSW drivers that the previous owner installed though since they are there. As mentioned, the factory tweeters leave something to be desired though.

I'll be starting my completely overkill setup in the next few months hopefully. Been taking care of all the house things that have been piling up and after they are done... I'm taking some time for the audio system. Still need to pick an android head unit to go with...

Thanks brother - yeah I have seen some headliners from the wreckers, problem is the location and shipping, closest one has been 6+ hours from me, which is no bueno - I'll keep on the look out -
