    Hey Guys,

    A friend pointed me to this forum as a good place to get advice and discuss BMW's. I've just bought my first BMW, a 316 ti Compact Individual and I love it!

    I've been looking around the site and have found some really good advice. I have afew questions though and not sure if to post them in here or to do separate threads in each forum area?

    Firstly, are there any mods etc that people would consider essential? I was thinking about upgrading my lights with a Xenon pack but not sure if my money would be better spent elsewhere?

    Secondly, I have a whole lot of ICe from my last car and am not sure if it will fit in my new one, and I'm not ready to go ripping up my shiny new car to find it doesn't fit. I've got a set of these compnants http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/produ...n_US&p_status=

    running from a rockford fosgate amp, will these fit in my car or should I sell them and get some smaller ones? Secondly, the BMW has already got some 6x9's in, and I was wondering if I should amp these up to get a bit extra bass, or install a sub (I really dont want to do this because I dont want to lose the boot space!)?!


    Thanks Guys!!!

    Hey guys! Thanks for the comments, Im absolutely lovin my car and can't wait to get the audio install done!

    @stomper - the fosgate componants are fantastic! A little pricey and you can probably get better for your money IMHO, but they do take a hammering and sound great! I'll be gutted if I can't fit them in!!


    Cheers again for the warm welcome!
