    Hi all,

    How do I know what size speakers I need? Is there an online guide somewhere?

    There's lots of info on the forum if you do a search for it.

    They are not a standard size but you can buy adapter rings to fit 13cm or 17cm speakers in the original locations. Depends on your budget really.

    I replaced mine with a set of 13cm pioneers which were dirt cheap but still a noticeable improvement of the originals.

    I managed to put 17 cm into the rear deck, easily with a bracket. However smaller would be required for the front and I doubt a bracket would go in as three of the columns with gromits for attaching the door card back to the door are in the way! I think I will get some 13 cm's, cut them out of their holders and fix them to the BMW brackets
