When you find out, let us know. You can usually see (and hear) the tweeters behind them quite easily.

Where-abouts is the 'amp' in the boot?

Sounds like the MULF (communications) box to me, does it have Bluetooth or USB connectivity?

The Original Poster needs to update the 1st post....

As the following is now incorrect:

"Q: What is the difference between the Business Satellite Navigation and the Professional-Satellite Navigation?
A: The Business Navigation consists of: iDrive Controller, 6.5" folding colour screen, DVD Drive, Twin Radio Tuner with RDS and AUX input points, Arrow Only display with Audio Instructions"

It should now read:
A. "Drive Controller, 6.5" 2D and 3D views, TMC Traffic Rerouting, Ability through "ConnectedIDrive" to access iPhone contacts/maps and navigate to "favourite" destinations."


I'm not sure about the "folding colour screen, DVD Drive, Twin Radio Tuner with RDS and AUX input points" as I only just got the car. (218 SE model).
