Advanced Loudspeaker Option

Post by nipper » Tue Oct 03, 2017 6:20 pm

I'm ordering a M240i Coupe and so I was wondering whether the advanced loudspeaker system option is any good? Ideally I would prefer the HK system but with the other options I have, it'll take me over the 40k mark and make it a very expensive choice. Appreciate any opinions.

Advanced are ok, probably the best value for money speaker option.

Stock are completely dire.

I'm going to have to drop something - probably front parking sensors just to get the Advanced package under 40K. All the other options I couldn't compromise on as they're things like auto box, paint, wheels and professional media. Unless HK is worth it over the professional media package?

No, stick with the Pro Media.

Thanks for the replies. It turns out that I was wrongly advised by the sales rep who was quoting me the OTR price instead of the list price. Thanks to this board I went to another dealer instead who knew what they're talking about (TRL), got HK sound and a much better deal in the process :D

Glad to hear it, absolutely always order the HK, unless you're deaf that is. The standard and 'intermediate' upgrades are woeful.

dont agree with marco, loud system is more like stock, if you want something better, take HK - for the money nothing special

Know this is an old thread but perhaps still reviewed by people looking for a new car still. So - I totally disagree with the above. I also have had both, the bmw advanced and the HK. Genuinely can’t tell the difference between em. I’d say just go for the BMW advanced and save the extra cost for the HK
