very nice, congrats on the purchase! look forward to seeing the updates.

will probably need to code out the fog lights after you delete them

have you decided who you are going with to get it tinted?

Are you referring to the rear seat tweeters? I think 328-428 have stock Hi-Fi with front tweeters.

Yeah. I don't have rear tweeters. Need HK for that... Rear tweeters are a waste anyway.

Nope, I'm talking front. Mine doesn't have them unless they are extremely well hidden or I'm going blind in my old age. Latter is a possibility. Assuming they would normally be in the A pillar.

That's odd I thought 328i all had stock hi-fi which includes front tweeters, unless yours came with 'Base' audio which doesn't have it however they can be retrofitted either OEM or aftermarket.

I believe in the U.S. the standard is the Base Stereo rather than Hi-Fi. In Australia we don't get that. It doesn't have tweeters and the speakers are not amplified - just run off the head unit.

I'd say that's what Kier77 has...

Yeah, just base audio. It's very average to say the least and I'm keen to explore options to upgrade. If anyone has advice on where I could go in the Sydney/Central Coast/Newcastle areas to have this done would be great. I won't be doing it myself as I have zero skills in this area and don't want to screw anything up.

So I guess it is available in Australia then..

I think the 4 Series has slightly higher specs here than the 3er though... We get Adaptive Suspension as standard for example... Maybe Hi-Fi is part of that list?

The invoice is in the car so I don't know the exact breakdown but Paint+Install was $500 for both the Rear Spoiler and the Front Diffuser.

The diffuser I only got the 2 bits that come up over the bumper painted. I left the bottom "blade" matte black.

Thinking of doing the same with my front lip and having the 2 bits Glacier Silver and the blade in CF. Was yours through Rencal?

Has yours been installed such that it can easily be removed and nobody would know unless they looked under the car? The reason I ask is that I'm thinking of installing it as full CF and then removing it and getting the top sections painted if I don't like it in full CF.

I sourced the parts myself but yes, took them to Rencal to get painted and then went back this morning to have them fitted. I usually do this sort of thing myself but it's so much easier on a hoist.

Can't recommend Rencal highly enough.

Yep. If you removed them you would find 2 extra screw holes in the underside of the front bumper and no other evidence at all.
