The dealer that was looking at it was really unhelpful, but it's going back to the supplying dealer on Tuesday to have it looked at further, and they seem a lot more willing to help.

Just be aware - if you're used to HK you'll get a shock with the standard system, it is terrible.
I currently have the standard system in my F36, and it's not that bad after some EQ tweaking. I've have had the HK system in an E46 and the Pro-Logic(?) system in my Z4 coupe, both of which were good, although did have rattly doorspeakers in the E46.

I'm a bit of a hi-fi buff and car-based system are always a compromise - road noise and listener position being far from ideal.

With my current lease ending soon, and some good prices appearing on G20's, I wondered if it was worth paying for the upgrade. Just trying to gauge if it's a widespread problem. If so, I'd avoid it and save some £'s and still be happy with the standard set-up.
If you're a Hi-fi buff, then you will find the HK infinitely better. If you get it setup right and feed it a higher quality source it'll be much better. My mate has the standard system in his G20 and it just distorts when you turn it up.
