It's nowhere near as good as the HK was in my G30 for example, and I'd even say it was poor compared with my mate's E-class with Burmester sound.

Here's hoping I get a resolve with all the speaker crackling issues & bass dropping out when it's in the dealer for the 4th time next week.
It sounds like I have been fortunate with not getting bass drop out issues. HK system is nowhere near as good as the Bowers and Wilkins system in my XJ but it is way better than the Meridian fitted in my XE. As this is my first BMW, I don't know what standard systems are like in comparison.

It took a bit of fiddling with surround and equaliser settings, but I've pretty much got a set up that suits my ear with music i like, however it is still a bit of a compromise.

I wanted HUD so HK came with it as part of the Tech pack.

Fingers crossed 4th time lucky
