results may vary.

Best place to mount front speakers: Surface mounts on the carpeted kick panels on each side of the front footwells. Just make sure they mount the left side speaker so it'll clear the hood release handle when it's in the open position.

Second best location: in the cardboard under-dash panels at the far left and right sides of the car. Main drawback with these is that it's hard to mount speakers larger than 4.5-5" in diameter.

Bad place: anywhere you have to make irreversible cuts, like the door panels or sides of the console.

Cheers

maybe a professional, stereo only shop, but most of them are just about BS in the end as well. Just make sure you are comfortable with whoever does it! -Reid

i installed my stereo myself. but i built my own center console and have two 6" satallite speakers on either side of my center console, but you cant really hear them. my 6x9's behind the backseat really overpower the two in front. i have no idea where else to put speakers, but i wouldnt let bestbuy install anything. hope that helps a little. oh and im pretty sure there is room in the stock console for speakers.

is free. . . and my center console still isnt in the car, and my current stereo isnt working, and i just finished re wiring the engine bay and never wanna touch a multimeter or piece of wire again. . . would it be so bad to have them wire it up, and that's it? i've decided i'm trying to make due with the PO's front speaker. . . two speakers that look like they're for outdoor speakers (encased), hanging from beneath each underdash panel. . . maybe take 'em out. . .

The install is non-standard and they will probably not have the expertise.

If you don't want to do it yourself, go to a custom shop.

part of the hazard switch it was design from bmw for a radio. Now to run a constant 12v for preset stations and clock, I found only one source and is the red/yellow wire attached to the cigarret lighter. If you need any pics let me know. For the front speakers mine were installed on the bulkhead under the rear seat. I'm planning on adding some tiny ones upfront.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
