Would love to meet up with a 2010 owner to compare. I was ready to take it straight to the aftermarket audio shop, but there is absolutely NO NEED!

I'm just sayin, all i'm sayin.
While I am pleased overall with the premium audio in my 2011, I am a bit surprised at the lack of low-end bass. My 08 335i with logic 7 seemed to have better bass (extended deeper).

Maybe it is because of the subs (if you can call them that) being under the seats...and not having the proper amount/type of enclosed area to create the lows?
