And last, does everyone agree that if you are using ipod, you should set the eq to flat or off and remove the volume limiter.

I'm a noob at this so I apologize if these questions seem basic.
I am not sure what system your car is equipped with, but if your car has those silver speaker trims around the front mids and the rear mids and tweets, then you have this system. Very rarely have I seen 335i's (non-US cars) with this system, the ones I have seen on here have been Individual cars, so odds are, this is not the same system you have.

The S-vol thing as someone else mentioned, I have yet to be able to replicate their explanation, that turning the S-vol higher eliminates the muddy sound issue at lower volumes. I have listened very carefully for this and cannot replicate this issue, not in my E92 or the many others I have been in with the EPS. I still recommend that the S-vol setting be set at the lowest setting of 1.

You are absolutely correct, the internal EQ of the iPod must be set to OFF, and the volume limited must be OFF. I think I mentioned this in the original post as well.
