100% Get it I listened to it today for almost an hour its awesome for a car stereo and if you like music even 50% as much as I do you will love it. I think there must be subs under the seats because i couldnt count as many speakers as they mention in the brochure where the hell are they?

I am now certain I will have to order another car with it or my dealer will have to swap with someone elses for this.

Once again the unknowledgable CA caused this mixup on my order. Even today my CA was off and another guy helped and he said the car has the standard stereo and after 5 min i didnt believe him i had to search for the window sticker and it was enhanced.

I listened to music ranging from Nirvana Live, Seal, U2, Depeche Mode, Alicia Keys, Sinatra and I know how to set the EQ and it really was enjoyable.

This is coming from an audiophile who has a home media sound room well over 75K in equipment. I love music!!!

They should make this a standard option as they do Logic 7 on the 335

absolutely get it. it sound amazing. It is worth the money. you wont be disapointed.

I was happy with the logic 7 in my 335, but the upgraded sound in my M3 is out of this world.

WTF is right. Maybe the "enhanced" sound part of it wasn't setup correctly. I hope it's better because I am about to buy it.

Jesus, people...back off. I have driven a 535 for almost a year and gotten completely used to the L7 with my ipod and then sat in an M3 and listened to HD radio as well as another ipod and IN MY OPINION, I didn't think it sounded better. If it does, that is really good news because I just put my deposit down on mine tonight and I ordered the enhanced sound. I obviously have to do some tweaking....

BTW, I believe I read that it has 16 speakers? Where the hell are they? I only counted 8, if I remember correctly.

Trust me, I hope to come back here next week eating crow and talking about how much better it is than L7.

oh, i had a test drive tonight. i put in my iPhone which has a few music files. all i have to say is those who say Logic7 => M audio are on crack. they are definitely deaf, dont have the right music file/CD to play, or dont know nothing about sounds

Some of the speakers are coaxial (two speakers in the same place, usually a mid-range and tweater). I think the speakers in the rear doors and rear deck are all coaxial. There are also subs under each of the front seats. There is a diagram here someplace that shows where the enhanced audio speakers are located.

The enhanced audio amp is listed having seven channels. I would guess one channel for the front center speaker and then three channels for each side (mid range and tweeter on each channel is my guess). There is a separate two channel sub amp.

You're not looking hard enough. Here's what I count:

Dash center, 1 coax - 2
Front door mids - 2
Front door tweeters - 2
Rear side mids - 2
Rear side tweeters - 2
Rear shelf, 2 coax - 4
Under front seat bass - 2

Total - 16

There are 3 extra tweeters over the Logic7 setup (in addition to twice the amp power output and a different DPS programming).

Doesn't make it a better system. My buddy with the same car (JB 08 M3 with Enhanced Sound) said that his sound on his 2003 330i is better than this one....We are both far from audiophiles and are also both hoping that there are some settings tucked away in there that we just don't see.

The Enhanced Premium Sound has a "Surround" setting, but so does Logic7. It also has a 7-band graphic equalizer, while L7 does not, I believe. I think it is very good, but have no comparison basis except to the E46 HK system.

Trouble is, Logic7 is not an option on the M3 for the US, so it doesn't come down to much of a choice.
