Two problems with my 08 M3, Anyone else??

Problems:
1. Engine service light - about increased emmisions the service dept said its the coil they ordered it for me.

2. Im about 90% sure that one of my bigger speakers isn't working i feel a lack on bass (Premium Sound pkg).

If anyone else is having these problems or others please share....

Hope no one is...

On #2, have you adjusted the equalizer and turned up the bass?

Please keep us posted on the service light. I've got the base sound system, so I can't help you there.

Was that you I was talking to on the GSP at the Union tolls on Friday night? (I was in the IB E90.)

hmmm.. maybe i should compare my car to another m3 because I have the premium and i think the bass really sucks. I mean I had a loaner 328xi and it had more bass than my car did.

Oh yeah, I did adjust the equalizer and the bass settings

I order to troubleshoot the inoperative speaker, have you used the balance and fader to isolate all four corners of the car and determine which corner has no bass output. It's probably the woofer at one of the corners that doesn't work.
