    What to spend my cash on need opinions :)

    Hey

    Well I am lining my next mod up for the car but I am stuck between two choices right now so weould appreciate if you guys gave your opinion.

    The first upgrade is these bad boys and thanks to DogSoldier who pointed me in the right direction in what to buy.

    In Phase XTC420 4 inch 160W 2-way coaxial speakers 10cm - XTC420 from In Phase

    Basiclaly as ther standard audio system is gash in the E60 although have heard rumors it can mess up the sat nav, I need four speakers so its going to come to 80 quid. But may also install additional tweeters in the rear can I just splice the exisiting wires and run them to the tweeters also or do they need a new feed?

    The second choice is a M Sport boot spoiler as my car never had one and want to get around to getting one and probably will sting me around 80 quid also.

    I am 50/50 at the moment although a guy I work with tried to persuade me saying I spend a considerable amount of time driving to/from work everyday and will benefit more from the speaker upgrade.


    Cheers

    Chris

    Dogsoldier had a Carbon Look Rear bumper insert which looked Good, it was subtle (Non-M like) but suited the car. That! with a couple of front Carbon look splitters (Real carbon ones are just money pissed up against the wall!!), would IMHO look aggressive enough to get the thumbs up from kids on the side off the road, (ie chavvy enough but Not OTT.)

    I have black plastic splitters on the front off my e46 and to be honest, they serve two purposes!

    Sacrificial adornments and a very strong but subtle visual impact.

    Cheers for the input

    I wouldnt really fancy the carbon insert espicially as my car is black so would not be noticeable but want to have it OEMish hence the reason I want to go for a M boot spoiler


    Cheers

    Chrissy the rear spoilers are pretty good and very easy to fit. I had one on mine and helped a mate fit one on his.

    I did the rear lip spoiler upgrade. Don't buy a cheap replica as i dud,only to return it and buy an original. It sits so much better and doesn't need 3 tubes of adhesive to keep it in place.

    I would go for the splitter as I don't really care for "high end" audio.
