Anyone want Harmon Kardon upgrade for $375?

I just installed an audiophile speaker system ($3000+) from musicarnw.com in my X1 and now have the complete Harmon Kardon system (2 woofers, 2 mids, two tweeters, center sound disperser and upgraded amp) in a box. If anyone wants to upgrade from stock to HK please email me at dougvendors@mac.com.

If you don't have the center speaker over your dash board, I found it won't be a complete HK retrofit.

Beware people....

According to that site, they don't support the E84.
And for the systems they have, they don't give specs, nor the exact version of components used so you can look it up elsewhere.

Sorry folks (and sorry Enrique) - my mistake and not for sale. I discovered that the dealership cannot perform software updates with an after-market amp (it apparently needs the original amp because it sends out some kind of authentication signal - they say they will plug it in for the servicing and then unplug it), so I am saving the original HK amp for future servicing. I would delete this post but couldn't find an option to do that.

Can we make use of the speakers without the rest of the kit just to improve on the standard systems sound?

I noticed the standard sound in he x1 is a bit airy and hollow compared to the e90 which has the same system?

Will just changing the speakers help give it meatier sound ?
