Ok I know asking a question around here is like pissing in the wind, lately, but I will try. So as everyone may know my HK crappy amp or maybe the radio is going out. If the car sits in the heat thats when the trouble starts. I called a trusted car audio shop about a new system they said around $900 to start and goes up from their for a new system but it would have a lot of options. Thats installed. I am thinking about looking into doing my on install. I have read Rastoff wright up about his ordeal. Has anyone els done a install on a Gen2 car? Why not a amp? I do not want to pay $1000 for a pice of crap that will just go out agin. I can't find a R58 amp on fleaBay. The R58 amp bolts up differently because it is under the drivers seat, that has to come out to get to the amp. Yes I am in a bad mood, I am half way through my coffee, maybe I will feel better when I am done. but for now I am off to the Mini dealer.
