Are you tired of listening to your old car audio set up? Are you looking to buy a new car sound system for your BMW?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes there are some facts that you need to know about audio systems before you buy one.

So, here are some tips on how to choose the best and most efficient car sound system for your BMW, compiled with the help of

1) First, take note of the amplifiers. An amplifier should produce a high quality of sound out of the audio speaker and will cut out any distortion and maintain a high quality of sound. The amplifier should be mounted in a location in your vehicle that will be open to a good air flow and remain dry.

2) After this you should consider the speakers. The speaker size should conform to the size of your vehicle because too much of a magnet can produce a low quality of sound in smaller cars. However, you need to stick to a budget you can afford and ensure you get speakers that are suited to your BMW. When shopping for speakers and amplifiers it's easy to get carried away, so remember your budget.

3) How about the automatic volume control? This feature allows the audio system to control the volume capacity whilst compensating for speed and wind noise. This is a feature you may want to make sure is available on the audio systems you are looking at.

4) What about the extras? Due to the advances of technology, today's newly developed car audio systems are far more versatile than previous ones. Recent technological add-ons include GPS ability, or a mapping system for directions, audio/video display set up and Bluetooth ready devices.

5) If you're feeling a bit lost, go to your local BMW car parts shop and ask an expert. After this move onto the next store and compare the answers you get. This can be the only way to check if their advice is reliable or whether the staff are just trying to sell you a stereo. Shopping around is the most effective way of making sure you get the best deal on your stereo.

6) Don't play around with the electronics. Unless you are a skilled electrician it is not advisable that you play around with the electronics of your BMW. Instead hire a qualified electrician, this could cost you 100 to 200 pounds.

7) On the other hand perhaps a new stereo isn't the only option. Even though adding a stereo could help bring the technology of your BMW into the 21st century, it is not always the best way to increase your driving experience. This is because older BMWs may be too dated to get the stereo to function properly. If this is the case then you might prefer to buy or lease a vehicle that comes with a brand new audio system. For example, a 3 Series leasing deal from may be the perfect way to replace yoru BMW with a newer model.

If you follow this advice then you should make the right decision when it comes to picking and then installing a new audio system in your BMW.
