In my original post I referenced getting a good recommendation on a local shop. Going to a reputable shop is VERY important. I wouldn't trust the high school dropouts at Circuit City with a Hyundai. I've had a local shop do work on both a previous BMW and our current Audi. (Our current BMW is an E36 convertible and, due to road noise and ease of theft, the stereo is just the stock "Business" system plus the CD changer) I have had no problems, either mechanical or with any warranties as a result of the mods and everything has always looked great (hardly noticable if at all). On the BMW (an E30), I replaced the head unit, added two amps, and replaced all of the speakers. The new front speakers required new cut-outs in the front door panels. One amp was under the passenger seat and the other was under the trunk decklid. Seats had to be removed and wires had to be run throughout the car. This was all done when the car was less than a year old (back in '91). Regardless, I never had a problem with any of it (over a period of 8 years and 125k miles). The work on the Audi is much more modest, but still, no problems (and that work was done when it was new in '97). How is any of this any different than all the guys on this board doing performance mods? (Which I'm not opposed to either, but that's a different subject)
