: I just picked up my 2000 740i Sport. I'm a little dissapointed in the sound quality I get out of the DSP sound system. The base is not giving a really full sound.
: Has anyone made any modifications on their 7'er to overcome this?
What you describe is typical of the '2000 unit. My car was delivered last August and I found the sound system far inferior to the same unit on a '98 740iL. The DSP controls minimally affect the base. Although BMW would not acknowledge it, it is likely that used a different suppier in '2000. I would ask your dealer to take a look at your unit, but I would bet there will be no improvement. if you listen to another '2000 I think you will see the same issue. Fortunaltey, the car is so terrific otherwise, after a while the radio annoyance fades, although frankly the sound system on a '2000 Jeep Larado is far superior.
