Don't go anything smaller than a 6.5 or you will be disappointed.

6.5's fit with little amount of work. You will want to mount to the door frame, not the door card too.

I would like to stick to Focal because I have yet to experience a better sounding speaker than what they produce, but any suggestions will be welcome.

Did you keep the OEM unit Steve?
Nah man i've changed to an Alpine deck. Model A117-E from memory.. Keep in mind that i had the single din CD deck to begin with so it would have been heaps of effort going double din, otherwise i would have.

Lol really? I have 6's all round with two additional tweeters - most of the car is fitted with dynamat. Believe you me, i am the furthest from being disappointed..

oh and you can get 6's which have more rms power than 6.5's... works both ways i guess.

Slappers FTW. Low standards and they'll do just about anything.

They were actually strippers from Geelong. It was awesome, the club I was at had a stripper pole - they were at home.

Quick noobie question again, The Hamman Fog Light covers for the M3/Mtech bumper, Do you specifically have to order them to fit the right bumper or are the foglight inserts the same size on the M3/Mtech Bumper?

Just don't wanna blow $70 on the wrong insert size

M3 and Mtech2 fog light cutouts are different size.

Hey shook, inside the casings are the actual drives SATA or IDE drives?

I'm just asking cause I want to partition the drive with a XP OS and use it as a swap in drive on my laptop.
