BMW 5 Series F11

BMW's gorgeous 5 series F11 model is an extremely popular car and we gets loads of enquiries for this car. To help our customers we have decided to build a page on our website listing the range of  products and services that we offer for this model.



Car Audio:
For an expensive car, the audio system is very disappointing. The display and integration is excellent but the sound quality, and bass from the original speakers / underseat subwoofers is very poor. Even the factory upgraded sound system on some models leaves alot to be desired. The main problem with the newer BMW models is size and position of the speakers! The front and rear speakers are very small at only 100mm diameter and 40mm depth which is tiny compared to other german cars such as VW Golf ( 165mm front speaker ) and Audi A5 ( 200mm front speaker ). As the speaker position is so small we must put in really good speakers to compensate. We offer fantastic car audio upgrades for the F10 models.
To save our customers money and to give them the best bang-per-Euro we offer 3 upgrade packages:
STAGE 1 Upgrade - €649 FITTED
STAGE 2 Upgrade - €1095 FITTED
STAGE 2.5 Upgrade - €1595 FITTED
STAGE 3 Upgrade - €2195 FITTED

STAGE 1 Upgrade
€649 fitted with 4 speakers and sound deadening:

1.    Audison Prima Co-Axial speakers ( 80watts ) x 2 ( Front doors )
These excellent 4" Audison speakers are direct replacement for the original BMW front door speakers. These Audison speakers use BMW connections and bolt pattern which means no cutting or modification of the bmw original wiring harness. These speakers will significantly improve sound quality, definition and sound stage over the BMW original speakers but please remember that as they are the same physical size as the BMW speakers, they will not improve bass. These speakers are happy running of the BMW original headunit or can be amped in the future for extra output. 

2.    Skinz Expert sound deadening material 3mm ( Back of front door cards ) 
Developed to take noise and vibration control to another level when installing your Car Audio products. Inherent problems due to road noise and car panel vibration which can be caused by the mechanical movement and the displacement of air by speakers has a negative effect on the SPL and sound quality of the car audio system.
Skinz has a 3mm thickness and specially designed textured surface offers greater damping with increased sound wave diffusion than other products available, giving you the highest quality musical basis from any system. 

3.    Audison Prima Co-Axial speakers ( 80watts ) x 2  ( Rear speakers )

These excellent 4" Audison speakers are direct replacement for the original BMW front door speakers but also include a seperate crossover network and tweeters.

3.    Audison 4 Channel SR series Amplifier ( 360watts )

This brilliant 4 channel amp from Audison will be mounted discreetly in the boot and will run the new front Audison Components and the BMW original subwoofers under the front seats. These original BMW subwoofers are actually decent quality but they are woefully under-powered by the BMW factory headunit. When you add the Audison amp to these subwoofers, it really brings the system alive and provides decent bass as well as Crystal clear mids and highs from the Audison components.

4.    Audison pro amp cable and special no cut harness
This is a special harness that allows us to add an amplifier and run the speakers and subs without having to modify the cars existing wiring harness.

3.    Audison Prima S8-4 Subwoofers X 2
Audison Prima Subwoofers have been designed with electro-acoustic parameters that maximize performance for the factory box available below the seats. The ABS plastic basket, reinforced with fiberglass, and the acoustic structure featuring a front magnet, provide for a minimal installation depth for a perfect compatibility with the whole range. Two 5 mm polyurethane gaskets, supplied, allow the subwoofer to fit perfectly to the box, decoupling it from vibration. 
The 200 mm (8″) APBMW S subwoofers allow a “direct replacement” of the OEM speakers underneath the front seats, making the most of the factory acoustic load and generating deep and crisp low frequencies. The Neodymium magnet used on S8-4 allows for greater power and control than ferrite, while maintaining the depth of installation unaltered. Again these will  plug directly into BMW wiring connectors so not cutting or joining ( Clean installation that is reversible)  

4.    Audison Prima Co-Axial speakers ( 80watts ) x 2  ( Rear speakers )

Check out two vehicles that we have carried out Stage 3 audio jobs on:

BELOW IS AN STAGE 3 JOB THAT WE COMPLETED ON A 2017 BMW G30 520D MSPORT

We did a very careful / Clean installation including using the latest Audison speakers which are exact replacement sizes and even have the BMW connections on them. The Audison subwoofers are also direct fit and again terminated with BMW connections so they simply plug in. But the most integrated part of the install was the range of Audison input and Output Harnesses we used to allow us to fit the Audison 8 channel amp without cutting or modifying again of the cars existing wiring. This is a huge PLUS for our customers as all wiring is left original and if required ( say upon car sale for example ) the full Audison system can be removed and the car's original speakers and subwoofers refitted and the car returned to its original condition without cutting wiring!

The installation took us nearly 15 hours but was completed carefully and to a very high standard. None of the panel trims were marked or none of the fragile trims clips were damaged or broken. Clean neat installation takes time but the results are stunning.

When the installation was finished we calibrated and set up the system using the latest Audison installer software. The system now has real power and presence and the mix of the upgraded speakers / subwoofers and the added power of the Audison amp really works!

None of the Audison system is visual anywhere in the cabin and the only sign that anything has been upgraded is the hugely improved Acoustic performance and the 8 channel amp mounted high on the boot side panel. 





Exhaust Upgrades:

We offer several exhaust upgrades for the BMW F11. We offer both performance enhancing and cosmetic only upgrades. There are two main types of rear bumpers , the M-sport style and the SE style , depending on which model your car is there are different options.

M-SPORT Model
This is the M-sport style. We offer a replacement rear bumper insert (diffuser) which has a hole for an exhaust tip on either side of the car  , this allows for us to fit a quad exhaust rear section. The rear bumper insert comes in a matt black finish , made from plastic and is very high quality. The rear exhaust section is manufactured in 304 grade stainless and is finished with mirror polished exhaust tips. The bumper insert and exhaust package totally changes the look of the rear of car.

This is done by our trained professional bodyshop staff to make sure it is an impeccable job. When the bumper is ready we then manufacture the rear exhaust section . This is manufactured in 304 grade stainless steel and is finished in mirror polished exhaust tips. Our rear exhaust package for the BMW F11 SE totally changes the look of the rear of the car making it look alot sportier.

PERFORMANCE EXHAUST UPGRADES
On the BMW F11 diesel models we can make a larger bore exhaust system , remove the cat and the DPF unit , all of these will help make the exhaust more free flowing which in turn increases the power output of the car. If you increase the exhaust and remove the cat / DPF the power gains can be very dramatic after the car has been properly mapped. 

Our Price for a professional DPF / Cat removal pipe manufactured and fitted to you F10 520d is about € 499. This job takes 1 day to complete.
*** Please note - you will have to get the car remapped immediately after we remove DPF to turn of DPF function in ECU as car will not drive properly when DPF removed until professionally remapped. We do not offer the ECU Remap service but most Dyno / ECU Tuners do ***

Left is a picture showing a BMW DPF unit on the left and a replacement pipe with a new flexi on the right side.
