First let me start of with WOW what an improvement over the stock amp. I own a no line 2014 X5 sDrive 35i (F15) and have the Hi-Fi stereo and it just simply did not perform, volume was low and sound was muddy and distorted at higher volumes. A lot of the shops I talked to didnt have a plug and play type system and required adding amps to the area next to the battery or in the well where the spare tire would be, price was high and required taking too much apart to wire and of course new speakers were suggested which brought the price point beyond what I was willing to spend. After being told that coding would be required to make head unit accept the new amps I was really turned off and figured I was going to have to settle with bad sound. Naturally this wont work for me so I started doing a lot of reasearch through various forums and shops about how to improve the sound.

Again WOW. So I pulled the trigger and bought the amp. I also purchased the trim removal kit (highly recommend doing this). From time of purchase to deliver was less than a week, required signing for so no package thiefs! And the communications about shipping time was on point. Great care was taken in packaging. Upon opening there was the amp, a bracket, usb cable, connection cables and the trim removal kit, a sticker and a invoice. The installation instructions were provided in a email link and were VERY EASY to understand, no questions at all. Customer service was/is very friendly. Install was straight forward, fits perfectly and there were absolutely no is this going to break if i remove it moments. Install was quick, spent more time eating my lunch in the middle than installing, total time from start to finish (including a sandwich) 45 minutes. After reconnecting the battery and firing her up I was immediately immersed in a full, clear body of sound, the highs were crisp, the mids were clear and the bass was full with some added depth and punch.....All this from a plug and play amp! The amp comes to you pre tuned based on your vin and current stereo system and if you feel the need to dial it in even further the included usb allows you to plug in to your laptop and tune even further, I havent done this as I dont feel its needed but did check it out and gotta say, pretty awesome. So in conclusion if you are looking for an amp upgrade, this is DEFINITELY the one to get and well worth it.

These guys are the best! No job is too small and every car in their care matters. I first took my little Mazda to the company peeps a few months ago and was super impressed when they fixed a wiper issue that I had not mentioned but had bugged me for years (had learned to live with it because my previous auto service kept saying was 'nothing to worry about'). Went back recently and booked my little Mazda in for 100,000 km service, couldn't be happier with the quality and cost of their excellent work. Highly recommended!
