    I have the stock subwoofer from my 2001 M Coupe. I've heard that it can fit in the roadsters. I'm not sure if it will sound better though, but for some reason I seem to remember that BMW upgraded the subwoofer in 2000 or 2001. Let me know if you are interested.

    BMW has a "Sunfire" subwoofer/ 400w subwoofer amp upgrade to the already upgraded HK sound system. This applies only to Z3 or M Roadsters built 8/99 or later (which might not include you... sorry).

    If it does apply to you, the list is $695 from the dealers -- but I have seen it discounted to $524.

    It DID substantially improve the sound.

    The subwoofer and subwoofer amp come as one package.

    I have tried to a attach a zip file that contains an Adobe Acrobat PDF file scan of the 10 page instructions for the BMW Sunfire subwoofer/ subwoofer amp kit. It has no pictures, but plenty of diagrams to assist the installation.

    It is a straightforward install in one of the cars for which it was intended: a post 8/99 construction Z3 or M Roadster with the HK sound system already installed.
