We're you able to pull the speaker grill out from the front of the door.

I took a pic of my door panel off,
The red arrow is where my speaker cover is.
I see 2 silver screws which I circled in red.
And I circled in blue another 4 pieces, not sure what they are? Do they unscrew? Do I need to open that up to take the speaker cover out?

unscrew and push out slowly out

you can easily see which one is which just by putting grille above the doors and comparing those holes placement with screws in your doors

p.s. those black ones are some sort of clips

Thanks man! I almost gave up on it.

Can't even sleep because I have a door panel missing from my car right now lol.

I'll try that first thing in the morning.

Did you use the speakers that came with the B&W set or you kept the stock H&K?

I was thinking about keeping the original ones, but I realized that the new one have the silver lining around it, which I think help with the lighting

Dude I literally just finished the whole setup
5 mins ago!! I've been at it for 5 hours lol.
My whole shirt is drenched in sweat, it was a crazy humid day here today.

I kept breaking clips, but I purchased like 15 of them from bmw so it was alright.

At the end, they look amazing. It was totally worth it!!

Thank for all your help

Yeah for sure!! I needed every single one of those too.

You know I haven't really tested out the sound yet, I was just so amazed with the lighting that I didn't care about anything else. I will need to check them out tomorrow.

What were your thoughts on the sound?

Sorry bro, didn't know this msg was for me.
I put the speaker in already, wasn't able to take pics of it.

I did take some videos while I was doing the install. If you decide to purchase them and need some help with installation, PM me and I'll try to send them to you

Did you guys both have the Hi-Fi system when replacing these? Or did you have HK and moved to these?

Curious on the difference these vs HK stock.

The look is amazing..!!

Hey, I did replace these with my HK with these speakers. The sound quality is not as good as HK but the lighting looks really good.
