Arrow Bowers & Wilkins Upgrade

Hello,

I found a Site where you can Buy the B&W Tweeters and Door Speekers for the G30

http://www.gzcarphone.com/bmw-5-seri...light_p71.html

http://www.gzcarphone.com/bmw-5-seri...eeter_p64.html

Has anyone tried here?

I have the HiFi System and it is not really good so i wanted to know if anyone tried it if it is better than before.

Thank you!

I'm thinking about such an upgrade, but just wondering whether there is a downgrade in sound quality compared to HK speakers, as you have to replace the bottom speakers?
