I ended up getting stung by bloody import duty! Ah well.

What did you pay for the install?

Really? That sucks. I'm guessing that's because the total value of your stuff was over a grand?

Brisbane BMW charged me $528 for installation and coding. So it still came out $600 cheaper than their best price and $1500 cheaper than their initial quote.

Worth every cent though...

new to the forum guys, been reading this thread and it's been really helpful.

Just got a quote from South Yarra - $1,060 for the parts and $600 for the 3 hour installation, so that's $1,660 all up.

But I really wouldn't mind saving ~$500 by driving 1 hour down to Mornington:
http://www.bmwccv.com.au/forums/showthread.php?t=867

anyone know whether the deal is still on and if so, for how long?

That's about the best price that a few people have paid.

Bringing an old post back!

Can anyone recommend a place to install in Melbourne?

Got a quote for the kit + corner mouldings from BM Mini for about $600 delivered, seems reasonable.

DIY, or otherwise try Mornington BMW. Bit of a drive but they have done these installs before and will prevent any mishaps.

Theres plenty of DIY install guides floating around, took me about a day going slow and taking care, overall its an easy install, hardest is just removing/replacing the car trim. Requires a code too for the plug and play kit.

It cost me about ~$550 (maybe a bit more now with lower AUD) to import from overseas, plus ~$400 install at a dealer (or DIY if you can code and don't mind pulling the car apart yourself)

I only got the subs as a goodwill gesture from BMW Aus, as I had problems with my first Alpine kit and spent 9 months faffing around with BMW Sydney.

Pretty sure they are just stickers that are stuck on post install. Aplpine kit comes with Alpine stickers, perhaps you could search for Harman/Kardon speaker stickers?

Ah, yes, from more searching it seems this is so. Found a set on eBay, $2 each, but postage is $30... typical....

Sorry for being off-topic. I will end this discussion on the stickers now.
