    how big of an upgrade? :)
    my friend has a lot of audio upgrades (lol, maybe a little too much) in his e46 m3....here, i'll just post a link to the stuff he's done to his car:
    http://e46fanatics.com/features/feature.php?news_id=38

    he got most of the audio/visual stuff installed at NEXT Technologies (they also made custom software and the interface for the touch-screen)......i think they're in scottsdale somewhere.

    occasionally we're out at the scottsdale pavillions (saturday nites), if u wanna checkout his car in person....check the SW section on bimmerforums.com

    and whatever u do, do NOT take ur car to audio express for installation.....they'll cut up your carpet & do crappy (and sometimes very unsafe) wire connections._____________________
    checkout link #3, Tricord's E21 site rocks!!!
    also, checkout link #1, E21's on Bimmerforums :)

    try my garage........... :)

    seriously, I've seen lousy work by high end audio shops in my lifetime which is why I do my own installs.

    what are you looking at adding?

    I've add the following (in order) over the years:
    added sub to stock system
    replaced stock amp & speakers keeping original headunit,
    replaced headunit with aftermarket cd/mp3 player,
    replaced CD player with flip out screen and added navigation.

    I've worked on a couple e39 5 series and an 87 3 series.

    I can post pics of my install if you'd like.
