It is perfectly positioned to hit my knee and knock the mirror out of view. Mine only has the stem and not the knob or whatever covered it. The picture here kind of looks like there's a knob that covers it. I've had trouble identifying the part or seeing a good representation. Am I just missing it?
If I were to try to get a decent stereo in an e9, that speaker setup -- dual angled midrange speakers in the center, tweeters on either end of the dash and presumably rear speakers on the hat shelf and a sub in the trunk firing through the armrest -- is about as good as you can do in our cars.
I applaud the effort (and $$$) it must have taken to create this CSL tribute, but I can't say I'm warm to the combination of all out race car exterior and mainly luxury interior. My hat's off to the owner though; it has to be a hoot to drive!
