When I had to swap my left rear speaker cover for the one from my previous car, I wanted to keep the Bose badge (factory upgraded Bose install in my car). I found out these little rascals are available separately and are dead easy to fit. Not cheap mind!

Here is my old speaker cover:

Here is how the badge is fitted, each badge has two pins which push through the holes in the speaker grating and fold around to secure:

Here are the little chappies, part number A210 817 08 20, cost about £1.93 each I think. Individually wrapped for freshness!

Think the story would end there? Don't be silly!

Might as well fit one to every speaker cover, seeing as MB were too lazy to do so themselves!

can see them now, very trick and looks the biz, does the Bose sound make a huge difference, I used to be really into car hi fi a few years ago, but the sound in my 240 is very wooly it lacks bass, do you think it would be worth while swaping the 6 inch subs for the Bose ones, i have a competition Alpine head unit in the car which i s a bit of a waste with no amps or decent speakers.
I even thought about putting a decent system in my Turbo 2 as you cant here yourself think in the bloddy thing :p

So what do the rear BOSE speakers look like?

The fronts you had pics of looked totally different.

Are the rears still mounted facing the boot?

Don't bother swapping to Bose, aftermarket will be easier to install, will be cheaper and will prolly sound better :) . I am happy with the way Bose sounds however.

The rear speakers are nice :)

Remove them and put something bigger in the boot!

I'm tempted to get some for mine even though BOSE wasn't an option, the only upgrade was to Harmon/Kardon LOGIC 7.

I think BOSE would look better though!

You could always take the back seats out and put some BIG ones in their place, like Chris Eubank did in his Aston Martin :D :D
