Sorry - I mis-read your post the first time and thought you were speaking of the grills on the interior door panels.

Since I don't have M-Audio I'm afraid I've got no suggestions for the sub :(

There really is no subwoofer grill on M-Audio subs. See attached photos.

Are you talking about the small plastic vent grills up on top of the rear deck?

See attached photo.
later models had a grill attached to the subwoofer...


{ignore red circle}


the woofers themselves also have a different part number than earlier woofers... i tried to find out if there was a difference between them however no results...

Hi. Mine is a 2001. I think BMW started putting those subwoofer baskets on model year 2002 and 2003.
Yeah, now I remember, the BMW engineers/designers were down to two potential changes but only had the staffing and time to do one.

BMW were either going to cover the sub woofers with the grill or replace the in dash cassette with a CD player. They did extensive market research which yielded that the speaker covers where the MOST DESIRABLE of the two options. Way to go... :haha2:
