    Thanks Andy. I think I won't bother with the rears since they will not bring that much improvement as I've heard.

    Please can someone recomend a better quality replacement thats not too expensive for the front set.

    Yes , Infinity kappa's 50.5 or Rainbow SLX230's, both 5.25", both a pig to fit, but worth it.
    Also Dynamat the hell out of both the door cards and the doorskins.

    No, just used custom speaker adapters made from MDF. It is a bid fiddly as the speakers are mounted at an angle facing up, but the mounting posts are square to the door card.
    I did have to hacksaw about 3mm off the inside of the door (the bit that doesn't show) so that the magnet cleared the inside door frame when refitting. This would depend on the exact speakers to decide to fit and probably wasn't necessary but made it easier to get the cards back on.
    No, unfortunately I'm not going to the driver show.
