    @Sarvesh Korde,

    You can do this setup, but you will need min 2 and max 3 amps if you also want subwoofer later. Or you would need a multichannel sound processor to get these many channels working. For rear channel you will need to split HU output of Rear to Rear Door and Rear co-axial 6x9. In this case you will need a 4 channel for rear 4 speakers (2coax in doors and 2 in tray). Make sure you buy a capacitor or 2 for this much powered setup. You can add capacitor later, no need immediately, will help the amp cope up with the power peak requirements.

    You could go for 1din 3 pre-out JVC KD-R736BT about Rs. 7.5K in market including bluetooth. But you will need connects2 for steering interface. And blue me function could be compromised. For Stock HU you will need a good quality line convertor or a line-in (input) compatible amp. Blaupunkt makes a VFM 2 channel and one 4 channel amp EMA series check those.

    Do check better speaker deals on snapdeal etc.

    @Anirudh Blaupunkt blue magic series cx170 cx130 tl170 all available online at snapdeal and amazon. If you are looking for that little bass effect, I think you need to add a sub woofer of some sort. I was also at your position and without changing the HU and by just adding a sub woofer powered by a speaker level input amplifier, I was happy.

    @Anirudh, please mention your budget for the same.
    Here is a guesstimate of a good sounding speaker update setup.
    Component Speakers - 7-9K
    Amp - 5-6k
    Woofer - 4.5k
    Wiring Kit and Installation - 3k
    (all approx prices)

    There is no fixed buget as such i just want an better sounding ICE. Why am i skeptical is at the start for for a sake of a demo i had connected the Blaupunlt Gt 65 components and disconnected the stock tweeter .The blaupunkt after marker was sounding worse than the stock speaker and investing in the blue series without an demo , not that i dont trust you fiatians openion. These speakers arnt avalible in the market only if i get an demo ill would go for em with my eyes closed

    I would always suggest something better like Morel or Infinity.
    But can you invest close to 20k-25k for a four channel setup? If so 50.11CS kappa (5.5 inch components) are available on ebay for cheap about 7K per pair. You can buy co-ax for rear from same brand and add an amp like 470SF or 455EMA.

    Note Infinity kappa CS are 2ohm stable, so they are best run on amplifier.

    Im just curious here. What if... A big if i want to change my head unit, is there an good panel you guys have tryed or tested and which could probably work along with my steering controls and do the exact same thing like the B&M. The eco option i wanted to try but thats in the distant future. Thx a lot

    I am afraid Blue Me will have to be sacrificed. But you could get smartphone compatible HUs, android and iphone compatible. In case of HU upgrades a 3RCA or 3 pre-out headunit is the way to go.

    You can choose Alpine, Pioneer, Kenwood and other brands. A price bracket needs to be ascertained before someone can suggest models to look for.

    Pioneer and JVC have a steering control compatibility module that is available for abount 2.5-3K. You will be able to retain your Steering Controls but not B&M.

    Do they nowo_O which models soo i could think of that option rather than trying to retail the stock hu. I would love to have blue tooth ans well as aux input and at the same time not being that expensive.
