New f55 - Need to upgrade stereo

Just got my new 5-door diesel. To get a good deal I bought a demo-car which did not have the HK stereo option (Basic - 4 door speakers and small under seat subs). Love the car so far apart from the sound system which is really poor.

I plan to start with a building a under-boot-floor-sub, this weekend and then upgrade the door speakers later on.

My first thought was to get speaker signal from one of the rear door speakers, but I guess they have a lowcut at 100hz or so, does anyone know? I could off course remove a seat and get signal from one of the under seat subs, but I would prefere to tap in to a full frequecy source.

Any suggestions regarding tapping into the factory audio system are welcome!

My aim was to finish the sub this weekend, but now the car had started popping out of first gear, so I'm not shure if I will keep it since this took all the fun out of buying a new car...
Some F56s seem to have a transmission issue where this happens. Take it back to the dealer and they'll likely swap your transmission. Still no fun, though.
