Im just wondering 1) how to remove the factory stereo (a site with some pictures would be most helpful) and 2) if anyone knows any good subwoofers that would hook into the stock radio. I know about basslink but I've heard that theres too much bass and not enough treble. I was thinking I would get a new head unit but I don't know how good that would look in a bimmer. Any suggestions? Thanks

The stock stereo is quite easy to remove. The silver/wood trim can be gently prised off starting from the passenger door end. Use something blunt like the handle of a teaspoon. Once removed there are a couple of screws holding the head unit in place. Remove these and the HU just slides out.
The weak part of the stock system is the speakers. If you replace the speakers with some good quality ones it will sound a lot better.
I still use the stock system. I replaced the front speakers with some extremely good components and some ok ones in the back (often disconnected). The rear speaker output drives an amp and sub mounted over the ski hatch (so as to not lose trunk space.
