New Owner have a couple (a lot) of questions

I recently purchased a 2004 325xi, I love it, but there are a few questions I have to aid me in some purchases/upgrades. Good thing I’m no longer married or she’d end up killing me lol. Anywho here we go, any help would be appreciated (and sorry if this has all come up before I admit I’m a noob at this stuff)

Amp - I looked on RealOEM.com and the location for an amp appears to be in the trunk near my battery, but I pulled the cover off and all I see is the battery, so does this mean I have no amp? Is it in a different location? If there is no amp are these models pre wired for it and I just have to get the amp and bracket(s) and if so best place to purchase on (ebay maybe?)

CD Changer – In the trunk there is a hatch that has 2 shelves I assume I purchase the changer and brackets and install there, I have heard that the car is pre wired for this as well. Any suggestions on where to purchase the changer?

Security system – Same deal as the CD changer, I hear it is pre wired but that’s about all I know, any good sites on how to’s to get this installed? Good place to purchase a plug and play kit?

Garage door opener – Same deal as security system

Bluetooth – would like to have considering I have heard the car phone that came with the car is near impossible to get reactivated (well I hear you can get the Assist program at $200 a year and with limited service) Any info or sites to check out would be appreciated

Thanks in advance
Curt

What I know, is that the amp is usually on the other side of the trunk from th battery(drivers side, very similar location)

Ebay on the cd changer, but, do you have an ipod? if so, I would have someone check to see if you cna just add an Ipod adapter to the rear of your stereo, i know some of the newer ones have an input for this already on the stereo, and you cna just buy the adapter, and probably cheper than the cd changer

Go to your local stereo store and ask them to install one, or find the factory one for you.
Know nothing about the garage door.

Bluetooth thing is really expensive to add if it did not come with the car, somewhere in the neighborhood of $600 to 1000. Buy an ear piece!
