Since the battery is in the trunk you'll be fine with 10. If you wanted you could go for 8. Since the battery isnt up front theres no need for 4.

It would also be easiest to run the RCAs under the drivers dash then under the kick panel and door sills.

Do you have a the factory HU or a CD player? The factory is removed with a special screw head that would be easiest to go to the dealer and ask to borrow. Otherwise you'll need an extensive tool set and hope you have the right head. If its aftermarket, just take off the faceplate and undo the retaining clips.

Removing the stock deck requires a 5/64 hex key (thats what i used removing mine) so rather than buy a bmw one see if you have one or can get one cheaply.
and like he said; the battery is going to be only a few feet from the amp. If you mount the amp on the opposite side of the trunk go with 8; but you can go with 10 if you keep it close.

Liberalism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere can take care of themselves.
