get an amp that can take highlevels to and then push to a sub. and tap the speaker wires for signal. thats the easy way.
the harder way involves much more messing with the amp and wiring... there is some good info here in the audio form about the 5 series and how to do some of these things or how to avoid it.
You may see if bav auto has a bass link for your ride. That would be plug-n-bump.
no offense, but i wouldn't recomend this set up. High level inputs are weak and low fidelity. This is what i would do...
Buy a line level converter (this changes speaker level to line level). Directions for use should be included in the package (it is pretty strait forward). Tap into the factory amp turn lead (you can use the violet wire, it will work).
You now have RCA's and a remote wire. All that is left, is to run your power wire (in trunk), find a good ground (in trunk), and hook up your sub.
...if none of this makes sense, let a professional do it. It is easy, but not extremely easy.
