When I enter my car, 2019 540i w/HK stereo, it says "THE BMW AMPLIFIER UPGRADE ISN'T AVAILABLE FOR YOUR 2019 BMW 5 SERIES SEDAN WITH HARMAN KARDON / PREMIUM (TOP HI-FI) AUDIO SYSTEM"

Not sure what technical reason there is for not offering amp for HK systems, but that's what it says. Could be that the 1300W Revenant amp is only a little more than twice the standard 600W in the HK system and it may not seem enough an upgrade for $1000. Changing to the same car but with standard Hi-Fi systems will show the Revenant amp is an available upgrade.

I will likely be adding the Ghost Subs within the next couple months. I like the HK system just fine. It sounds better than the HK system in my old F30, but it really lacks adequate base.
I've had the same exact experience on their website. I guess I'll have to call to figure out what the deal is. Thank you for the reply.

Update: I just sent them an information request on their website. I will update this thread when I hear back from them.
