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.
