Upgrading to MB-Quarts

Is it worth upgrading the HK sound system to MB-Quarts?? If so, will I need an amp to add more power or is the factory system sufficient?????? I am new to audio so please bear with me since these are basic questions

How many watts are the upgraded ($600 options) Harmon Kardon system on the 3-series???????? Is it like 200 watts RMS? I know it's like 10 or 12 speakers so it should be a lot of watts. They never wrote or mention the watts of the HK system or at least I never saw it on the speakers or on the marketing brochure.

Search old posts for "HK upgrade" or similar, and you'll see everyone recommends upgrading the amps if you're going to upgrade the speakers. I just did the back with Stealthboxes and an Alpine amp and thinking about JLs or a/d/s in the front (note I dealer I just talked to said the MB Quarts are REALLY bright, so might want to take a listen before you buy -- maybe just his opinion).
Better picture coming!
