First of all,

you really need to find out what your speaker is rated to...
Watts and impedence, specifically.

and do you plan on expanding the system??


If you're not gonna put more in the system, then you won't need very much to run it... but some amps only do certain impedences.

Let me know when you find out more about your sub. P/M me.

And, after running all the wiring in the car, if you don't do it all the time, it CAN take YOU 3 hrs. plus to do it yourself.

My Ride: 330i Dinan
Hello

I have a 2003 330i with 12 speakers HK System. All I want is to have a little more juice to the bass. Can I just add an Amp to my existing sub. what kind of Amp and power should I get so that it can be easily install and won't blow my subs out?

No. You need seperate sub. Even if you find a way to do that, it's not gonna sound right.
