BMW f30 base system upgrade

Iím wondering how would I connect my aftermarket amplifier to my bmw. It has the base system which is terrible. Iíve seen the technic wiring loom but is this available in the UK? Also is there a diagram available to know what wires would need to be sliced to connect to the amplifier

Always use a harness when splicing and wires so you do not make a mess of the factory harness.

Very similar to what I did, although there is a better way.

I'm in the UK and my 2013 F31 has the Base system.
I ordered the stereo adaptor below for £19 which terminates the speaker connections as ISO connectors so you don't need to cut the wires.

The standard speaker outputs and inputs can then be run to your preferred location (the boot in my case) with ISO extension leads.
