Adding tweeters does not require coding. I am selling tweeters / mids and you can find details in the classified section.

Re: amp / sub
If you like the current sound of your BMW, yes you can add amp/ sub without coding. But your installer will be adding LOC.

Coding to hi-fi HU helps if you are going for alpine kit upgrade or complete aftermarket sound system.

Some use DSP or clean sweep to get clean signals from the headunit.

So it is down to personal choice which route you want to go.
