Interesting stuff.
Can't wait to get my car so I can look into upgrading the audio system :)
Just have to decide if I go the budget route (like the plug and play products above) or high end route (changing out all the factory speakers, dampening the doors etc.)

The one I test drove had the sound pack, just like the one I have ordered.
When I turned up the volume, the interior panels on the doors started to rattle and make unwanted noises. Also, the speakers seemed to struggle with higher volumes. I have to find out what I want to do with the door speakers when I get the car.

Bought two of this today (I don't even know if it fits under the seats in the up!):http://www.nvx.com/qbus8-quickbass-universal-system-powered-sub.html

You can get them for 145USD on eBay.com (use the "best offer" function).

if you connect up a sub, any sub to the standard head unit via the speaker wires, does that mean it will play all sound through the sub not just bass? I want a sub in my up but don't really want to mod the head unit.

You will have to use hi-level out from the head unit (tap into the speaker signal).The sub amp will send the correct signal to the sub (cut off all high frequencies that can damage the sub).
You can adjust the cut-off frequency at the sub amp, see the attached pic for an example:
