:57: Hello all A3 owners,

I'm having real regrats about not getting boss speakers,
Now i've got together enough money to get a new set,
I was wondering if there is someone who'd be kind enough to let me know how to access the door speakers and the little tweekers. Wiring is going to be an issue so if someone can give me some instructions and post some pics that'll be great!! :)
also if someone can tell be what's behind the sidewalls of the boot and how to take them off that'll be great! 1st one to post back may get a chance to date my sister.

2003 A3 8P 2.0FSI sport

The Bose set up in the 8P A3 is not brilliant, and to retrofit it you need to put the Bose amp in and change all the speakers and obviously re wire the car because you will be going from the rear to the front speakers instead of the head unit that he has with the current set up.

He would be far, far better to spend say £100 on a 2 channel amp and the same on a set of front component speakers for the amp. Dead easy to wire in and will give you far better results than adding Bose. If you search the TalkAudio forum you will see some stunning deals on used kit. My mate bought a genesis 2 channel amp and the Genesis A.16 speakes for under £250 for the both, the sound it stunning for the money, it is stunning for £500 or whatever they cost new.

You have to remove the whole door card to get to the front speakers.
Remove the 2 visible screws at each end up near the window.
Then remove the single screw behind the grab handle.
Then pull down the plastic cuff behind the grab handle and remove the 2 main screws hidden behind it.
Lower the window, then pull the whole door card up and out, it will be quite stiff.
Once out you need to unclip the harness wiring and remove the door locking cable to get it completely free
