    Audi a3 8p bose sound system

    Hello,i have the 2001 audi a3 8L and i found BOSE sound system from 2005 audi a3 8P 3,2 quattro....MY question is will this system fit on my 8L,talking about the subwoofer,amplifier and speakers,and cd changer? ALSO is 120 EU a good price for all these stuff? Thanks in advance.I was looiking in the internet and i found difference between 8L and 8P BOSE subwoofer.This is my main concern,i guess the 4 speakers will fit,but what about the subwoofer and amplifier and changer?

    No, none of it will fit - it is a completely different system
    The speakers are too big and the sub is a competely different shape. Even if you find an 8L system it is a pointless upgrade anyway as the work involved is collosal for a small improvement in SQ. you need the entire Bose wiring loom, all new speaker cable front and back, new loom from the HU to the trunk, new loom to the subwoofer and new power connections. If you want better sound from the stock system then get one of my stealth subs - much better than Bose and less work.
