    Basically route the wire from the battery, under the airbox and into the plastic casing running up the bulkhead into near where the pollon filter is. I found a grommet to the far passenger side of the pollon filter housing to run the wire through into the car. Its then just a case of routing it through to the back under the plastic sill cover and rear quarter trim into the boot area!

    Cheers for that i did it in the end by putting it through the door might re-try it that way though

    its alot harder doing this in an audi isnt it! how the hell do you get the rcas into the back of the headunit neatly?? do you have to rip every plastic bit out?

    Is it an aftermarket headunit or standard?

    I took the large panel from around the steering column out which gave enough room to feed the wires into the rear of the center part of the dash. I ran these along the back of that panel, down to the sill and backwards to the boot.

    Running RCA's is easy, just remove the glovebox, this gives you a huge amount of space and access to the back of the HU.
