    Bose Audio

    Does this mske that much of a difference? I have fnally found an S3 that I like, but it doesnt have this upgrade, one of the few that I have seen for sale without it!!


    Also, is it hard to convert the centre console from single dinn to double dinn?

    Cheers

    Yes, check the sub in the boot has 2 x 4" drivers that guarantees it's Bose. The non Bose sub has 1 x 6.5" and a metal front panel (Bose is black plastic).
    It should also have a small Black amp in the righthand cubbyhole.
    Bose coming up on the HU display means nothing, you can do this via VAGCOM, it's purely cosmetic, and probably just means the previous owner had the dreaded volume problem and bought a replacement on ebay from a Bose equipped car.
    But as said already, not worth turning down a good S3 just because it doesn't have Bose, the non Bose system is easier to upgrade, so for 300 you can upgrade to a stealth sub and have a much better system than the Bose upgrade.
