    I\'m sure this has been asked before many times but

    What's the most common method of getting an amp power lead from the battery to the boot?
    Im sure there's a post that tells you how somewhere but i can't find it!

    Usually on most cars there is a small whole in the back of the engine bay near the glove box that you can squeeze it through. If not it's suggested that you drill one and plug it with a gromit to avoid water seeping in. I haven't fitted an amp to my A3 yet so not sure if this hole is there or not. check it out.

    DRILL A HOLE? NOOO!

    If you remove the scuttle panel under the windscreen, you will see the pollen filter on the passenger side. Now under just infront and to the side of this is a rubber blanking plug about 15mm diamter. I made a slit in this and fushed the power leads, and any other leads needed through it. This way you dont have to make and 'holes' and you can run the cable up the trunking behind the airfilter for a nice tidy install. The cable will then drop down behind the glove box just in the right place!

    nooooo dont use the plug in the top of the scuttle pannel by the pollen filter, there is a plug at the back of the engine bay that you can poke the lead through. if you do it in the top then you are quite likely to get a water ingress( ive seen it loads of times!!!)
