    Bose - RS3

    My car was already made and it came with no options. Having managed to get the Black Styling Pack fitted the only other option I would have wanted was the Bose Pack. I have read loads and things about this saying it is rubbish in the A3 setup and other people saying it is virtually impossible to retrofit and the best option is to upgrade the front speakers to something like Focal as the standard ones are rubbish. Has anyone had any experience in any of the above? Any advice or comments appreciated. Thanks

    To retrofit Bose is not impossible, most people can't wait to get rid of it, so there are plenty of Bose speakers, amp and subs available on ebay. That's the easy bit. The hard bit is rewiring the car. You need the full Bose loom, which is front to back and all the speakers. So it's more involved than going aftermarket and with less of an improvement at the end of it.
    Your money would be far better spent on a stealth sub and some new front components
