    Whatever you do you'll still need to run a proper fused power cable from the battery to the boot. All other connections can be picked up from the Bose amp, but you can't run an amp using the feeble 5amp cable the Bose unit uses, it'll just keep blowing fuses and eventually the wiring will catch fire.

    Through the ECU cover is usually the easiest way to get through the bulkhead.
    Not done a new shape A3 but this thread may give you some pointers:

    yes except for the power - the bose amp just doesnt have a big enough cable to supply anything decent - but you can remove the amp/sub and tap the speaker wires and line out at the bose amp connector easily

    No it won't - Bose amp is 100w into 2 ohms which is pretty efficient, 500w will draw something like 10amps at least, not a good idea on a cable rated for half that.
