    Hi Guys,

    Apologies in advance if this is a stupid question, but do all A3 8Ps come with subs in the boot or some some models?

    Thanks,
    Sach

    The non BOSE cars have a SUB with an amp built in to drive the rear speakers. The BOSE cars have a passive SUB and seperate amplifier.

    The only cars without are these fitted with Chorus radio which has no rear fader option so does not support rear speakers/sub.

    Possibly AndyMac, I think he has a custom sub but not sure if it's for 8L or 8P
