    Hello all,

    Sold my A3 a while back, ended up with a Mk1 GTi... Then today I swapped the Mk1 for a Black S3 :yum: (Think Im Hooked?)

    Will get some pictures up asap.

    I do have a problem with the speakers which id like to pick your brains about...
    Seems that only the front door speakers work? The Rear door speakers/Sub arent working? CD Player settings are set to 50/50? Any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    back to topic, is it an aftermarket head unit? if so, a £10 iso plug from an independent audio centre will do the trick!

    Your a nutter mate, perhapsyou'lk stick with this one.

    With reference to your stereo could it be a problem with the amps, if its non-bose, the rears and subs are amped and the front are off the HU. Im ripping out my bose system at the moment if you need anything...

    Ye i miss da S3... always wanted an S4 when i had one though so avoided the temptation of buying another....
    one day maybe! S4 engine/running gear in an S3 would be ideal....

    hi adam, im over in blackburn, lancs: the shop i got it from is called in car hifi. if you pop down to any car audio store andjust explain the situation: 'just got a new head unit and now only my front speakers work' theyll know exactly what u mean.

    Snow is ***** out there! Avoriaz is just above morzine, it snowed after we left then it rained AGAIN... If they do get snow be careful of the off piste... there is a stupidly unstable snow pack out there.
