    You'll have BOSE on your front door speakers...

    When you turn the radio on you get a 'BOSE' symbol displayed.

    no you would not need an amp to install any other headunit.
    the A3 does come with a sub and amp both on Bose and non Bose versions. the difference is that the speakers in the Bose systems are better and are fully amped (all speakers power off the amp in the boot) and the standard systems are half amped (rear speakers are amped while fronts are wired directly to headunit)

    Im sure this is a coding thing, you can have Bose and have it not coded to show the bose logo on the boot up of the stereo

    You'll notice if you have BOSE when you listen to music it should go "boom boom boom" :laugh:

    What does the Bose symbol look like on a Symphony 2+ headunit in a MY2009?

    It was only the early concert and symphony units that displayed Bose on start up. The current units don't display anything nor does the RNS-e units.
