    no Andy Mac sub does not work in an 8P :(
    I have tried to get this before but the boot shape is apparently different so the sub wont fit. Shanes boot build is nice but still eats into the boot space which isnt something i wanted so i just gave up.

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/new-a3...s/78141-andymac-stealth-sub-8p-completed.html

    It does fit the sportback but you have to push out the ridiculous sculpted side of the boot trim. Would you believe Audi redesigned the sub to accomodate these pointless scoops.

    There's nothing to see, just imagine the scooped bit of the boot panel pushed out from behind. Not very elegant, and as you can't hide the amp it's not really a stealth install which is why I don't recommend them for the SB.
    As you can see the OE sub is scooped at the front, whereas the non SB one is flat. This is purely to accomodate the pointless scoop in the side panel which then fouls the stealth sub, so has to be pushed out and padded with rubber foam in order to keep it away from the sub.

    Just the above, or the magic sub that doesn't need any amplification at all and can be fitted in the glovebox

    You could loose the spare wheel and drop a box in the wheel well like I did you'd just have to raise the floor a bit.

    you can see mine below It could of gone a lot lower but I rarely use the boot so I wasn't fussed plus the sub I chose has quite a big stack. Painted my sub guard Gloss white to match my car too but dont have a photo.

    I bet! I'm wanting to go the same kind of route with mine, the wheel well seems to be the ideal place.

    Yeah just make sure you have road assistance as if you have a blow out your screwed lol. It happened to me last year on the A1 luckily I had audi assist and as I was on the motorway they arrived with in 20mins. Good way to save fuel when your on the back of a lorry.
