    No im looking for the difference between the standard speaker set-up and the Audi sound system. Not the B&O, cheers though mate

    Hopefully someone else can answer that one, I was responding to an earlier request for a comparison between the Audi System and the B&O. I do however know someone with the stock system, so if I can get them and the other guy with the Audi sound system in the same place at the same time I will endeavour to compare them for you :)

    Cheers bud, i really am starting to regret not adding on the Audi sound system now, due to my 8p having a subwoofer built in to the boot and it does really kick nicely in all honesty.. im just hoping that the standard system in the 8v will still have a little kick even without the subwoofer...

    Regarding bass, I think you'll be fine. I believe the speakers themselves are the same units in the stock system as in the audi sound system. You just get the additional centre and sub with the upgrade. I noted in my comparison that the sub actually did very little in either system, as the woofers were very capable of pushing out the bass. In my opinion the biggest benefit in the upgrade is the centre speaker, followed by the sub. I wouldn't be surprised if the sub could be retro-fitted.....

    As this is the photo thread here's a photo of the stock speakers (just to keep it on topic! ;) )

    Superb, youve helped me out alot! I just dont fancy having the 'tinny sound' when the bass is trying to pass through the speakers thats all. I see you have a glacier white a3 too, i wasnt sure whether to go for it due to phantom black looking so appealing but i did in the end.. glad i did thought after seeing some pictures, it looks absolutely stunning. Really cant wait to get it now.

    Looks absolutely lovely in sharaz red. If I get rid of My Jag Xf this is the A3 I will go for. Is this the cylinder on demand ? If so what MPG are you getting although it is not yet run in would love to know. Also the road you took the pics on looks great what part of the country are you in ? Real drivers road.

    Great Pics been serching google for ages to fine some decent photos of this car in this lovely colour Thanks Leelee

    I'm assuming from the parking you're of the fairer sex. :undwech:

    I guess the car was parked wonky on purpose so that it was impossible for your friend to park too close (opps, did i just say that?) After all parking is defianatly a non contact activity, especially for a new Audi!
