    Just an example but would bose from another model Audi fit another?

    I fancy upgrading to Bose in my S3 and just curious if you can use another models Bose instead of A3 specific

    What else is required to install Bose or is it just plug and play and uses the existing wiring?

    Thanks

    No you need an A3 Bose system, both the speakers and the sub are completely different in other models. Apart from obviously replacing all the speakers and the sub, you'll need to completely rewire the car, so not an easy process. You'll need to run the front speaker loom back to the boot, the rears back to the other side of th boot (drivers side)the sub loom & associated power and mount the amp. As a result you'll have a slightly better sounding system, so really not worth the expense or hassle. Far better to go aftermarket or install one of my stealth subs for a huge improvement.

    Cheers Andy.

    I was hoping that the Bose used the existing wiring :(

    Oh well, scrap that idea and I have just sold my Focal K2P's :(
