Depends which sound system is fitted to the car as standard.
In my B7 the Rear speakers are controlled via the subwoofer unit located in the right hand side of the boot space. So the signals sent from an aftermarket head unit are interrupted and are much lower output - you can get around this...
I’ve had no issues with loosing coolant on a BUL - have you had any work done to the coolant system, could’ve been an air pocket that has finally cleared in the heating matrix?

Sounds like the battery has given up the ghost. Starter motors requires a huge amount of current from the battery to start. A complete drain and regular over discharge cycles can damage a battery no matter of the age.

New on left, old on right.
I’ve heard about some cold start issues with a lumpy idle, I’m sure you could have it mapped out. Is there anything else you’ve heard of?
I just think the flaps into the inlet are such a impedance for airflow at higher inlet flow, the turbulence created by these runner flaps must be a...
It’s a kit I bought a long time ago
But I just haven’t had the time to fit it, work has been mental the last 8 months... lockdown has sent people crazy. I must get round to doing the cam follower too, it’s coming up due for a change and that’s the...
