Are my old Parrot wiring looms going to be useful for a later install on my A6 4F (Bose)

Good evening all, I have just finishing binning off the (useless) Parrot MKI9200 that came fitted to the car when I bought it in favour of the Dension Gateway 500s BT.

I am now left with a collection of expensive looking aftermarket looms that went with the parrot.

My question is: before I chuck them all on eBay along with the parrot, are any of them going to be useful later one when I look to upgrade the audio in the car from the Bose?
Eventually I would like to replace all the main speakers with Focal, and drive them all from JL audio amps, but in the short term I will be adding a large JL audio sub and amp to add a lot more low end.
I'm well aware of the fact that the Bose system is not the easiest to break into, so I'm working if these looms will help at all.
Cheers all!

I don't think any need to keep any of them. They are all specific Bose / parrot / Audi mute interface looms and then the extension cable to run down the car so can fit the brain etc in the front.

Unless you think worth keeping for pin / speaker wire locations then sell them.

Thanks for the reply! I'll pop the lot up on ebay as a complete install kit later, thinking to ask about £200 for the lot, sound about right?
Are there any analogue line level signals available on the back of the the Bose amp in the boot? Thinking about how I'm going to do my future installs.
Cheers

Surely not? I've seen just the Parrot MKi9200 alone go for £100, I'm selling the whole lot, maybe £150 then .

There was an autoleads transformer box on ebay for £30 but it didn't sell,

It's still all got to be worth £100-£120 ish, better than sitting in a drawer or locked in the garage lol

I paid £60 for mine off the bay (mki9200) but they go for more.
Would put it on for £90 or best offer and see what offers you get.

Good stuff, thanks chaps! Presumably this kit with the looms will fit Audis with Bose, I'm thinking A6 and A8 from mid 2000s onwards, any others?
