    Let me know if you need anything else. I have tonnes of pictures of the install.

    I had the pro Nav NBT system with no amp and nothing in the boot apart from the Bluetooth module and diversity unit. As I did not want to dismantle the dash, I left well alone and lifted the carpet near the under-seat subs and cut the speaker wires there. The front door speakers are fed from the sub, so you can splice into them, and I also managed to find the rear door speakers under the carpet in the same area, which I also cut. So basically where I cut the speaker wires, I then extended them to the amp in the boot and connected to the high level inputs of the amp, I did this for the four channels. The amp then converts to six channels (low Hz for the subs) and I ran 4 new cables back to the under-floor sub area and connected into the wires going to each door, and I ran 2 new cables from the amp low frequency outputs direct to the subs. I may be able to explain better with the following picture taken at the time from under the drivers seat. The larger pair of blue/red cables are from the head unit front driver side channel, this originally fed the sub which had an output going to the front doors for the original full range basic speaker - the smaller pair of blue/red cables are to the door. So I simply cut the connector off, extended the larger pair of blue/red to the boot for the new amp input and then a new cable back to join the smaller pair of red/blue cables to feed the front door speaker. The sub was then fed direct from the amp to the sub with the larger black/blue cable you see in the picture. The finished result is then felt taped to stop rattles and the sub fitted. I had to crimp two spade connectors onto the sub feed as you can see, you can also see the original cables that I extended under the carpet. This is all you need to do on each side, then simply fit the door speakers. This is the amp mounted in the boot. Let me know if you need any more info, I can do a diagram if required. Ian

    This is mine. What's not to like? (as he prepares for a long list)

    Easy, get an F07, 7 series chassis/dash with a hatch:

    When I made a £15k claim my insurance went from £500 to £700. Edit: I had protected NCB as well

    That’s because it has more torque than a weedy petrol engine.

    Diesel is still the fuel of choice when you look at actual emissions on the new test regime, compare 540i to 530d in the G30 Feb 2017 drip down: http://carfueldata.dft.gov.uk/search-new-or-used-cars.aspx We are being talked out of diesel by the press, but a good diesel will produce less particulates than the equivalent petrol engine, purely because diesel has been developed more than petrol in the last few years. It would be a shame to lose all that development and testing just because I’ll informed ministers and the tabloids don’t like diesel. Read Autocar and they tell you that there is still nothing like a big diesel in a Range Rover or an X5 where hybrids simply do not work. Do your homework before deciding petrol is best as I don’t think diesel is dead yet.

    I did mine last year and used the Gladen custom fit stuff with a 6 channel Mosconi amp. I also used 10 sheets of dynamat in the doors and boot to suppress the road noise. New mids and added tweeters to the door mirror sails: New mids and added tweeters to the rear: Had to cut the door panel for the tweeter (scary) Mosconi amp: 8" subs under the seats: And Dynamat to the doors and boot:

    That is the exact spec I would go for, I've been looking at the last edition 67/18 reg cars, they all have decent spec and can be had for £38K as an AUC. I would probably find the ride good as well seeing as I'm running 21's at present. Just the small matter of a £14K deficit to find first.

    Have you done the full load down write up of the new motor?

    I’ll add EGR coolers to that list. At least they don’t have runflats to moan about. Im a member of the Audi A2 forum and it’s a great place to be.

    You will need spacers with staggered 351’s on a touring.
