A5 Bang & Olufsen upgrade

Hi peeps,

i have a the standard "concert" system (i think that's what it's called) in the car. I've seen a full Bang & Olufsen speaker & amp system for sale & wondered if i bought this, where in the south of England (may drive further if needs be) i can get this fitted?

Kindest regards

I did it once, had to have virtually the whole interior of the car out, replace all the speakers, add two new ones on the rear shelf, new ones in the doors, new wiring into the doors, major rewiring for the amp as all the pins are different, new wiring for new microphones in the roof. Some recoding. Was very happy with the result but decided afterwards that getting a different car would be the better way to go! Others will have a different view of course. So, yes, it can be done.

I did it on the cab along with 3G mmi install etc. As above but even worse having to feed cables up to deck lid. Well worth the effort though

I was very happy with it afterwards, but just decided I would make sure the next car wouldn't need any jobs that big! Having said that my new one has now had rear camera, drive select and high beam assist. Not much else I could do, except drive it and enjoy it :-)

I added the B&O door tweeters into the existing Audi basic setup, makes a good difference for a relatively cheap job! May be worthwhile for you if you want a better sound!
