Made a start on Subwoofer upgrade, easy enough to remove trim & shelf just take your time.
Ordered a vibe powerbox micro sub amp, small enough to fit in the amp / satnav rack in boot side compartment & the Vibe slick 10" sub. Amp is 800 w max & sub 1050 w max so should be a vast improvement on factory.
Also going to dynamat the metal of the shelf

All finished, sounds awesome but still needs running in, plenty of fine tuning & can still adjust from sound option in mmi.
Being 10" new sub fitted the factory hole ok, just the A5s shelf isn't flat so made a quick mdf baffle board, all sealed & screwed down, can't even tell now trim & speaker covers back on

Very good thread.. Been looking at doing something similar, what about the wiring? Is it straight forward?

Couldn't be any easier with this amp, no need for a remote on wire! Phono input has just speaker wire other end, that I joined to sub speaker wire. Battery & earth straight to battery in boot & earth bolt, then sub cable just short run behind trim to sub.
The amp instantly turns on when detects an input.
Because input connected to factory sunwoofer cable can adjust from mmi screen.
Definitely recommend an mdf board as metal parcel shelf in coupe still flexes with a lot of bass

Had a new auxiliary belt, waterpump & crank pulley fitted, bearings gone in pump & seen many horror stories where the pulleys rubber have broke away lately, definitely a lot quieter now. While bumper off a little tlc, sprayed everything black again & redid the crash bar black with a discreet Quattro logo.

Nice work! What's the trick to getting the front bumper off?
