Hi there! Just wanted to say thanks so much for encouraging people to pull their cars apart. I've been absolutely at my wits end with how bad the audio was (I'm a professional musician, came from e-Golf with Dynaudio upgraded sound).Haha... totally agree. I mean, the 3rd party audio installer I'm going to use is closed until May, so I'm not delaying taking action for any reason other than that.
But, I mean, if the subject comes up on an Internet forum my comment is always going to be something along the lines of "dear VW, if you're not going to include factory rear speakers on all trims please provide a retrofit option for customers who want to add them."
That will remain my opinion, but I'm not sitting around waiting for them to do it. I'm sitting around waiting for my local 3rd party audio specialist to open up.
Will be showing this info to my local car audio guy in a few days and asking for a quote to fit some new front and rear speakers. Looking at JL Audio C3's on all doors for now.
Will report back when I've spoken with him, and look at feasibility for using the 2-ch amp. He quoted me approx £800 inc labour for the JL C3 setup.
