Re: speaker issue

You will need adapters to fit any other speakers,you can get plastic ones on ebay,or I sell mdf ones for £10 delivered.

Re: Removing original tape deck and speaker covers

You need to take the door cards off to change the front speakers.You'll also need adapters as the oe speakers have a plastic moulding around them and are riveted to the door.You can get plastic ones on ebay,or I sell mdf ones which are better.

Re: 4awg or 8awg?

as above,go for 4 gauge,you'll only wish you had if you get 8 gauge,and a 4 gauge kit doesn't cost much more than the 8 gauge.

Re: Wheel Colour Help Needed

thanks for the replies.

Anthracite is top of my list,although I'm thinking maybe a shade or two lighter.

Also,the brakes are already painted blue,but I might change them to red.

Wheel Colour Help Needed

Having had a blow out last weekend,and another of my RS6's has a small scuff mark,I want to paint my wheels.At the moment I can't decide what colour to do them,am thinking of either satin black,white or metallic grey.Heres a pic of my car: http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q318/hull_lad/gti%20fest/...
