Hey Guys
Sorry to hijack the thread but was it only the fairmonts that got the space for the sub in the parcel shelf?
Would an EL Futura have it?

EF GLI has the hole - so I would think so. Have a look under the parcel tray from inside the boot.

So that is a good sub, that would make good bass?

I want a sub but I don't wanna take out the benefit of having 60/40 split seats.
