Certainly does make a very very worthwhile difference to the sound.

What is it? Do I need to do this to the Clubbie?? is is to do with the speakers being wired up the opposite way round?

Yes, it swaps front with rear.

Do you need to do it - that's down to your own personal choice.
Dow you want to do it  - yes, of course you do! Very Happy 

Save yourself a few quid by reading This Thread
Save yourself a few hours' brain deadening dullness by simply skipping to page 26 and checking the diagram, which I've also shown  below.

Naturally I had one wire which was a sod to get out, and one which was a sod to get back in! Sad 

All sorted with a Torx size 20 to push the buggers out with, and pliers to push them into their new homes.

so in summary all I'm doing is re-homing some wires that are in the 'wrong' place? how long did it take in the end Richard - and did/has it made a noticeable difference to the sound?

sorry for all the questions I'm a total dullard with this sort of stuff Smile

The lead's very expensive new but saves a lot of hassle. If Paul doesn't send payment it's yours if you want it Smile

I'm guessing it acts as a bridge to re-route the connections to where they should be? does it make a significant difference Mike?

But that's what forums are for Lee.

All together it probably took under an hour, spread over late morning/early afternoon.
I stopped for lunch at the point where I couldn't get that one last wire back in.
I wasted a lot of time with the one which refused, at first, to come out too.

Sound is much more purposeful, far better bass.

And here's a photo of the "OMG! WTF have I done?! moment

Great improvement. That pictures is why NMS made the lead for people that didn't feel confident or wanted it to be a quick 5 minute job and is easy to remove/reverse or put in another car Smile

I may well do that fella, has it moved the sound of your PDC sensors? or the bluetooth (not that I use the latter)

I don't have PDC on this one. On the MKI, PDC audio didn't use the stereo system.
Bluetooth does move to the rear, not tested it yet though.

I think my Clubman may have the hi-fi upgrade option, judging from what I can tell about the lead Mike has for sale it recommends not using that if this option is present - do you know if the same applies to the DIY swap?

my sound does seem pretty feeble, but that could be my dodgy hearing or the fact I play my music too loud (or both!)

It pushes it to the rear but it's fine you get use to it after a week Smile

Yeah I think it's N/A with the hifi upgrade.
Have a look through the 26page NAM link I posted earlier, bound to be mentioned in there somewhere.
