    Yes,
    One of my primary reasons for the install was listening to audio. I ran Power, Ground and amplifier remote turn on lead to the trunk. Ran speaker and rca cables from the amp in the trunk back up to the dash. I wired the speaker wires into a harness that plugged into the factory wiring, replacing the radio. I hooked the remote turn on lead to a switch and into the harness as well. I also connected rca adapters to the cables to create one connection into my ipod. I just turn on the amp and fire up the ipod for now. I am also testing audio from a tablet PC.

    i know youve already worked out the power. but can you not get access to the main inputs to the fuse box like you can with the mk4 versions ( 4 connections, 2 live, 1 ignition, 1 earth that are bolted to the underside of the fusebox )?

    Yes, I can get to that area, but I had no need. I installed an aftermarket amplifier and thus had to run main power from the battery. It is a high current amp and requires it.
    Here is a pic:

    Well, since it is a 12v adapter. I would use 12v supply from the battery instead.

    You could also hack into your powersupply for the PC, I myself have an OPUS and did so Works like a charm.
    Planning: It's not my thing...
    Testing: Not really my thing either...
    Install: Guess around 60% Software takes soooo long....
