Bose recall, and my 200q20v status

Does anyone have a set of the defective Bose rear speakers/amps/etc so
I can put them in my 200q20v and have the recall done?  My car has
some sort of crappy aftermarket rear replacement speakers, and I
received the recall notice postcard in the mail from Audi.  I would
prefer to have a working stock setup, if it would be nearly free.

Just in case someone's replaced their factory parts and not thrown
them away, if I could have them for shipping cost or something, I'd be

My 200q20v has been down for a few months now, parked due to a mild
coolant consumption issue somewhere and the need to tend to a few
other issues, such as worn valve stem seals.  I have started the
process to prepare another 3B head with an RS2 EM and turbo, and
38lb/hr Racetronix/Delphi injectors, to eventually swap onto the short
block.  I may put in a 7A exhaust cam, or maybe intake too, as that's
done by some of the 20vt hot rodders.  I haven't decided yet and the
effort has been stalled for a bit.

I want to clean up the casting flash and other stuff in the ports and
such, so I bought a valve spring compressor and porting kit.  I was
about to finally buy a nice air compressor and air tools to continue
that process, but I went back to school and have been focused on that
more than the elective car projects lately.
