Hi there!
A new new beetle owner here. I've been reading on the snow box removal, I've done that already when I had my bumper and fenders off trying to fix my cars crunched area from a fender bender :(
I Dont like the small area that the filter is in, so I was thinking, if I removed the stock air box, and relocated the battery in the truck, put the new cone filter where the battery is currently is. Does that sound reasonable?
I'm looking for something that looks different and might add something to it.
What would I really need to do to relocate the battery? Just running new wires and having a jump point like in a caddilac or something like that?

Then I can have a stereo in the truck with less wires to run ;)

I believe that is all that needs to be done. You will need to make sure the fuse box on top of the battery gets put somewhere it wont get damaged. I would recommend keeping that fuse box in the engine bay, so that you don't have to deal with running more than one wire. Make sure you have a really good grounding point and you should be set.
