You need to get your hands on a Vagcom tool and recode the OEM head unit. The OEM head unit has some processing going on that you'll want to turn off, and you'll need the scan tool to do that.

Are the new Kicker speakers coax or component? If coax, are you still running the OEM tweeters?

Describe the issues that you're having in the best detail you can. Even if the new amp and speakers are working well, you won't get nearly enough bass to be satisfied unless you add a sub, especially since the OEM head unit is filtering out some bass to protect the OEM speakers.

Also, if you haven't already, make sure you check to see if the car has the updated timing chain tensioner. If you have the old tensioner the engine will fail, you need it updated yesterday.
