    S3 Pillar Mount Gauge Pod???

    Does any one know if the pillar in the seat leon 1.8t is the same as the S3?
    Really want a pillar pod but dont want the hassle of trying to make one fit.
    hopefully this would fit?

    i got the leon gauge pod in my A3 (i'm guessing the A3and S3 has the same A pillar cover)

    its a straight fit apart from you need to trim a little bit off the back to makeit fit 100% on the pillar. but easy fit

    Information of pillar pod fitting is in the stickies
    ★★★★★★★-a3-s3-faq-stickies-★★★★★★★

    Just search for 52mm pillar pod on eBay... I can't find the one I used but there isn't anything specifically for the A3/S3 so you will have to put a bit of work in and tweak one to fit.. generally look for a 52mm pod thats has a round/curved fitting profile and you will be close...

    LCR and Mk4 Golf should be a good start...
