    I won an armrest!!.. finally!

    Hi ASN.
    Another help required post by me.

    I finally won an armrest for my s3.
    Will one from a '98 A3 fit ok into my facelift '01 S3?.....(i really hope the answers yes)
    If so,
    The one i won has a grey alcantara lid... Unfortunatly my interiors the half leather/ ivory alcantara, so its going to look balls.
    Are the lids replacable?. or re-trimable?

    Or am i stuck waiting to buy a leather or cream lid from ebay?.

    Many thanks

    Mrcsw

    heres the item:
    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    Not sure yet, ive been watching it for a while... And stuck in a last minute bid.
    The pics make it look like very good condition.

    Ive seen wrap around covers for the lid on Ebay.
    Ages ago there was a cream alcantara lid, which would suit my interior perfectly.
    But i'd be tempted to go for a leather lid as it'll get less mucky.

    Can anyone confirm it'll fit my s3 being a facelift model?
    Cheers

    Nice one, I was keeping an eye on this as the alcantara lid tickled my fancy. I have a black leather lid we could possibly do a deal on or if you want to sell the alcantara lid I'll have it off you if it matches my steering wheel.

    I won my black leather arm rest off eBay for £30 brand new condition with cup holders, but got rid of the cup holders as i didn't like them. I still haven't fitted it yet I must get around to doing it, just thought I'd tell you all.

    Callum, Im sure a car retrimmer could match the leather and retrim it for not a lot of dosh, failing which have you tried Audi for a new lid in cream?
