    You wanting to put a full DIS?

    The big LCD display in the middle of clocks?

    1998s did come with this.
    You need a set of clocks with this that will fit your car, prefacelift with analogue clock, some extra plugs, cables and sensors I think.
    Pop over to the A4 B5 section, there is thread by JCB, he's asking to do the same thing on his A4.
    The A3 and A4 very much a like in this field.
    A4 B5 Double Din, RNS-d, TMC, Full Sports Leather Heated with Leather Door Cards and Lower Door trims all for sale.
