    What's your part number I'm sure I have a suitable dash available, and I'm in Wales and able to fit on saturday.

    Other than that I see no reason an s3 wouldn't work, i have programmed 2009+ S3 dash into a 2007 non s car.

    What year is your a3? If it's a pre facelift I'm pretty sure the 3 plugs at the back are different to the s3. If It's a facelift then it should swap. Would just need programming in which @udi A3 can help in that department
