    Yes, but i don't know if the steering wheel pillar is the same than my face lifted A3? as i don't want to modify the A pillar since i can't find the OEM fabric to cover it all again

    That's what i had planed before, but is almost impossible find here one a3/s3 in the breakers, actually is really hard to find audi's don't ask me why hehe at least i haven't found any beaker that has european spares, the most commercialized cars here are jdm but i've found these, i think they are a little bit pricey but they do the work and you don't have to modify anything,

    the golf pillars are definately different if my memory serves me correctly! as i also looked into getting a 42draft pod, but realised it just wasnt going to fit......

    be a man, make your own like i did!

    I cannot make my mind up about your brilliant and excellent effort!
    Whether its OEM or a bit like a big toe poking out of an old sock, i am in two minds still! lol! lol

    I am wondering about getting a GB interest on a housing and boost guage with grey dial to match the originals incl LEDs and S3 logo!
    I think a generic gauge with some dials made up at a local place i know (that develops dashboards for cars!) may be the way to go!

    why not buy a generic pod off ebay for an A3 and cover it in matching material. think thats what i will do.

    is that what you did prawn

    anyone know where you can buy the material from?

    i know what you mean about a big toe, do they not do smaller LCD type gauges?

    I'm thinking seriously about modifying the oem pillar but can't find one in the breakers, neither the simylar material to start modifying the original one :S i'm thinking in the automete sprt comp II series boost and air/fuel gauges
