    Vagparts.com do one in the A3 section of their online shop but it's not very cheap at 150+VAT and P&P. Otherwise your best bet is to try scrapyards and breakers.

    I woudl avoid scrap yeards unless you view it in person, make sure you have all the bits also

    A side note grumble, I thought I was being nice and showing some solidarity on this forum by giving my old one away...Then got ripped off..Very disappointed still.

    Barters they are expensive, as I have a reciept for a genuine one that was fitted to my car, as the previous one was faulty....it was for about 180!!!!

    No Money at all....!

    All I wanted was the 9 for mailing it....! Really disappointed, as I was just trying to help someone out. You woudl easily get 40 for that on e-bay. The bracket, albeit missing one bolt, is 30 from Audi alone!!!

    i bought a black leather arm rest for a golf gti for 40 quid off ebay. it's in mint condition and really doesn't look out of place. I'm very chuffed with it! the s3/a3 ones (in great condition with all bits) go for a lot more and the only difference is that they are squared off as opposed to more rounded.

    keep an eye for a cheaper alternative!

    Check out S3 Armrest fitting problems, what a pain... for fitting instructions and part numbers

    8L0 864 283B Bracket
    1J0 711 354 Adapter

    I've got two armrests at home, trouble is one is the original that is stuck in the upright position with a snapped bracket; the other is brand new with all fixings but with a black cloth lid....I have a white leather interior.

    Audi do a repair kit for the one that is stuck-upright.
    This happend to mine, its a manufacturing ****-up, the plastic clips arnt stong enough so audi did a repair kit for them, about 10 iirc.
    Easy to do, takes minutes.
    You have to feel for the screws though as theyre behind the felt insert, you have to scratch a bit of the felt off to reveal the screws.

    Hello if you want too sort your armrest thats stuck upright theres a very good guide on here somewhere, i used it and it was spot-on u can just superglue in some small bolts works a treat wouldnt give audi a tenner!! mines been repaired for a while and been roughly treated by misses (typical) and still perfect!

    dnt put too much in audi's pocket!
