    A3 Double din help

    Hi,

    I have a 2002 A3 1.9tdi, and have the bose sympthy system from factory. the head unit is double din, and i want to change this to a single din unit for my aftermarket head unit. where can i find the fascia that changes the double din to the single din with the compartment underneath?


    Thanks

    Sadly there is no such beast for the 8L A3/S3, I know... I was looking to do the same thing.

    Your choices are, get an A4 double din facia and trim it or source all the original bits to change from double din to single din.

    I did the latter and sourced a single din cage, aircon unit and lower compartment.

    Scrap yard or someone who wants to swap a single din for your double din setup for the cheap option.

    The aircon unit alone is about 400 from a stealer.

    This is the facia I first played with before going for a single di swap:

    If you go single din, you will need one of these:

    I have one on order as these are rubber/soft touch finish like Audi head units. The one I have in at the moment is a bit shiny
