    Surely youve not only just found it Jason? To be fair it took me a while to find the one on my old A4, but that did mean i found the S3 one straight away.

    Heh, nice find. Don't think I would have ever noticed it there. Don't think I'll ever use it though. Whenever the sun is out, my shades are on.

    Yup, found mine though only due to it having a rear parking sensor readout on it.

    That's what I love about Audi as a brand... it's the little touches that make all the difference.

    lol, it's a VAG thing, Golf's and Passat's have it too.

    And for those who can't find it, and there's a gaping hole in your roof liner, chances are, you've had a windscrren replacement sometime in the past!
