    RS3 instrument cluster?

    From a German forum, a guy is selling a RS3 instrument cluster. Not sure if this is a prototype unit or a fake one. Opinions?

    5 photos here:

    Latest version of ETKA has the part number only in search mode. No image and no price.

    autoexpress the going with this pic last week saying it was genuine! They also had a pic of the RS3 steering wheel

    Seems strange if they are genuine but it stands to reason that the parts would be available before the car! Maybe the suppliers are dodgy, who makes the clusters? Someone like Siemens I bet

    Well lets hope it is genuine, and Audi in their wisdom, will let the cat out of the bag, or come clean in YES or NEVER, and not carry on making their Dealers look stupid in denial all the time
