    Hi,
    Yes they will - I have just fitted some TT mk 2 air vents to my 05 A3. They are a great improvement on the originals.

    They are the same fitment but IMHO the MK2 look far nicer.

    They fit the dash the same but the backs of the mk1 TT vents are not long enough to reach the A3's pipework so you have to bodge it.

    Go Mk2, they are direct fitment

    Hi Lee, just found out they are Mark1, and I've just paid for them... doh.
    What level of bodging is required?

    Has anyone fitted these polished vent rings from Awesome-GTi? They look really smart and only 30 quid for the set of 4.

    Paula, these are just like what I've bought... but I got genuine Audi TT Mk1 Vent Dials, seems to be a little confusion if they are a straight swap or not... guess i'll find out soon.

    I fitted Audi TTS Air Vents a few months back to my A3 Sport. I got my 4 vents dead cheap off ebay.. only 60! They were easy to fit, literally a straight swap! I used the following guide:

    Removing
    Turn ring 45 in clockwise direction.
    Use removal wedge or small flat screw driver to prise dash panel vent off dash panel.

    Pull vent out of dash panel by hand.

    Installing
    Installation is carried out in the reverse order, note the following:
    Turn ring 45 in clockwise direction.
    When inserting dash panel vent in dash panel, make sure guide engages in recess.
    Push dash panel vent into dash panel as far as it will go.

    OK, seem to be getting conflicting info regarding TT Mk1 Vents.
    I personally prefer the look of these to the Mk2, but the TTS ones above also look nice.
    So are the Mk1 a straight replacement or are they shorter then the A3 Vents and need modifing?

    TT Mk1 Vents are definitely 100% shorter!!! TTS Air Vents are a straight swap!
