    Hi guys im looking for the centre trim panel that goes round the switches for a double din unit on an audi a3. I have ordered one from audi and have been waiting 3 months for it! I cant wait any longer. Does anybody have a spare one?

    Cheers

    You are joking I presume ? A spare one ? Rocking horses spring to mind !

    You could make an offer on this if you want but bear in mind they're only 45 new from Audi !!

    3 months?? What year is your car too, as there are 2 different styles, one is like Mike's link & the other is the older square button style.

    Sorry mate - thought you were after the double din conversion cage, not just the bit around the switches. My mistake !!

    Ah right, no i fitted the double din cage months ago when i did my conversion, i am just looking for the actual trim switch panel that goes in the centre asround the hazard light. Alo it is the squarer one im after, the pre 2008 one. i think its 2005 - 2007.

    Cheers

    Hi Chrisy,
    I'm in the same boat as you. I did the same conversion and have been waiting on this part since decemeber. It finally came through about 3 weeks ago but they sent the wrong part number Doh, so the correct part is now on back order all over again.
    Seems the part these days is like rocking horse crap.
    Just a wating game im afraid lol

    as far as i'm aware you can reuse the trim which you had when your car was single DIN. the only button that isn't quite right (but still fits) is the hazard switch but everything else was reusable?

    Hi sub39H,
    Tried this but unfortunately the top is curved off on the top edgeof the trim for the single din and needs to be 'pointed' for the double din set up. Couldn't re-use the old trim after numerous attempts and mods..

    no i genuinely thought that you could reuse the old trim. i wasn't aware that they were hard to get ahold of or that they were actually sought after.

    I'd had planned to change to the newer style of switches but looks a lot more complicated to work out what options to get as the MY11 is all one switch. At least I know there would be resale demand on at least one off my old parts LOL

    I also didn't know there was such a problem getting hold of them mate but they certainly are different.

    If you get a chance to compare single din and double din installations just have a look at the switch surrounds.

    Single din has curved top edges to fit the dash console and double din have straight top edges to match the new position in between head unit and climate control.

    Climate control fascia is also different due to the different angle between the grab handles when it's lowered!

    Is your car ok now ?
