    Looks great - and begs the question of why they didn't just give us this in the first place! Seriously, one useful and one useless cup holder, both in a useless location... you'd think some bright spark would go "This isn't quite right, let's just use the US style"

    Ok so i have just looked this up on ETKA and the part numbers listed for the part shows this:




    The confusing part is that it lists the same part twice with different PR codes... one has no mention of any thing extra where the bottom one lists the UF PR's which are shown as :

    UF0 - Without Electric interface
    UF1 - Electric interface for external use
    UF2 - Electric interface for external use

    Now it has all 3 on the same part number so how are you meant to order it without the hole for AUX?

    The other part number listed there as 8P0 863 387 F has a PR of UF7 which it lists as
    UF7 - Electric interface for external use

    So how do we know which is which??

    Just don't get carried away with the cutting, that is all. I did it in stages so cut small bits at a time. In the end when it was very close, I ended up cutting inside the car.

    Handy enough job but just time consuming.

    Ok so I have just secured a really good price discount for the complete kit from my TPS dealer but I would have to place an order for £10 units.

    As far as i have got the info from Boydie (Boydie please confirm if i am wrong here) i have asked for the following parts:

    000979227EA (x2) - Repair wire

    000979023E (x1) - Repair wire

    1J0919321 (x1) - 12v Socket

    8P18632416PS (x1) - USA Centre Console

    8P0863387G6PS (x1) - 12V supply, lighter and slot for Aux

    8J0035475 (x1) - Aux

    1J0972977G (x1) - Plug for Aux

    8P1 898 173 6PS (x1) - Covers

    Total Kit Price @ £145

    I can get these parts ordered as soon as I get 10 people down for the parts and once i have them i will personally ship them out to the respective addresses, I will have to confirm the postage prices with you guys later as i am not entirely sure how much it will come to as it would be a large parcel.
    If anyone wants to suggest anyone that can do cheap-ish deliveries that would be great.

    Please let me know if you guys are interested in this?

    Ash, check out www.parcel2go.com for deliveries. If I had any confidence fitting one of these I'd be quite tempted...

    Hi,

    could you explain (or better take a picture) how do you use wires ? Because I'm confused. I tried to do a clean wire to use a Cigar Lighter and a 12v plug.

    000979227EA (x2) - Repair wire

    000979023E (x1) - Repair wire

    Are both female plug.

    Thx

    Pab

    OK thanks.

    In page 3 you had talking about 000979220E WIRE SET x 2 and 000979130E WIRE SET ==> those ones are male plugs.

    I do not understand how did you plug all this stuff :
    0009792273EA WIRES x 2
    000979220E WIRE SET x 2
    000979220E WIRE SET x 2
    000979023E WIRE SET
    000979130E WIRE SET

    If you have AMI you could always just use a USB extension cable to the AMI connector. Don't think Audi do a USB plug the way you can get on a VW Passat.

    This is what VW use:

    I just completed this mod today... it was interesting, thanks to Boydie with his findings with the size and cutting needed i saved loads of time.
    I did however find a way to get the passenger side sit flush as per OEM, only thing is that there is a screw visible but it honestly doesn't look that bad.

    I didn't get any pics of the passenger side fixed but here are some pics of the install...

    Firstly i stripped the interior down, although it can be done without taking out the seats i was doing some other mods at the same time so taking the seats out made it easier for me.






    Then went about measuring and cutting the new console to match the old one.














    As you can see it took some doing, the passenger side being higher than the UK console and the bulge that fouled the pipes needs a fair bit of cutting. if only there was a way to make that bulge push out the other way the passenger side wouldn't be a problem.

    The other thing that made it harder is that the screw points in the side of the console are not in the same place as our console... the UK one has 3 screws (one on drivers side and 2 on the passenger side) where the US one has 4. The passenger side screw on the bulge is much higher than the UK one, it also has a some extra plastic on the back which fouls the water pipe behind it making it stick out into the footwell further (you can see it on the last pic above). I resorted to cutting that off as well and making a new hole for the front screw to help the console sit flush. Il get some pics of how it looks tomorrow.

    After i managed to get the console on the car and bolted down, fixed the armrest in place and got it all back together this is how it looked:




    I finished off the other mods i was doing (will post a separate thread on it) and got the seats bolted back into place. I didn't get any pics on the wiring of the extra 12V socket although its really straight forward. I opted for the non AUX version since i don't have an Audi stereo, the AUX wouldn't plug into my Pioneer unit so i will be working on a custom fitting that will work with the pioneer unit.










    By the time i was done it got pretty late and almost time to break my fast... il get some more pics of the completed install tomorrow in proper daylight. hope you all like it... deffo recommend it!!

    Hey c'mon! it was 30 degrees yesterday! leave the cheap flip flops alone!


    anyway here are the pics of the passenger side and some better pics of the console.

    So this is how it looks without the screw in place... as you can see it sticks out a fair bit




    And here i have put in a black screw making it flush, When your sitting in the passenger seat you can barely see it.




    Here are some better pics of the console:

    These are the parts you need for the US Centre Console:

    000 979 227 EA (x1) - Repair wire for 12v socket
    000 979 023 E (x1) - Repair wire 12v socket
    1J0 919 321 (x1) - 12v Socket
    8P0 863 387 F 6PS (x1) - 12V supply and cig lighter (without AUX)
    8P1 863 241 6PS (x1) - USA Centre Console
    8P1 898 173 6PS (x1) - Bolt covers for US console

    If you want the AUX version you will need to replace 8P0 863 387 F 6PS (x1) - 12V supply and cig lighter (without AUX) with 8P0 863 387 G 6PS (x1) - 12V supply and cig lighter and AUX

    And get the following:
    8J0 035 475 (x1) - AUX
    8K0 973 754 - 4 pin plug for AUX
    000 979 009 EA (x2) - repair wires for AUX plug
