I have recently done the above mods to my Wifes 2007 A3 TDI 170 S-Line, having bought the parts from Stoke Audi.
The ashtray part was fine using the guide on the site but I think there must be a panel for the top side of the newly created cubby, there is some rough plastic with holes but still a possibility items could get lost down there. I am sure there was a post about a lighting panel which could be fitted there, I am not too bothered about it lighting but does anyone know what I need and if possible the part number?
I also bought the pop out drinks holder whih is a direct replacement for the coin tray. I had a guide which spoke of some parts needing modification to fit but mine was a direct fit and works perfectly. That is until you fit the trim panel round the switches at the other side and hazard light switch in the middle, then you find the opening for the drinks holder is about 1/2mm wider and it doesn't open with the panel in place. I tried swapping the drawer fronts but it still doesn't fit/work properly, also tried heating and re-moulding the original part, NOT recommended, so I recon I need the trim panel from an A3 model which has the drinks holder as standard. I have posted this up on the Stoke Audi section but Dave doesn't seem to be around at the moment and the unfinshed job is bugging me, so again can anyone advise what I need and if ossible the part number?
Thanks for your help.
