    New to audi

    Hi all,

    Just new to this audi thing lol, looked at alot of audi forums but this one seems to be the best of the bunch. I've switched over from a honda civic sport to a A3 tdi sport (140).

    One question... is the cupholder on the dash easy to fit? i Just have the coin holder one and it is no use. Can the dealers fit this?? Also can they fit the armrest as well?

    Many thanks

    Trevor

    Hello and welcome,

    This has recently been covered here: A3 Sportback Cup Holder problem

    It is do-able, and I imagine the Stealers would want a small fortune to retro fit for you.

    See what you think...
    A3 2.0TDi Sport, Mauritius Blue, Xenons, Black Leather/Alcantara, BOSE, Heated Seats, Parking Sensors, Light/Rain Sensor Pack, Interior Light Pack, Armrests.

    Mine came with the cup holder but I noticed the S3 I test drove had the coin holder. Why is there a difference? I must admit though I'd prefer a coin holder. I never use the cup holder cos I don't want to spill coffee on my stereo. And I could put sweeties in it

    do you have leather?

    if so the armrest from audi will cost around £200 - a cloth one costs £120

    they can fit it but at a price but im sure you can do a deal with them eg buy and fit for £200 or something

    or set yourself a project and do it yourself - not a hard job

    locate an A3 at a scrappies if you want and im sure you will easily get one with a cup holder and an armrest

    or just take it to a local 'good' independant dealer/mechanic and ask them to price it up.
