    yeah, you pull them out & then push these straight in, they are held in place by a crappy foamy surround towards the back of the vents & the friction of tight fit holds them fast, so easy peasy job, just lever from behind the dial front fascia carefully with a screwdriver & very slowly, do one side, then other & slowly from side to side wiggle them out, patients is a virtue on this job so dont rush & dont put to much pressure on them as you'll end up scratching something expensive.

    I think I'll be fine with my current ones - the air won't be any cooler coming out of those ones!

    To be honest, I've spent a little bit too much on bits and pieces over the last few weeks. I think I need to draw a line somewhere before I end up buying a new car piece by piece!

    Thanks! I'm rather pleased with them.

    Not sure how much the vents are from the dealer. The part number is 8P0 820 901 C and you'll need 4 of them.

    If I was to get one of those "overnight test drive" thingys in a new facelift A3 I wonder if the dealer would notice if I was to swap out all the newer bits for my old ones!

    They look a bit too chromed to be honest.



    Although, at 30 for a set of 4 they are substantially cheaper than the OEM ones.

    I agree, the OEM ones aren't as in your face and better looking IMO.

    yes, chrome ones bit too shiny. Was about to say switch was right but i'm thinking about my old A3 which is that way round. A tin of airfix paint will do fine for the vents

    Now I know they are just painted I might look into this myself. Always like the S3 vents but not worth the coin-age IMO.

    TBH need to spray cause painting would show up easily against the pattern on the dials, lol seriously though spraying the rings seperately by removing would probably accomplish the same thing.

    Audi are charging more money for cars & using much less worthy parts to add that nice touch of class, so called alum mirrors arent solid anymore actually plastic coated with a thin layer of alum & the vents are plastic, shocked when I got mine to say the least, next the fecking wheels will be made out of glass.
