    Here's some info I posted in the S3SB Rear Lights thread on the part numbers for the facelift switches:

    As far as I know all you need to do is replace the tray that holds the hazard switch and the buttons.

    The part number for the cage looks to have changed, but it may just be a superseded part.

    The part numbers have all changed and are as follows:

    8P0 863 321 F 6PS - Trim for console
    8P0 941 567 A 5PR - Switch Bracket Left
    8P0 941 567 B 5PR - Switch Bracket Right
    8P0 941 509 C - Emergency Light Switch

    The following buttons are available. I'll list them L-R. L1, L2, L3 are to the left of the hazard button and R1, R2, R3 are to the right.

    L1
    8P0 927 121 B 5PR - TPMS
    8P0 941 515 D 5PR - Blind Cover

    L2
    8P0 927 134 D 5PR - Switch for ESP
    8P0 927 133 D 5PR - Switch for Traction Control
    Don't know what the difference is - perhaps one says ESP and the other TC.

    L3
    8P0 919 234 B 5PR - Warning Lamp for Airbag
    8P0 941 518 5PR - Blind Cover

    R1
    8P0 927 127 5PR - Switch for Self-Levelling System
    8P0 941 516 D 5PR - Blind Cover

    R2
    8P0 919 281 5PR - Switch for Parking Aid
    8P0 941 516 E 5PR - Blind Cover

    R3
    8P0 927 123 5PR - Switch for Vehicles with Park Assist System
    8P0 941 516 F 5PR - Blind Cover

    The only other thing to have changed is that there no longer appears to be a coin drawer option. You have to have the two sets of three switches.
    NigelHobden was telling me last night that he has been able to order the new switches and a coin drawer for the facelift. You may want to wait until he gets his sorted before ordering anything as you might aswell get the latest parts since they'll be the same price(-ish) anyway.

    If you would prefer to go with the original pre-facelift gear let me know and I'll dig out the part numbers.

    when you say new switches, do you mean the ones for the double din cage or the facelift switches of the new A3

    there are two versions now of the smaller switches. The older ones are smaller versions of the single din switches, the new facelift versions are more rounded.

    This is the face lift type :




    These are the older style :

    2008 -> 2003 Akoya Silver A3 8P1 2.0 FSi Sport

    The top picture is the new style of switches that will be coming out on the facelift car, I guess it must be available in Germany already? (image was taken from ebay where the guy was selling the whole double din cage/switches and aircon unit)

    The lower picture is of the switches of the current model. When I said small switches what I meant is that they are smaller than single din switches which won't let the cover fit over them except the hazard but as you say, its at the wrong angle.

    Kevin, if you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost you to do the single din to RNS-E double from start to finish?

    Kevin, also check out http://www.navplus.us. It's a website dedicated to all things RNS-E, with dozens of links to online fitting guides, part numbers and loads of other information. I couldn't have completed my retrofit without their help - in fact, while my RNS-E was still hanging out of the dashboard in the car, I was rushing in to the house to check their site every now and then!
