    Cigarette lighter...priceless

    Burn out the cabling to the cigerette lighter by using a cheap fridge unit.

    cigarette lighter unit Ł20
    installation over Ł300
    my face....f******g astonished



    Can anyone give me an idea of how to fit one. Apparently the centre console needs to come out! It's the sort which is recessed.

    Cheers

    Whoops! Not sure about replacing the fag lighter cabling but this is a guide from navplus telling you how to take the centre console out with a view to fitting an RNS-e but it'll do for your purposes. Goodluck!

    A4 1.8T Sport (163ps) Demin Blue, is that a new colour?

    Can you not just thread a new cable under the center console to save taking it out. even if it means vandalising the cig lighter to get it out?

    Denim blue is an old colour. I think it is similar to Mauritius blue, except slightly lighter and metallic rather than pearl effect. I think it was fazed out after the B6's.

    Not sure about the cigarette lighter. Did a bit of poking around yesterday. Popped the gear stick housing and plate under the handbrake. It's all very tight in there.
