    Facelift dash single to double DIN climate control question

    I bought a new Audi Symphony for the bargain price of Ł30 which I hope to retrofit. Didn't realise though that the A/C control for the double DIN centre consoles is hella expensive (saw a used one go for Ł110 with shed loads of bids... must be rare?).

    Looks like the only difference really though is the fascia (and potentially the mounting points). Anybody know if the fascia can be bought separately and just swapped over?

    facia for the HVAC?

    If so, it's not available seperatly. Also the cage, the console itself, the HVAC , the ashtray,gearstick surround and the facia are all different sadly.

    The HVAC can be filed down and moved to a lower mounting point if you remove the ashtray

    Yeah, I have a list of parts I need and I'm hoping I can grab the trim bits, radio cage and ashtray from a breaker for cheap.

    Filing it down is tempting... have you seen this done? Got a link?
