    Don't think anyone does a double din fascia for 8L A3
    You'll need a PC9-404 adapter
    And also an antenna amp adapter

    There must be an adapter to fit a single din radio in a double slot.

    Not for the 8L A3, think you have to get an A4 version and modify it. Most companies producing such things are US based and the 8L was never released in the US IIRC

    Strange, iv just ordered CT24AU09 FACIA from halfords for £14.29
    Apparently the correct one for the car.
    Im wondering which a4 fascia you would buy and how it would be modified????

    Not really that strange as that's for the 8P not 8L (Halfords quality service as usual)

    Its very strange actually when your assured its correct.
    Anyway dont be shy with the a4 fascia info. i think think this may be the only option.

    Assured it's correct by Halfords?
    Thats like Kwik Fit assuring you they will not be beaten on price!
    I don't have info on the mods needed to fit an A4 version, just know some AS members have done it

    Same problem here. I've got a facelift 8L S3 and trying to go from Audi double DIN to an Alpine single DIN. Couldn't find the correct fascia after hours of searching online. I ended up buying the 8P one and filing it down to make it fit. It will never be quite right though so I'm keen to find a proper fascia.
    Now: 2001 S3 Nogaro Blue
    Then: 2000 S3 Black
