    You need a new cage behind the facia for double DIN, then also you will have to trim your heating controls down to fit the smaller gap. I have done it once, not too difficult.

    Why dont you just get a flip out screen the Kenwood are excellent very firm no movement. It will save buchering your aircon unit controlls

    pretty sure the 8L is thh same as most Audi's where you can buy a 2 din conversion cage from Audi, although not sure how you remount the AC unit in the A3's, the 2001+ A4's are pretty easy (just trim the edges as marked on the back of the unit).
