    The diameter is bigger, so would look rather weird in the dash with a lip all round as such.

    If that's the case then it's not such a good idea...

    Are you referring to Daniel.Ireland? In his pics I see gauges in the two center vents and a standard 8P vent next to the steering wheel.

    Great! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I've yet to see a listing that ships to the states, or I'd give it a try.

    I was inside of a A1 today, and the air vents would give the 8P interior the complete up to date together with my 8V flat bottom steering wheel!
    so I was measuring the inner diameter to 175mm and that is almost the same as the 8P vents, even smaller! I bet that you can customize the outer rings for the A1 vents to fit in the 8P :sly:
    on A1 you close the vents in the middle and not on the outer ring so that can be solid, those A1 ventknobs looks identical to the Navi volume knob :rockwoot:
