    I don't know about differences between the 2 but when swapping any clocks even if it's like for like it's not quite as simple as you may think.. you need to get the new clocks coded to match you ECU and Immobliser... i beleive you can do it yourself if you have VAGCOM but you need a keycode that belongs to the car, if your lucky it will be attached to your spare keys if not you have to approach Audi

    No they will be different, youll have to get the code of your s3 clocks and then the a3 clocks and phone audi up and get them to chack the coding to see if there compatible.
    I went down this line a while ago and was quite cheap, clocks were about £50ish of ebay and audi only wanted about £100 to reprogamme my key fobs and the clocks.
    Quite good really the only downfall is that youll have the mileage of the new clocks showing.
