    Ok as per title, has anyone got one of these in there car from factory, as me & my audi chum cant track down the part number & I've seen it on cars worked on, so it must be available on the 8P.

    Thanks in advance.

    me thinks that they didn't do one from the factory. my rationale is that all seats with alcantara also have leather (on the bolsters and head rest) so the arm rest would have been leather to match

    i've done a cursory autotrader search and i can't seem to find one. audi exclusive maybe? do the exclusive parts have part numbers as well? i thought by definition they were bespoke.

    my only suggestion would be to get in contact with someone who has all the 8P brochures (h5djr is a good bet) and have a flick thru. that way you know for definite
