    My understanding is that these VAG parts aren't recognised on the Audi dealers system....but they are there and are vag parts. The codes on the Audiction posting are correct...cause that's what I used to order mine.

    IIRC, the covers I bought were the battery cover and the left-side scuttle cover. You want the right-side cover that goes over the pollen filter, yes? If so, my part numbers won't be any use.

    But let me know if you do want them and I'll find them.

    The second part number listed is exactly that. If you click on the Ebay link in post 11, you'll see a picture of the part. The part number corresponds (so you can be pretty sure it's the same part), only it's half the price from an Audi dealer

    You lot got me leafing through my log book & receiptstoo: Jaysus, I paid 96 quid including vat last year but that was for the large scuttle plate, battery cover and the separate cover ( kerbside ) that goes over the anti lock brake system stuff ( front to back )!
    Partnumbers were: 8E1819447 01C, 8E1819422a 01C and8E0103927F

    Think I paid about £70-80 for full plenum cover, battery cover, rs4 washer surround and aircon pipe cover (even though its not fastened down) there's a good thread on here somewhere with all the parts listed and plenty of pics

    I know what you mean. They're strangely inconsistent, some parts are absurdly expensively, others surprisingly reasonable.

    I got mine from Stoke Audi parts.. they are sponsors on here, and cheaper than the Reading dealership near me.

    I'm in a slightly weak negotiating position because as I type this, the car is having window tints fitted.

    Hi,
    I fancy putting a couple of these additional covers on my 3.0 TDI cab, and as I already have a full plenum chamber and battery cover from the factory I was wondering if anyone knows if the passenger side front cover (by washer bottle lid) fit all engine variants? As the EPC only show it on the V8.
    Also does anyone know the pt. no. for the additional cover by the A/C pipes and air filter?
    Many Thanks.

    your welcome mate, this is how ours looks now,

    [​IMG]

    i think the part you need is the ecu cover as you thought, although when you remove the cover on mine underneath is the bare ecu and wiring for it. I don't have the smaller black box like you. Anyway I think the part number you need to investigate is 8E2 907 613D and its £19 + vat. I hope this helps, if I can do anything else please let me know.
