    I have no centre arm rest in my A4 Avant.....whats my options???

    Is it a "Genuine is best" or are there any good aftermarket ones that look OE???

    I have two tone black and grey leather........

    Personally oem is far better.

    Plenty come up on ebay, it's a common retro fit.

    A couple of decent looking OEM ones have gone up on ebay this morning, just search A4 armrest and you will find them.

    Ive snapped one up already though... :laugh:

    The lids are easily interchangeable. I'm trying to find the invoice for my lid, but from memory it was about £85. If I find it, I'll post the part number, but bear in mind it will be specific to the interior colour. Mine is black leather, how about yours?

    Found it. This was in July 2011, by the way. The part number for my leather lid is A8E0 864 245 AE 1HT, and it cost £68.09 plus VAT, That works out as £81.71 with the VAT included.

    Cheers mate.... Mine is black leather but the arm rest I have just managed to get is black but has the cloth lid..... It's better than nothing at thermite but at least I know they are interchangeable for the future... Cheers
