    Yarp, I had this prob too... was going to mod an A4 one as it can be trimmed to fit but found someone wanting a double din console so swapped the bits... you need the cage at the very least, you can trim the climate control unit but luckily the guy swapped this too and had the lower compartment as well... lots of stuff to remove to get it done though, most of the lower part of the dash apart to get at the cage.

    Went from this..
