    Hi,
    Just a few quick questions as I don't have this piece of trim on my A3:

    [​IMG]
    (This isn't my pic,obviously, and I have borrowed it from the A3/S3 pic from ChriS3. Wish my engine bay was 1/2 as nice as that!!:wub::anbet:)

    1. Is this an S3 only option?
    2. If no, can it be fitted to an A3, if so does anyone know the part number and price?

    Thanks in advance
    Reesyboy

    Its S3/LCR specific... it can be made to fit of course as they are the same under the hood withion reason... there is a bracket that fits next to the expansion bottle that the trim panel is fixed down too you may need as well...

    Then it might look like this..

    The bracket is screwed in using the same screws as the expansion bottle...

    Top left behind the bottle..

    Finesse - I'm guessing that I'll need 20 and then 21/22/23/24 are the bracket and the screws needed etc?

    Tufty - Thanks for your help, thats a nice looking engine bay by the way!

    I might have a cover in the garage as i removed all my engine cover etc, Bracket may have gone though. Will have a look for you tomorrow when i'm in the garage. Your welcome to have it for the postage costs.
