    I understand to fit a double DIN headunit or the Sudi sat nav into a single DIN dash I will need the Audi double DIN dash mounting and climate controls.

    Does anyone know the part numbers of these parts?

    Thanks

    No mate you dont need the specific climate controls. I fitted mine about 5 weeks ago and trimmed the climate to fit. I do still need to trim a few mm for it to be perfect but others dont notice.

    Just take your time doing it and trim a little at a time until it fits and you should be alright. There is nothing difficult about it but I would always prefer to trim/file it 5 or 6 times to get it right rather than once and take to much off it.

    The console does need to be trimmed slightly when changing to a double din frame but this is very easy and these instructions are great.
