    Here is the link:
    Armrest Centre Console for AUDI 80 100 200 A2 A3 A4 A6 | eBay

    I just cant justify at the min paying the silly amount for OEM from Audi.

    So has anyone bought something similar to the above?
    How does it line up/fit good?

    Any help is appreciated.


    Also a silly question but in the OEM one does it cover the fatter blank pocket towards the rear in the centre console?
    I use this for my phone lol

    Many thanks !

    Save your money and put it towards a used OEM one, they do come up for sensible money you just need to be patient

    Personally a non oem one would put me off... Keep an eye on eBay or breakers they pop up quite a lot

    I bought one similar to this and it snapped off after around 6 months of use. The problem with this type is the fixing design.....just not strong enough.
    I replaced it with an exact copy of the OEM version which has the metal bracket fitting to the existing mounts etc. I think it was around £55, feels solid and like it is factory fitted. Can't remember the seller but it was off e-bay.

    That looks like the one I've got but with cloth instead of leather. Good quality if it's the same seller.

    I got a genuine one in excellent condition for £40 delivered from ebay... you just have to be patient and keep your eye on it regularly.
