    So i've just got back from the Audi dealership and there was no instructions or template with the audi supplied arm rest.
    The parts man still says they don't come with them as they are replacement parts!!

    So then i asked the service department, they don't have a template abd they have never fitted one to a A3... And also recon that there isn't one, as you have to take the centre console out and there is a cutout marked in the plastic.

    So i have two questions, how easy is it to remove the centre console?? Are there any instructions?? or pictures i could use??

    Does anyone have a template i could download/borrow???? All costs would be paid by me??

    Thanks and please let me know.

    Mine was genuine Audi and mine came with instructions and a template.

    Remind me again which car you have.

    Good old Neil! I was hoping you'd pop up. I was going to try giving you call about this.

    Rep++ :)

    All this talk of taking the centre console out is a little worrying too. In fact I'll drop you a PM too. Give me a call.

    I see you've already put the armrest in your sig. Tempting fate? :)

    I'm sure a Dremmel (sp?) will do the job. Not as scary as a jigsaw anyway...

    Dremmel did the job a treat.... All fitted and looks great, job took 15 mins including hoovering the car.... Two hours making sure i got the template up the right way and in the right place...

    Anyone want any help or advice, please let me know, as this was so easy..

    Thanks again for all the help
