    Hi ASN.
    Another help required post by me.

    I finally won an armrest for my s3.
    Will one from a '98 A3 fit ok into my facelift '01 S3?.....(i really hope the answers yes)
    If so,
    The one i won has a grey alcantara lid... Unfortunatly my interiors the half leather/ ivory alcantara, so its going to look balls.
    Are the lids replacable?. or re-trimable?

    Or am i stuck waiting to buy a leather or cream lid from ebay?.

    Many thanks

    Mrcsw

    heres the item:
    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    Not sure yet, ive been watching it for a while... And stuck in a last minute bid.
    The pics make it look like very good condition.

    Ive seen wrap around covers for the lid on Ebay.
    Ages ago there was a cream alcantara lid, which would suit my interior perfectly.
    But i'd be tempted to go for a leather lid as it'll get less mucky.

    Can anyone confirm it'll fit my s3 being a facelift model?
    Cheers

    Nice one, I was keeping an eye on this as the alcantara lid tickled my fancy. I have a black leather lid we could possibly do a deal on or if you want to sell the alcantara lid I'll have it off you if it matches my steering wheel. :)

    Maz, That sounds like a plan!.:w00t:
    Ill see what it looks like when it shows up.
    That was another option - to see if i could source a suade steering wheel lol.

    Can anyone confirm if the prefacelft armrest fits a post facelift vehicle?. Please.

    Mate armrest will fit! Funny that these were an option in the Uk. I'm sure these all came standard Down Under. But my top is busted so I'm in the same boat as u guys sourcing a replacement

    I won my black leather arm rest off eBay for £30 brand new condition with cup holders, but got rid of the cup holders as i didn't like them. I still haven't fitted it yet I must get around to doing it, just thought I'd tell you all. :whistle2:

    I have no need for a cup holder, the in dash one is perfect... and passengers can hold their drink.

    Callum, Im sure a car retrimmer could match the leather and retrim it for not a lot of dosh, failing which have you tried Audi for a new lid in cream?
