    We got a B5 picture thread and people offten post pictures up of their car, which is nice and I like to see what other people do and its nice to get ideas for future mods, wheels and so on.

    But one aspect our cars that is rearly seen is the interior. The different stereos, dash colours, seats, mats, steering wheels, clocks and so on.

    Lets see whats in side and what you've done or changed. :)

    Heres mine.

    Scott... when fitting the facelift centre console, did you have any problems with compatibility between the electrical components? What I mean is, the heater controls, hazard switch, etc...?

    I've also got heated seats in mine, so finding a facelift console to match is proving difficult.

    Cheers,

    Giles

    Hazard switch should be a streight swap.

    Fog lights are completely differnet and require a relay module, as the FL switches are momentary.

    The headlight aim is moved to the drivers knee bolster, so you'll need to extend the wires, and the rear screen demister is connected to the climate unit on a FL.

    The heater controls themselves are more or less plug and play, i think you may need to add one wire to sort the illumination.

    i also think the heated seat switches can be added to a non-heated facelift console. The switches are actually seperate, and simply poke thru a hole in the climate fascia.

    It was all easy mate. Every thing just plugged in apart from the rear demister. That was a little different.
    The hazard switch you can rewire or just swap the fronts over.
    The fog light switches are for show, they just light up, you will need to wire in a fog light control unit from a facelift to get them to work.
    The illuminations on the buttons, card/cup holder needs wiring up and I think thats it.

    I'm on the look out for a facelift HVAC with heated seats as well.
    You after double or single din?

I'm after a set.keep meaning to do the sunglasses mod but keep forgetting lol.did you add the Bose speaker grills?all these facelift B5 with the little plastic spacers.

    What is that steering wheel off Kev?

    And... where's the sunglasses mod? Have you got a picture of it please?

    And... (finally) is the B6 knob and gaitor a direct fit?

    Cheers,

    scott, yep changed complete door cards for bose grills and drivers one has an extra speaker for o.e phone kit
    cup holder fits in gap next to handbrake, genuine part that shows up on ebay every so often, holds 2 cups/cans perfectly and you dont get coffee dripping on stereo, can get p/n if you want it
    theres a guide on audiworld to retrofitting tip wheel to get it working on auto

    giles, steering wheels from tiptronic model, buttons are for gear change, would be cool if they could adjust stereo volume but i wouldnt even know where to start
    sunglasses holder is a genuine vw part that replaces drivers grab handle, available on ebay but check size as they do different ones for golf/passat, oh and they only come in light grey or beige
    gearknob screwed straight on and they come with gator attached which you can clamp in place on facelifts
    had one on my old pre facelift avant but gator was too small so had to strip it down and fit original gator

    Oldz, For the steering wheel trip to work don't you need to have the 4/5speed trip control box installed?
    I read about it somewhere. If you got the link to hand could you post it please?

    Part number for the cup holders and sun glasses holders would be cool. The grab handle is pointless on the drivers side.

    Any one seen or read any thing about the Auto knob changing for a B6 or any other model?

    Nope. Mine is not but its only a 4 speed.
    I have read you can convert it to tip by changing the control unit and the knob.

    WHORE!!!!! Ha ha. Looking nice mate!:cool:

    Couple of questions 1) How is your box fixed down? Have an idea but just want to see how other people have done it in a saloon. 2) How easy was the passat arm rest to mod n fit? Might consider this but needs to be leather.

    Cheers, Mick.

    Couple of strips of velcro on the underside of the box and a couple of brackets at the top bolted thru the skin beind the rear seat back :) even throwing the car round a roundabout rather hashly hasnt budged it...

    Passat armrest was a doddle really. im sure you'll be able to get a leather one... all the fixings are already there in the car, just couple of mods to the plastic console in the A4 so that it sits flat. oh and getting it out of the old passat console was a bit of a pain when trying to separate the armrest and the base fixings, it appears to have a soft alloy crush point under the bolt which i had to drill out and replace with a larger washered bolt. need to see if i can get some more interior matched fabric and re-cover the lid. (oh and add illumination+power in there :D)

    EDIT: Mick, there you go eBay

    I've just raped a facelift avant for all its' interior plastic goodness, so hopefully in a few weeks time, the S4's interior will look a little different!

    I did leave the auto-dip rear view mirror in it though, but may go back for it this week. Anyone know what's involved with fitting it? Where do I pick the feeds up from for it... there appears to be about ten wires going to it!

    LeeT, Does the controls on that steering wheel work or even the air bag? I thought they was duel feeds and did not work with out single feeds?

    GeeMan, I assume the mirror just needs power and feed to say the lights are on. You can take power feed from the light up there. I took my light feed from one of the blocks in the passenger footwell. Can't remember the colour but I'll take a look later if you want. I'll also take a look at Elsa tonight for you for a wiring.

    Scott... that's what I presumed and was expecting just two wires to it... but there were about ten wired connecting to it!

    Might go back this afternoon after work and whip it off.

    Not wanting to teach you how to suck eggs (no idea where that saying came from) but make sure you take it from the loom in the head lining as far back as you can.

    I got a feeling that the interior mirror also controls the side mirrors. cause you can get the mirror that darkens the same as the review mirror.
    I think Byzan fitted this to his motor. I got the wires and plugs on my new mirrors.

    Check out the mirrors on that S4 and the mirror switch, it might have the side mirrors to go with the review mirror, if it has. take them and hope the guy just thinks its normal glass, saves you a few bob. :)

    Well, to be honest, he didn't charge me the earth for the bits I took anyway!

    I took full centre consoles (front & rear with arm rest!), illuminated vents, glovebox, drivers door trim (for a friend), spare-wheel tools & associated bits, warning triangle and bracket, scuttle cover (which highlighted the fact that the lower windscreen trims ARE different on a facelift A4!) all for £35.

    I would expect he'll charge me a fiver for the rear view mirror. Can't complain at that! Arm rests are fetching £45 on their own...!

    **** me, thats a bloody good deal mate.
    Why the glove box?

    The scuttles are different, did you pick up the rubber bit as well? Thats also different between the two.

    is it black interior?

    rear arm rest? Whats the different?

    I assume you got the leather hand break handle?

    Glove box is for my friend Ben as his is heavily marked... so just to neaten up his interior (which is already facelift!).

    Oh yeah, forgot about the leather handbrake. Got it!

    The (front) arm rest is only cloth though. Worth getting anyway I thought. I already have a facelift leather arm-rest installed (with the gap at the front where it meets the PFL front console! lol

    If I go back for the mirror, I'll also pick up the windscreen lower trim and firewall rubber too then. Anything else I should be robbing?

    Damn, I wanted that leather handle. thats all I'm missing. lol

    Wipers?
    Lights?
    engine covers?
    Their rear boot trim on the slam pannel has that funky cover that flips up I think.
    Shame its not a Avant, I could do with a couple of bits.
    steering wheel?

    EDIT:=- Fog light control box, so you can use facelift fog light switches with with pre-facelift fog lights.
    If not for you, I'll have it with all joining cables and plugs. :)
