    Try your local Halfords or VAG PARTS.

    I think you'll find they all tend to be around the £10 mark.

    halfords is SH*TE!!!

    I tried them-the quality and fit is terrible!!

    I ordered them from the dealers anyhoo....so at least i know that they will fit. They took my chassis number to match the part correctly!!!

    Get them on tuesday. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif

    That looks very nice mate....

    Where are you in the northwest??? I wouldnt mind seeing that close up. I like the idea of putting something in place of the compartment above the ashtray. Like a DVD or EQ or summat.

    I have the official audi blankers for my 2000 1.8T A3, and I'd have to say, they dont fit particularly well either. The colour is spot on, but they angle wrong, so it sticks out a bit at the top end. One of them had a tab that needed bending back aswell, otherwise it wouldnt have fitted well at all! But the cheapest youre going to find is £10 anyway, so may aswell go audi!

    when buying parts like that goto any VAG dealer...


    tend to find skoda do the same part but cheaper...

    then VW are priced higher than skoda

    then audi above VW.... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
