    Is this the same thing when it comes to retro-fitting?

    Defo wanna get this done soon, and the silly flick switch with 3 settings is doing my nut in!

    Anyone done this before and have part numbers of whats needed on an 8P?

    Cheers

    If you don't have a sunroof and have the dark S3 / S-Line headlining then the part number is 8E0 947 135 D6 PS £69 +VAT. Simple plug and play, no coding required....
