    Does anybody know if the Newsouth gauge column pod will fit the 8L S3, or have any pics of them fitted if so?

    Cheers

    I personally think the pillar trims are different! Different shape if I'm not mistaken

    Likewise... Tried & failed. It did the job for testing etc. & held on with tape, but in the end it ended up the loft with a bunch of other stuff...

    I bought one from a member on here and can 110% confirm, these do not fit a3 8l. I will be fibreglassing mine to the factory colum. If I had the choice again I wouldn't have bought it, wish I had of bought and fibreglassed a universal pod onto the standard colum
