    the change over was 1999, so you could find late pfl cars, most t and v reg will be fl, 1999 was odd as you had all 3 letters to deal with,

    The avant switched to a "pin" catch sometime around '98, it changed way before the facelift.

    Easy way to tell is the "pin" catch cars have three headrests, the earlier loop catch cars have two.

    Your pic doesnt work btw.

    My R reg 98 avant is PFL with 3 head rests and the join latch.

    Go for a facelift boot bits. They have a 2nd 12v supply.

    It's a pain in the ass
    I spent months finding my boot covers.
    I even went to audi to buy new but at £135 each I said no. Lol

    afaik the only cars with a complete black interior are TQS and S4's

    Everything else was at best black lowers and beige uppers.

    TQS and S4 plastics should fit your FWD just fine though, so just find someone breaking one and get everything you need.
