    So I ordered an A3 2002 leather arm rest with fixings from fleabay, it arrived...all good.

    when I went to trial fit it, the centre console must be different as it doesn't mate up. Can anyone post up a Pic of the S3 arm rest and how it fits in with the centre console trim please as I'm stuck?.

    Looks like there's a hole it should go through.

    You have to cut the rectangular trim out between the ashtray and handbrake so that you can attach the armrest to the body of the car.

    If you do a search there is plenty of information with detailed pictures.
