    Does anyone know, or has anyone attempted to fit an S3 leather handbrake lever into an A3?

    Would it be a straight swap?

    Also any idea as to the cost of the part?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    I've done this mod on mine.

    Wasn't too hard to do, but you need to remove a lot of trim and make sure the bolt on the screw thread is adjusted to the same position as that on the original hand brake.

    Markb,

    Thanks for the response. How much was the handbrake?

    Cost me £20 second hand.

    Not sure how much one would be new though.
