    i am enquiring as to whether the sunglasses holder off the MK4 Golf will fit my A3 replacing the drivers grab handle. I have been told only minor mods to hole centres in the holder is all thats required. Has anyone had experience in fitting this holder?

    There's one from (IIRC) the Bora that fits with NO MODS required. I don't have the part number, but have a gray one on the driver's side of my TQ. If I find the numbers, I'll post them up.

    I'll try to remember to look at lunch. Maybe the #'s on it somewhere. Btw, is your '3 pre- or post-facelift? I "Think" it may make a difference (But not sure).

    OK, I've a light blue headliner so figured the gray one would blend best, and the number is......

    8B0 857 465 B (I think it's the last letter that determines color)

    Just found out the Passat holder will fit as hole centres are the same at 170mm, Golf mk4 centres 145mm. Had rang VAG Parts and they quote the Golf mk4 suitable so i questioned them on hole centres and they replied that if my hole centres are 170mm, Passat will fit. They say they have not come across this before

    Dude, here's a pic of a light gray one fitted on my light blue headliner. In the harsh light from the flash, it's more noticeable, but otherwise, I think it looks fine (Esp. once I get one for the other side to match)
