Anyone spotted anything that might just cut it on an 8P?
Its a completely different chassis, its like putting 8P mods onto an 8L. Still won't stop me trying though
Seats might work
i would love to steal the tech from an 8v but its just not going to happen
And what's wrong with doing that??? -----------> http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-sportback-8p-chassis/105342-8l-8p-conversion.html
Haha, trust you! Just read through that thread.. awesome read
That thread is classic, cant believe I have not read that before.
Ads you are a comedian
But I was serious.
i was thinking the air vents will fit?
Positive Mental Attitude lad - YOU can do it.
well i can steal it no doubt... whether it works in an 8p is the mission impossible!
I recon there will be a lot of stuff compatible for my10 upwards cars, they wouldn't have revised the Electrics for nothing besides anything can be done with the will it will be the physical fitment that's the real challenge IMHO
I'm most interested about seats... I would like to put these babies in mine:
Audi A3 S3 8V 3 TÃ¼rer Leder Lederausstattung Alcantara Komplett einbaufertig B&O | eBay
I guess fronts will probably fit, but I am not sure about the rear bench for 3-door model
Problem is finding good ones from 8p
Anyone tried this? 8V seats in 8P? Fronts would probably fit, but what about back?
you can get 8p buckets for that kind of money
How/where can I get them
also there are few cheaper seat sets on german ebay for less money than those you posted..
buy these from me! http://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/rs6-full-leather-electric-heated-memory-bucket-seats.227220/
they will fit in the 8p, will just need some wiring work done to the plugs to work on the 8P
Nothing about the 8v does owt for me, think it's spoilt the S3 summat chronic..
That's what I thought, until I drove one.......
ok guys, i'm new, but i've been reading posts here for a while already and always found my questions so i didnt need to register.
but couldnt find this so i'm asking now.
i purchased a fbmfsw from 8v and i'm trying to retrofit on my 8p3.
today trying to assemble, realized the harness connector from the airbag was not fitting...
is there a way to make it work?
do you know if its worth to try to repin the connector from the harness, or if there is a way to replace the G85.
please tell me someone knows about this, or has already done this mod.
thanks in advance
Just the look of them not a fan but I bet they do drive mint.
Any updates on the 8V seats in 8P? Has anyone tried it yet?
Yep I fitted a set of 8V seats into a 3 door 8P earlier this week. The fronts go straight in but need wiring adapted, the rears however needed some work doing to it but we managed it and it looked really nice once we had finished
How easy is to re-wire the front seat adapters? Also, for the rear seat, would it be the same or easier on a sportback?
Would love to see some pictures too!
Here are the pics
The front seats are not that easy as you need to completely rewire them to suit the 8P, all the plugs are different from the 8P plugs that are under the carpet so its a lot of work.
I can't see it being any easier on a sportback, the seat frames are different.
