    My 2006 A4 1.8T S-Line has no trip computer-WTF!?!?
    Astonishing considering MK5 Golf TDIs have them.
    Is it possible to retrofit using a cluster with trip computer?

    You should just need the wiper stalk with trip and someone to code it in. I've got a spare saloon stalk if interested

    Do you actually have a dis fitted, just not trip data in the display, if no dis at all then yes its a cluster job, if has dis then needs stalk fitting & coding, we offer these services.

    OK Driver information display. Not sure. I have a central display with lines seperating the different sections.
    I have miles until empty, outside air temp and something else but no button on stalk to scroll through other functions.
    Does this mean I need just the stalk?

    Mazi if you do attempt yourself, be very careful as breaking any of the parts in the way can end up costing £200+ to replace & can render the car unusable, so be careful.

    I can can heartily endorse this sentiment. My inept attempts to feed a cable for my DRLs into the fuse box left me with a £350 bill and very lucky not to lose my ECU altogether. Unless you are really confident of knowing what you're doing, pay a professional to do a professional job.
