    Hello all


    just saw Boydie's new S3 and liked the look off the TTS Air vents will these fit in a 2006 sport a3? and if so isit as simple of using a flat s/driver and pushing the old ones and slipping the new one in?


    any one have the part number and a price?:sos:

    many thanks :beerchug:

    Thanks mate - they will fit any A3 from 2004 on!

    I may consider selling my S3 ones if you are interested?

    All you have to do is turn the vent open at 0 degrees then turn it clockwise 45 degrees and you will feel a small click - then you just pry the vent out - you can use a flat head screw driver and nudge each side out easy enough!

    Thats a new dial for me, TT has different one to the S3, bastards, lol, goes to check etka.......................... & yes it is a bitch of a job to do properly

    The TT vents are great man, takes the bling away from the eyesite as it just got to much huh AJ.

    When removing take your time & patients as there's the mechanisms externally so careful not to pull out to harshly or you'll snap some bits & always check the mechanisms before putting back to make sure centered on the toothed wheels, you'll see what I mean.

    Catch you on msn Leon about vents.

    I go a quote on them ages ago, £68 each!!!!

    If they are just "Satin Chromed" plastic then i cant think they cost more than a couple of quid to make so a typical Audi price would be about £70 each i would think..

    Just waiting for my Black Edition to arrive and noticed in the Audi Price and Spec guide for the A3,it shows S3 vents on the black edition... I quite like the look of the S3 vents and after seeing this thread thought about maybe fitting new ones but please tell me I've just saved some cash :laugh:

    The black edition does have S3 vents - I think I prefer them (on the pics) to the TTS vents but I will take a look at a TT next time I'm passing Audi. Don't think I'd spend anymore than a fiver on them though tbh. Each to their own I guess... :)

    Not sure about this vent being for the S3 only - I have the Sport version and they are exactly like this.

    Had it from new, didn't spec it as an option...

    In the brochure it says Sport models have aluminium silver inlays but I guess that just refers to the doors?

    I prefer the S3 vents as they match the trim on the chrome RNS-E knobs, those vents are TT vents not TT-S specific ones.
