    Has anybody got one lying around they want to get rid of or no where to get one from as the far right one in my centre vents just won't adjust it just flaps about so I thought I'd just install a boost gauge pod and nail two birds with one stone and fit a apiro boost gauge.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ill swap my APR pod for your seats! ;)

    Jokes aside, you could do like me and order the apr pod from apr germany. Its outragesly expensive tho, like £100.

    i picked up some spare vents from a breakers yard, and set to with a stanley knife and pair of snips.

    This was the result:

    Ive got 3 spare vents from my old S4, so will probably do the same until I get a decent pod ordered

    KingDL: The seats are a icon to the car and they are in excellent condition for the age nice try though lol

    Cheers for the options guys I may go down the DIY route instead of paying £100 for a piece of moulded plastic !!

    I'm selling a Glowshift gauge that is a near perfect match for the B5 clocks if anyone is interested.
    In the classifieds.
