    Talking strictly interior here, I have seen about changing to double din and throwing in a sat nav, tossing in an arm rest, maybe adding all the floor lights and stuff like that, but what else can be done and who has done it? Pictures welcome!

    Gonna be getting myself an A3 of this age very soon, after having posted an advice thread up a while back. Just doing all the research I can!

    If you just have the basic single courtesy lamp, putting in the full function overhead console with the reading lamps and the mood lighting for the gear lever area is a simple swap, and you can pick the bits up quite easily on eBay. I think I started a thread somewhere asking about this and how it is done.

    Just dug that up, seems like a nice upgrade, where does the light for the gear area originate from?

    Interior LED lights from T8ups are the first mod that everybody should do to the interior. Make a massive difference!

    The overhead console has two little red LEDs just behind the rear view mirror that shine down onto the ashtray/gear lever panel. Make sure you get the right colour of panel though for your interior, S-Lines are all charcoal grey, the rest are light grey.

    Photos don't do them justice as they're brighter in real life but stolen from Jameze in another thread....
