Aftermarket Head Unit

Has anyone out there managed to get the correct facia panel for the Sportback?

I bought an Autoleads one (FP-05-05) and its too damn tall for the gap and the angles on the sides are not right. The guys who supplied it said it was the closest they had and they could doctor it, at a price, but I'd rather have the right adaptor. If there is one out there yet.

Any ideas?

is it not the same as the 3dr one then? Mines a perfect fit and colour match, and was about £8 from Audi

I don't think so, was it an Autoleads facia?

I called the dealer this afternoon, he said there isn't one! Unless the Sportback is different from the 3 door, but that would be daft, wouldn't it?

Autoleads have given me a part no for the 'correct' part, I'll have to order one in and see if it fits.

Ah, just spotted the facia adaptor in my storage and remembered this thread /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

The part number is 8P0 035 459.

Ordered one from Norwich Audi this morning, £5.63! That's half the price of the Autoleads product, which is still cheap.

Thanks again guys.

Does this fit both 3dr and sportback?

The part number '8P0 035 459 trim for radio aperture 1-DIN' is shown in the Audi etka parts catalogue as the same for both 3-door and Sportback models.

OK sorted it all out this morning, the headunit is now in the correct surround, the Brodit clip now fits properly, the iPod is connected to the Alpine unit, the Parrot kit works perefectly with the V3 phone and as a GPS. It's so nice when all the technology works!

Just as a point of reference all Autoleads products are shyte. None of them fit properly including their speaker adapters.

yup that's about spot on!

And twice the price of the genuine Audi part, how do they stay in business?

I'd like to see what a really nice looking non-standard head unit looks like.
Something classy and understated.

The ones I've seen so far,including my MD's Sony headunit in his TT (with Bose) are a bit 'flash'.

Something like this (just an example)

Anyone handy enough with a PC to transpose this onto the photos of the interior above ???
