Hi all!

I have a question about Audi a3 8L 1.6 petrol 96-2001(2003) instrument clusters..

I have to change my instrument cluster because the speed and the RPM gauges does not work correctly.. now i have a8L0 919 860 A type with the manal clock and the original "center displayer"

I think it's the old 96-99 type..

I'd like to buy a used newer one, but i don't know if it will fit or not.. mine has two side connectors at the back, but i found a facelift type with the digital clock and two separated central din displayer

Does this newer one has 3 connectors at the back?

What is the difference between the 8L0 919 860 A Type (The first picture), the 8L0 919 860 AX, 8LO 919 860 B, BX, 8LO 919 860 E, and EX types?
I can not find any documentation about this on the internet :(

I found out that the 8L0 919 860 is only with the KMH and the 8LO 919 910 is with the KMH the MPH type..

Thanks for all the comments :)
