Hi Tony,

the parts are from a post-face-lift Audi V8, no doubt which year of 
manufacture. The car was completely rotten, hence only parts of the 
interior survived. But they are definetely worth the effort!

I'm about to find out the differences of the glovebox on European V8. Do 
you think/know if both are, if dismounted, like closed boxes? The mine 
looks like one big module.

We have the same differences here, regarding the instruments. BUT, and 
that's the big difference, our Audi 200 20V dashboards fully cover both 
sides (whereas the US-versions have small covers on both sides). So our 
Audi 200 gloveboxes are just cheap boxes whereas the US-versions seem to 
be real drawers, like the European V8s.

Thanks and regards
