Default Storage compartment steering wheel panel

I was bored last night and came across this storage compartment and would like to know if this is from a RHD or LHD car? Also would like to know if this is from a PFL or FL car? I want to find one for my S8.

Thats left hand drive. Apart from the shape, the 4D1 tells you that. Also, from the coarse grain in the vinyl its from a PF, backed up by the '95 date stamp

Do you have the knee bar in yours? It should be relatively simple to get one from our German friends.

Cool that it's from a LHD car. I wasn't sure if it was LHD or RHD and forgot to use the part number that's listed on the ad in parts search to find that out. Bummer it's not from a FL car.

Knee bar, meaning knee panel? My car has a knee panel but it doesn't have the storage compartment. I believe all D2 cars that America got just knee panels. Here is a picture from BAT of the knee panel without the storage compartment.

Knee somethingorother I know US-market Corrados had a horrid padded panel where everyone else had nice tidy storage pockets.

The vinyl pattern is different between PF and FL so you'll need to look for an FL version. 99> in Europe

I hate how we never got the storage compartment. One of past old Audi I had I was able to install a storage compartment knee panel and it actually gave me more leg room over the original knee panel that never got a storage compartment.

Thanks for the information about the PF and FL version. I'll keep looking for a FL one that's black in color.
