    I'm in the midst of dropping an ahu tdi unit from a mk3 golf into my early t4, and have been trying to figure out whether I can fit the air con from the golf in while I'm at it. It's only basic air con so not the climatronic system, so hopefully it shouldn't be too complicated. Has anyone done...
