Default 09 to 08 Dash swap?

Hi im looking into buying an A4 Estate 2.0 TDi which i can afford an 08 model with a 80,000 mileage, however i was curious when looking as to why i could never find a 58, and then i realised that it was because they changed the shape and brought out a new one in 09, now i was looking at the A6 and i just love the interior, where it makes you feel like your sitting in a **** pit and all the dials kinda face you, like in the 2009 A4 model, so i felt a bit upset knowing that i cant afford the 2009 model and that the 2008 had basically the same as the past model before it. So i was wondering if it where possible to swap the dashboard?

This is what i mean:
2008 model
Google Image Result for

And 2009 model:
Google Image Result for

It looks to much about 1 million times better, and more modern... is it possible to swap them? because if not, its really hard to decide weather to wait for the price to drop and me to have more money for the new model, just for the interior :/

Like engine swaps, anything is possible with enough money and ingenuity. Those card are entirely different platforms, dimensions are different, controls and modules likely different, and parts that drive functions on the 09 dash won't even exist in the 08. If you're insistent on getting the 09 interior, wait to buy the car it comes in.
