    Todays interior mod

    Here is what I have been up to today:








    Fitting chrome dial surrounds. Hopefully it will look OK when done? Not sure though [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    Do you think I need some of badge on the dials like the S3?

    I'll post pics when I have done.

    Hi Mark,

    Saw the instructions on another post, was it actually easy to remove in practice?

    Cheers

    Not sure on the connectors with the A3 but on the A4 it was a mare! To make it far easier, remove the fuse panel and put the connectors in/out from behind the unit and it is also easier to push the cluster out too this way!

    nice one mate, makes it look a bit newer and crisper - better than I thought actually. I'm not too sure on the four rings sticker though... each to their own! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif[/img]

    I agree, love the chrome surrounds, top job, would have left the Audi Rings off though.

    Re: Todays interior mod

    Cheers guys I think I will be removing the audi logo tomorrow if I get chance.

    Maybe put an RS emblem on instead. Anyone got a good image on the RS emblem?

    Re: Todays interior mod

    The silver looks good. Sticker needs to go.

    I personally wouldn't go for an RS sticker either.

    When you had it apart, were you able to see the LEDs for the needles?
    I want to swap my gauge needles for the S3 items so they glow white rather than red.

    Actually, looking at the pics I guess its the needles that need to be changed not the LED.

    I might grab a unit from a scrappy before I attempt to pull the needles of mine.

    Does the dash panel insert come apart easily?

    I could see the needles and it's them that need changing rather then the LEDs.

    I wouldn't like to risk it though as I ended up buggering up the speedo in a Cavalier doing it once.

    What do you think of the RS emblem above?

    Re: Todays interior mod

    From an asthetics point of view the RS emblem is an improvement on the audi rings (which were too big and thick).

    But as a general rule, I never been one for adding stickers to make the car something that it isn't. Perhaps if your car was chipped up etc then it could earn the RS logo LOL!

    But its not my car so if you like it thats cool with me.

    The silver rings are really nice though, they match the door handles nicely.

    I'm gonna grab a busted dash panel from the breaker in the next few days and pull the needle off just out of curiosity.............also I'd need to find a set of S3 needles, which will probably be impossible anyway!!

    Looks nice. Where can get a set from. That would match my gauges nicely.

    I think the audi logo would look better if it was smaller

    NIce alu rings but like most are saying lose the sticker.
    With regards to the needles like the S3 dont do it, its NOT an easy job. Not only will the needles nned changing the led's below them have to be replaced and they are the SMT type which are a PITA to work on.
