    Silver Rings to dash board!

    After seeing a picture of someones A3/S3 with silver rings installed to the dash i ordered some and they showed up yesterday.

    After getting the Speedo/Rev counter etc display out i started to install the rings...

    The DIS, feul and engine temp fitted perfectly but the rev counter and speedo were slightly too big!

    After a lot of getting F'd off i opened the glue they supplied with the rings...

    i punctured the top and squeezed very gently so i could see how thick the glue was.

    All of a sudden, SQUIRT and the stuff sprayed accross me, the centre console and into the clear plastic of the drivers display unit.

    After a lot of use of scouring cream i finally got the crap off it but now its got lots of very fine scratches!

    So 30 down, scratched drivers display, 80 jeans f***ed and still no rings fitted to the display!!

    All in all not very happy!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsdown.gif[/img]

    make sure u keep the glue away from the dash mate thats all i can say and if you do don't use any that is like water!! Neither will fit at all! both too big and would not go in!

    much too tight!

    I've emailed the seller but they are german so i'm just hoping they understand me.

    Fitted mine last night. No probs, no glue, 10 mins to fit max and a bag of Kung Fu Bear Sweets to make it even better. They look ace!

    Sorry to hear you had probs with yours!

    Bizarre episode!

    I found the golf ones had to be squeezed to fit them in but not so they distorted. My A3 ones fitted fine also.
