    Worn Buttons

    There's a few buttons on the inside of my S3 that have worn quite badly. I've seen this on quite a few, so it got me wondering there must be a market for replacement buttons, does anyone know of any one that does them?
    I know obviously audi would be the first place to try but I can see me paying through the nose for that sort of thing.

    Call them Faz - they hold a lot more parts than advertised on their site. However I'm guessing it's not a popular part and probably made by another manufacturer - might be worth while finding out whom? Don't quote me though - I may be totally wrong!

    oh and that's a complete joke for the button from Audi's point of view.

    Hi,

    Cd Marker pen works in the daytime, but just been out in mine for first time in the dark, since I used a CD pen on my climate control at the weekend. I can say, it does not look great at night. the '-' buttons are surrounded by a slightly dimmer red splodge now, rather than just one large splodge...

    I'll try to get a small tin of matt black paint tomorrow and will report back.

    Cheers,
    Alistair

    Still not the most expensive problem I've got as I went for a spin with Dave_B yesterday, and it's going to cost me money as I now need a remap... Doh!!
