    I'm sure there's someone in the UK that can do this cheaper? It's basically just a carbon veneer over a Base Model trim set I would imagine...

    Try these guys Streamline Carbon — Northamptonshire, UK: Call us: 07715 055580 and ask them to quote for doing yours?

    or get some base model trims, one of these kits Carbon fibre skinning kit - cover / wrap your own parts in carbon fiber - Carbon Mods and have a bash yourself. :D

    haha thing is tho if i was going to do that id want to know how long it was going to take, as it could be a while and if thats the case i wouldnt be so fussed about doing the $200 deposit thing and then sending my old trims back in

    ive had a little look but this was about the only thing that came up, tho tbf ive not really looked that hard yet

    humm not something that i would want to try really... could go wrong oh so easily and then id bugger up my existing trims lol

    will give them a shout in the next few days see if they do carbon wrapping, but by hte looks of it they only do solid cf and as they dont do audi as standard would be custom moulds and can see that being ŁŁŁŁŁŁ

    Thats why you buy some el cheapo base model ones no-one wants and do it to them - not the ones in your car. Then if its does go wrong you've still got yours.

    Evening Ryan

    Thank you for your enquiry, We have not produced any parts for the Audi no, we can certainly consider it yes, we would require images of the standard components initially , from different angles and in situ on the vehicle and off the car, i can then give a ball park figure and volume required to be able to produce for you.

    I look forward to your response

    Kind regards

    chris

    so i guess we just need to send some pics & volumes intended??

    sounds good to me, woulld be good to know how many people would be interested in it and what bits they wanted, see if there could be a difference in say just doing the front of the car if it is say a 3Dr as i didnt even notice the trim the back of my car as ive never sat in the back lol
    if it doesnt work out that viable i may have a word with the guy in america see if they will be willing to do a bit of a discount for a bulk purchase as well
