This poll is to gauge some interest on who would be interested in Genuine Carbon Fibre B Pillars for their Audi A3s, S3s, RS3s.
I am in talks with a guy I used to go to school with whose company deals in a lot of carbon for the Audi TT. I have mentioned to him about all the various threads I have seen pop up on here about the B-Pillars and people wanting the real deal Carbon Fibre stuff! None of this skinning or wrapping or anything like this.
These will be manufactured using Prepreg carbon fibre which is the lightest, strongest and highest quality Carbon Fibre available which will give the best results for fitment and be the hardest wearing! The carbon is then lacquered by a specialist rather than leaving the carbon dry, this ensures UV stability and protection from the elements.
Having done some research on this with him, there is no real solution out there at the moment for the A3 / S3 / RS3! We would have to start from scratch. This will involve the initial R&D, mould manufacturing and then testing etc! This all has to be paid for up front. Once everything is satisfactory after testing it would take from 3-5 weeks for your carbon to arrive once the order has been placed!
Ok so from our research we know that we could potentially cater for all A3s S3s RS3s that were manufactured between 2004 and 2013. This includes 3dr and 5dr models.
This isn't one of those loose threads, this is for people who are seriously interested in getting genuine carbon pillars for their vehicles. We need to gain a real idea on the demand for these! We can then make a decision on whether to splash out on getting the ball rolling or not.
Examples of the Carbon!
Please select from the Poll which vehicle you have that you would consider having these fitted to.
Nobody will be held to anything at this stage as I can appreciate most people want to know cold hard costs before commitment.
I'm just waiting for some images to show you an example of the Carbon Fibre! These will be put up either this evening or tomorrow!
If you have any questions / ideas / thoughts in the meantime then please do comment on this thread below!
Mods: Please could you sticky this for the next week or two please.
