    Picture of Piano Varnish Fascia Trim please?

    Hiya guys,

    does anyone have a picture of the Piano Varnish Fascia Trim at all? I see this on the option list for the A3 S Line, and would like to see some pics to get a feel if I would like this, or just leave it standard?

    Thanks

    Thats the only pic I have of it, you can see it around the gearstick. It looks miles better than the ally trim but is a bugger and scratches really easily, even with normal cleaning it will leave little scratches which you can see when the light catches it.

    More examples:




    If swirled; use scratchX or some similar product and wax afterwards...it's a nice touch to the interior IMO

    I rather like the all black look. But I kind of got used to it in my old 8L S3.

    Photos don't do piano black any justice at all. Very difficult to photograph in bad light. I've got it in mine and it looks great but as others say...a pig to keep scratch free. Just have to remember not to rub it with your hands, always a soft cloth. Then maybe every few months use some megs plast-X to get rid of the scratches. Scratches are impossible to get out of brushed aluminium, bare that in mind.
    I've got the satin finished solid aluminium gearknob in mine and it looks superb with the piano black surround and the little ali strip around it. I am however looking to put aluminium trim into the doors but keep it black around the gearstick (new RS6 style). Also....I want to fit S3 air vents and ali pedals so any more aluminium and it'll look totally overkill.

    So does the aluminium make the car like Luke's rebel alliance X-fighter? Join the dark side....
