    Paino black interior trim

    my car has the piano black gloss interior trim but i notice my gearstick surround and ashtray are just normal matte black plastic, but some of the other cars i test drove had the walnut finish and the aluminium style finish and both had the same effect on gearstick surround and ashtray, should mine have the same gloss black around the gearstick??

    It's meant to be matte black. I don't think Audi ever made the gear surround and ashtrays in piano/gloss black

    Ide be interested to know this too as mine sounds the same as yours, both the gearstick surround and ashtray have started to peel and it would be good to know if there is a surround that could be bought to match the rest of the trims before I go to TPS to order replacements

    this seems to be a very close match, seems to be an american wrap manufacturer "oracal" cant seem to find it over here at all, but id say 3m 1080 wrap shouldnt be far off

    Ive just painted mine to get rid of the matt black that was scratched,make sure you remove all the rubber coating before spraying.
    All fitted with new gearknob,chuffed with it.

    I'll get some tomorrow.
    First remove the ashtray cover and surround then seperate the 2 alli strips on the ashtray and the strip that holds them.
    I used wet and dry to remove the rubberised coating followed by 4 coats of grey primer de nibbing between coats,5 coats of gloss black de nibbing again.I applied 6 coats of laquer and de nibbed as neccesary.All done with cans.
    A massive improvement from the standard finish imo.

    Yeah like it. With a polish up it should look even better
