    I'm waiting for some for my A6 too. People have used them, the consensus seems to be they're 'ok'.

    I got a set of those and they looked great at the time

    Now a few months on and they have reacted with the plastic and looked crap

    Save your money

    The colour i use is Matt 8 it's a matt black paint but they do loads of mat black paints! I tried them all to get a decent match, i also use a very fine brush to tickle it in

    I fitted some of these too,they're OK but not amazing,also when you clean off the old rubberized paint try to keep to just the centre of each button as the replacements dont fit completely over the whole surface so you'll get a red/blue outline around each button (like mine)
