    A4 B7 Black Optics Pack

    Does anyone know if you can retrofit a black optics pack? I've seen many grill surrounds changed - but I wondered if its easy to change the window surrounds to the black optic parts as well? If so are there any garages offering it? Grateful for any advice!

    it can be done a good few hours removeing and refitting tho
    just wrap them very easy cheaper and looks just as good.

    Dont see why not. If you can source chrome vinyl then no reason why not..... the guy I used had brushed aluminium vinyl for a while, but if I remember, it wasnt cheap.


    Not sure where you're all located, but if any of you are in or near central Scotland - I can put you in touch with the guy who did mine - he'lll be able to sort you out with a top job at a great price.

    Not much help for those of you dan sarf though

    I got Keith (KTP, red Skodas etc etc) to do mine Euan.

    His prices for doing this would be:

    Grille surround only: £30
    Window Surrounds only: £30
    He'll do the Grille and Windows together for £55

    Note that these prices are for satin black vinyl. If you wanted something else then best to speak to him about it as the price may change depending on what vinyl is needed.

    The job he made of mine can be found here: Bye bye chrome

    And his website is: http://thesignshop.biz/

    Keith is fantastic at what he does, and to those local enough to justify the trip - I cant recommend him highly enough.

    Hopefully thats of some use to a few of you - I know a few have expressed an interest in wrapping of late.
