    Home made carbon fibre trim pieces installed

    After seeing the price of the genuine Audi carbon trims, almost no change from a Ł1000! I decided there must be a cheaper way. Managed to call in a favour from a friend who works as a military aircraft fabricator.

    These are the results, what do you reckon?

    Before:



    After:



    Also picked up a new gear knob and hanbrake lever grip in 'air' leather to match the steering wheel.



    They look a little shiny in the pic but thats just the camera flash.



    Overall I'm well pleased, all for the bargain price of Ł60 for the gearknob and handbrake lever from Ebay.de.

    Yeah he's done me proud. Did owe me a big favour though! It took him about three weeks to complete them as he can only work and use the machinery at work during lunch-breaks and saturday mornings etc.

    The weave looks very even and deep, thats the benefit of military grade carbon I guess
