Anyone replaced S3 lower door trim? Question about colour/painting
My car needs new lower door plastic trims as the old ones were starting to come away towards the rear. I got these from the local stealer (about £80 each, rip off) and was disappointed to find them light grey in colour, instead of the glossy dark grey ones I'd taken off the car. Confirmed with the parts guy that they just came with primer on and had to be painted.
Now in the meantime my car has gone into the (audi) bodyshop for another job. I asked them to paint the new door trims for me, but they've said that the light grey IS the original colour and they don't need to be painted. It doesn't seem right to me - as well as the clear difference in colour, the new ones have a kind of matt texture wheras the old ones are very smooth.
Can anyone who has had to replace these shed any light on this?
