    Carbon Fibre Parts

    In response to some queries I thought it best to get some ideas of numbers of people interested in genuine carbon fibre parts from Argon Creative. Obviously the higher the number the lower to overall cost as R&D will be shared across them so click which ones you would consider having and we can see what the costs will be...

    I'll let the poll finish before approaching the guys at Argon to guage costs and keep everyone posted. If you want to see their work and quality before committing head over to Facebook where they have a page or their own website to see some of the stuff they have done already. I'm not associated with them but having had work done by them know that they do a top quality job and finding a decent cf fabricator is difficult at the best of times.

    By engine covers I was looking at the ones you can get now but non OEM which will hopefully make them a lot less than the £550+ Audi want them for which IIRC includes the coil pack cover

    Osir design do all the engine bits.. This is where I was going to order mine from......

    but if these guys can do a better deal I'd be well interested, rather than muck around with import duty, shipping etc..

    Carbon Fibre Parts

    That's exactly what I was just looking at only issue will be shipping I think. Duty will be a pain aswell

    Please post up or advise any potential buyers of the full company details of who you intend to deal with, to avoid any issues later on, nothing personal, but these things can easily become a problem when things go wrong & the forum has to have some responsibility towards its members, appreciate the time you're spending on this for others, so please dont take offense

    I will be looking for each member to deal with Argon Creative directly including their ordering and payment details should they choose to proceed. This was not designed to be a GB but equally the company needs to know how much interest there is to generate prototypes and pricing.If there is enough interest I will be donating the parts to make moulds of from my car since I'm most local or R&D costs will include the purchase of an OEM part to make a mould from.

    Looked into hydrographics a number of times and TBH they aren't heat resistant so would be rubbish for engine parts and scratch easily. Not the same looks or durability wise as proper cf.

    My friend's company does a lot of Carbon stuff...

    He's very popular over on the TTforum and TTOC. He does a lot of mirrors over there!!

    Carbonwurks
    info@carbonwurks.com

    It's only a basic site but has all his contact details are there! He doesn't have the RS3 components on the shelf but can have them built. Much like what the OP said about R&D...

    Well worth a read of this thread to see how popular his carbon is!
