    Morning all, I purchased my first 53 plate A3 yesterday and wanted to say hello.

    The car is in mint condition but the thing that i find offensive is the wooden trim on the interior and the offside drivers door card has a small gash in it. It is a 3 door and wondering what I can do about it? As I'm new to the world of audi's any information off you guys would be massively appreciated, can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Many thanks!

    James.

    Hi, welcome to audi-sport.net. You could always carbon wrap the wooden trim. Enjoy the forum. :) x

    Here is mine wrapped. It's not overly difficult to do. Just be patient. Use a heat gun on low heat to stretch the vinyl around the angles and corners, also to set the glue.

    A3. Actually cost less than the s-tronic knob and had the punched leather and silver stitched boot i was after.
    The ebay seller only has LHD though so had to swap over the plastic piece on the boot with my existing one.

    Was it a one off or have they got more? I've got the same boot.
