    First is the clip.

    You've all seen them before and I wanted one.
    So I bought one and fitted it.
    Heres some pictures.

    Remove the A pillar trim and your left with this.

    Fit clip in the location you like. I used double sided sticky tape. I was going to use a screw but due to the angle and how close it is to the screen, I went with the tape.

    and then fit it all back together. Time will tell how long the tape holds. It should last cause the pillar also holds the clip.

    Next was the little metal panel on the rear windows.

    When I replaced my manual rear windows for electric rear windows I forgot to swap this bit over.
    With a spare 5mins I finally got round to it.

    The corroded panel, which is also the wrong colour.

    Remove the inside plastic panel to expose the torx bolt.

    Slide the panel down as far as it can go and then wiggle it till it comes out.

    And refit the correct panel and put it all back together.

    do you know where to get the side panels from, your motor is the same as mine and I am starting to have lots of little issues with it that need fixing.

    breakers yard or Audi.
    I got the panels that I removed due to the paint flaking off.
    Bit of work and some paint and they will look new again.

    The clip is to hold parking tickets, the pay and display sort.
    I hate sticking them to the window and if you put them on the dash there is a chance of them blowing away when shutting the door.
    This way they stay nice and secure on the window.

    I drive a diesel auto, no chance of speeding cause I'm to relaxed and the car is to slow. :)
