    Hi all,
    Just popped over from the B6 section for a little advice, i am getting the erge to change the B6 for a B7, having done a little research i think i would go for a 2.0 170 tdi S-line black eddition but it would need to be the right spec as i have quite a wish list, i am in no hurry so waiting is no problem, my main question is do all the black edditions come with a black head linning or was this an additional option,everything else on my wish list is pretty easy it's just people don't normaly list the roof linning in their classifieds,
    Thanks as always,
    Matt

    Standard on S-Line.

    As the Black Edition is an upgrade from S-Line, it is also standard on that trim level.

    Having said that, I don't think I have ever seen a Black Edition B7. Seen S-Lines with black optics though.

    mine is a 2006 170bhp s line and does not have the black roof lining as far as i am lead to believe it was an optional extra ,not sure about the black edition though .

    Some are listed as "black optics" and some as special editions? So Lee does your's have a black roof linning?
    When I have ordered black bits for my B6 they are listed as part of the " black optics" option.

    Black optics its in regards to no Chrome on windows, grill etc. It was an optional extra on all cars. My lining is a dark grey I think.

    kon
    One of my top priorities if I change is the dark head lining so I gather if I look for a "special" edition I should be on the right track?
    Thanks

    Thanks to all of you for your replys,and offers to buy your cars, i now know what i should be looking for should i decide to change, they do fetch strong money, will need to test a couple and also a B8, i feel that the B7 apart from some cosmetic differences is so similar to the B6 would i benifit anything or do you bypass the B7 and go for a B8?? oh what to do!
    Thanks again,
    Matt

    B7 or B8?? That much depends on your budget and wish list but boils down to high spec, low miles B7 versus lower spec and perhaps higher miles B8 for similar money.

    And if its a Phantom black 170 quattro AVANT S-line Sp Edn. you're after, I keep thinking about selling mine. Still young at 50k on an 07 and with loads of options including privacy glass to complete the stealth look.

    If I do change the decision will be purely on the car irrespective of model B7 or B8, it will be all about colour, spec and overall condition, my wife is a self employed accountant and most of her clients are in the motor trade so repairs are not an issue, the problem I find with higher Milliage cars is more problems with seat bases worn steering wheels and alike, mine is now on 127k and has had a wheel change and new seat foams all expensive repairs, I do keep my cars along time hence it needs to be right.

    there are two very easy ways to do this, one being carpet dye from a valet suppliers, used on carpets parcel shelves etc, or another method believe it or not is just good old couple cans of satin black or mat black misted over the headlining, ive done this many many times on all sorts of bits

    Sounds like a plan, the old lining is just sitting in the garage so i'll give it a go. What about the trims though, are they easy stained.

    If you want to do the plastic trims lightly key them first, I'd go the matt black can route as that will colour the plastic,

    MattyboyC, have you looked at the Seat Exeo Sport Tech? Basically a B7 A4 with great options, 142ps/170ps, leather nav, bose. all as standard and can pick up near new under 15k. Was looking at these for my old man a few weeks back and was impressed. Just an option if you not a badge snob.

    yes its the same as the head lining mate, a good 12 inch aways dusting it on will mean no streaky lines, but you will prib use 2 or 3 cans, i often do it on car carpets, hover the **** out of them then a can of matt black theny look like new but do have the paint smell for a 2 or 3 days

    For what it is worth, if you have a B6 do you really want to spend money on little more than some cosmetic changes?

    Personally go for a B8 instead. Theres so little in it between 6 and 7 I wouldn't bother.
