    I want to replace the brushed aluminium trim in my sportback for the piano black trim. Is eBay my best bet or is it a reasonable price from Audi?

    If anyone fancies a change drop me a pm :)

    Odd to hear somebody preferring piano over alum. If i has a SB I'd have swapped with you LOL. I'm sure you will find a few takers.

    Not that odd to me - I have a 3dr with brushed alu and would contemplate swapping for piano black. Not 100% certain tho cos my old car had piano so maybe different is good? Dunno but piano def looks better I think

    even though i do like the wood i would like to do something like that carbon in mine to go along with my red/black but i suffer from sausage fingers :| do you have to remove all the pieces of trim you want to wrap or can you do it in situe?

    Great job

    Just out of interest how much did you use? I'm ordering some soon and don't want to go overboard.
