    Hi everyone iv got some carbon b pillars and have just looked at how to get them off and I thought it would be screws but they are rivets. The only rivets I can find are silver where can I get some black ones from? Audi?

    Rivets are covered up by the seals iirc, audi supply them silver aswell, if they show then paint them with some hammerite of the like, same difference.

    No point in getting black rivets, as they're covered by seals anyway, pointless exercise, but I understand the OCD :p

    Ha ha! I thought this but they are not 100% covered by the door seals.

    My Black Edition Gloss Black B Pillars were replaced under warranty, they used black rivets.

    Or else normal rivets, but painted them black ;)


    (not completely hidden by the trim, this is what you see when you open the door)
