    Like a lot of other A4's, the small black triangular exterior C pillar trim has bubbles and flaked paint. I plan to repair these in situ due to reading wildly varying posts on ease of removal. I intend to paint them and was wondering how people prepped them? Did you find them easy to sand back? What did you use?

    Thanks

    I got a replacement rear bumper off the bay and it came in enough bubble wrap to wrap an entire car, I've kept it for months waiting for it to come in handy and finally it has haha
