    Did not think it was a great fit but then it was over a year ago I fitted it and you can get them with rings already in them.

    The weave seems to really go with the OEM look.

    Can't really see from that photo, but have you added the silver rings as well?

    Mine is a custom job using a B6 adapter.

    The Symphony fits straight in and covers the whole area it sits in.

    Love that :hubbahubba:

    Should be much easier to fit than my ally rings that'll need glueing in (if I ever get round to it).

    I have the ally dash/door inserts though.

    I like these, but how do you fit them?
    Looks to to you need to remove the perspex cover from dash, this is very difficult without cracking?

    You need to take the whole cluster out and open it up from the back.
    Think there's a write-up on here somewhere with pics.

    I had my dash out to fit ally rings, you seperate the dial unit from the front
    perspex unit.
    I cant see how you fit these without removing the perspex.
    can you find how to guide?

    They are flexible so you just fold them a little to slide them in through one of the holes.

    You can bend it that much :unsure: and its genuine CF ?? Blimmy must be really thin, those photos make it look quite fat.

    Basically carbon is a sheet of cloth that is mixed with a type of resin but the type of resin used to make the facia is a flexible type.
