    hmm i like them, looks like a good job if they have been wrapped, suppose it would be a nice subtle mod cost or source?

    They look good. Would have to see them fitted though, any chance?

    They were on ebay.de but the listing ended early at 105euros. it turns out they were done using a water transfer then coated in some type of protective gloss. i think the process is like that of the old sticker kits that you got with your tamiya rc car, or di cast model but on a bigger scale and the carbon film wraps round easily when wet. anyone know more about this?

    i suppos you could have a couple of expensive practice runs, but then once you got it down its a nice little way to earn cash and beers off of mates

    Looks good from the pictures but I wonder how nice it would go with the car. My mate has some on his R32 and that matches his bonnect ok but i'm between minds for the Audi. Hopefully they don't end up looking OTT.

    Can't see why they'd look OTT. I always liked the carbon trim in my S4.

    I like them. Not enough to change from my brushed metal trims but would seriously look at this if I had the piano black/wood effect inlays.

    I've often thought the B pillars would look good covered in this stuff.

    I must be getting old or something as I like the Audi to seem more exec. On the other hand I would like to see them in the car as they may look good! As I said, i'm between minds myself >.<

    Do you have any pictures of yours? I'd like to see how they look :)

    Nah mate piano black will cost the earth, however the wooden effect ones are dirt cheap. & do the same job.

    Yeah I'd agree no worse than others, I reckon if done properly they'd be good.

    When TAC gets me the kit then I will mate.

    Yeah think thats a site I looked at, seems fairly straight forward tbh, like painting a car & lacquering huh, elbow grease is all thats needed.
