    Thought i'd give this a bump. Any news?
    We are looking into having S3 front and rear bumpers, front splitter & front wide arch wings done in carbon. I'll keep you posted.

    My friend's company does a lot of carbon bits over on the TT Forum and having seen the process etc it's a very expensive thing to do... Especially if its genuine carbon!

    The first mould that is then used for future pieces can be anything up to and over £1000 in R&D.

    I imagine that anything that goes ahead would usually be the same. He is currently working on some new bits but I know that there has to be a "serious" amount of demand to even warrant getting a specific part made up!

    His company is called CarbonWurkz - Carbonwurks

    Couple of threads:

    Main thread - The Audi TT Forum :: View topic - Audi TT MK2 Carbon Mirror's and Mirror stalks

    Another thread - The Audi TT Forum :: View topic - Anyone bought these carbon mirrors???

    If he gets enough interest / orders for certain parts then i'm pretty sure he would be quite keen to get them into development for you guys!

    I'm quite partial to some Carbon B-Pillars actually.
