    I'm not sure what the part is called, but I'd like to wrap the big handles on the lower centre console in a matte carbon fibre.

    Does anyone have any links to somewhere that can do this to a high standard.

    Also, what is that part called?

    You could trip them in leather? Cheaper than replacing and it is an audi option in the extended leather pack, and soon to be found on the RS3

    Really? Sounds interesting. How do I go about doing this, take it to Audi or buy one already covered?

    No it will be shocking money from audi, plenty of good re-trim guys around and something as small as those triangles could be removed and posted to them! Then posted back and fitted! Of course you'd then have your choice of leather colour? and stitching colour? What colour is your car?

    Lava grey. I would most likely go for white contrast stitching to match the stitching that will be on the handbrake cover I need, plus the steering wheel.

    Thanks for the advice anyway, I'll look into a leather re-trim then :)
