    anyone done this to their a4?
    ive got that silver coloured looking sort of carbon dash trim but passenger side has a few scratches so fancy wrapping it in dark grey carbon stuff, just wondered is it hard to do like curving round edges and ashtray gearstick etc?

    I done the grill surround on my old s3 never done the trim but know a few who have. Grille was piss easy you just need a heat gun or hair dryer to heat it as you put it on, becomes really flexible and stretchy then should be easy in my opinion mate

    I've done all the silver dash trim on mine and it cost £60 for a 1.5m x 3m roll (still have tons left over).

    One for you Paul26982, it's easy to do around the Quattro badge, just pop the badge out put the film over the whole panel then after put a slice in the film where the recess for the badge is then push the badge back in. Simple's.

    Wrapped the wood in mine with silver carbon wrap, got the wrap off ebay, cost £9 for enough for the whole interior. The whole job took two hours including removing and refitting all the trim. Take it all in the house and set to it with a stanley knife and a hair dryer

    Removed everything, quite easy to do. Just gotta take some 8mm bolts out here and there.
    There's a link some where on here how to remove trim.

    Ebay. There's loads of the stuff on there but a lot of cheap stuff also.
    3m di-noc obviously the best stuff but expensive.

    do you have a link to the stuff you bought krisavant and is it really sticky stuff or can you apply it and be able to lift it if you get it wrong sticking it and reapply it?

    I've bought loads in the past for past cars or mates cars etc but I like this one.
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/18089392966...eName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

    Gives a good 3d effect with a little shine and hard wearing.


    It's all easy to peal off if made mistake.
