    I had some small pieces of Carbon Fibre lying around so I decided to wrap my alloy centre caps! Something different, but I think they look good! :) uploadfromtaptalk1406914307695.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1406914318264.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1406914331508.jpg

    I think that looks really cool actually. May steal your idea at some point!! Don't worry about the wheels, my car hasn't been washed in a month... doesn't help that one of my wheels is currently a space save as I wait for a replacement tyre from a flat!

    I have butcher's best sausage fingers! But there's a cheat's way... there are 4 little clip things holding the Audi rings on, so give them a tap and the rings come off. Plain sailing from there!

    Hi Shaun, I have stolen your idea but I'm struggling to get the rings back in as the wrap cause's a gap so the rings don't seem to clip in properly. Any tips on how u managed it please mate

    Hey Mate,

    As far as I can remember I used a small Draper tool I had in the garage to punch the holes. You could try a needle maybe? .. I never seen you were looking for some, I have four genuine centre caps wrapped and all which I am not using!lol
