    Just wondering if these would fit. The guy selling them says they are for a facelift B5, but something about them doesn't look right.

    Yes, they will fit. Facelift has more of an angle at the inner edge (closest to the window? than the pre-facelift units.

    From the look of the picture, these ARE facelift shells.

    You really do not want to know the price. These things are like rocking horse ***** to get hold of and don't they know it!!!. For a pair of these babies you are looking at about £175 (They are not exchange like some companies ask for) And they are not your cheap stick on wrap around CF, they are from a company called carbon works Berlin. They will make what ever ones you want...basically anything in Carbon ie B pillars covers etc. Here are a couple of better pics. If anyone is interested I could see what sort of price negotiation i could get.

    I'll be interested in B-pillar carbon covers, and I wonder, if they'll consider making the Euro S4 reap bumper black lip...

    I think they will make what ever you want. But their prices reflect that though. They do occasionally sell on Ebay motors...worth a look every now and then.

    For the people who showed interest in Carbon bits for their motors. Here is the reply I recieved when I asked what they could make and prices. They are not the cheapest, but their stuff looks top quality. I have ordered mirror covers for mine, so we could wait and see what they are like before anyone thought about anything for themselves

    Hello,
    We make all types of mirror case. 5 sets are no problem. We can sell for 330$ per set. We have sets for all Audi models. The Avant roof rail in carbon is no problem. You send me your roof rail and i make this in carbon. Or i buy a original roof rail and make this in carbon?

    regards,Jan

    LOL. They would probably make you one. Seems they have no limits, as long as ur pockets have no limits either.
