    Hi after my thread about my drivers armrest starting to crack I have decided to get it fixed then trim over it with alcantara material.


    One problem though, as I live in the inverness(north of scotland) area and there doesn't seem to be any car trimmers nearby I was just asking if anyone knew where I could get this done and possible price.?
    Thanks Corey

    Ps already put this in the Scotland forum

    I did do a search for Inverness but couldn't find any lol.
    Just an idea but would a furniture upholster not be able to do it?
    Might be easier to get one closer to u :)

    Just start with upholsters Inverness up to u direction and phone them and ask lol.
    Doesn't matter if its for the car or ur living room I'm sure they will be able to.
    Better to find some pics and show them.

    Does anyone know what this piece is actually called? i've been searching for one on ebay but want to narrow down my search rather than just writing "door trim audi a3"
