    On both sides of my A3 sportback the pillars have started to peel (see photo)

    To say this looks bad is probably an understatement! Is there anythin I can do to make it look better? Should I peel it all off and hope it looks better?

    Maybe because of the dirty rain last night lol....I am joking. You can wrap it in gloss black or buy a new gloss black pillar which is what I am gonna do soon. This is the chance for you to upgrade for a better looking pillar :)

    Sand it all off and cover it with gloss black vinyl, it's what I've done to mine and looks brill.

    Yep there's a cover at the bottom covering the 2 screws, pry the cover from the bottom and it should come off then just undo the two screws and the piller cover will come off.

    Wrap wrap wrap....
    make sure you use a cast vinyl film, and use heat to apply around contours!
    will look first class, n there are some really good products to use.

    Wrap look quite decent but I wash my car 2-3 times a months so I prefer to go for actual glossy black 1.
