    My a3 has got a cream roof lining and pillars which I'm not to keen on, thinking about maybe getting a black roof lining and pillars but just worried about how hard these are gona be to fit. Does anyone know if their hard to fit? Or how to do it?

    Not that hard mate,i work at a bodyshop the replacement is easy but i would advise you take get the front screen taken out to get the old out and the new one in without damage,the rear with the tailgate appature i am sure is too narrow and you would have to arch it to get it through

    From memory of other 3drs cars like astra's etc i thought it would be too narrow,maybe wrong but some cars you would have to just about bend the corners double to get them through

    how do you remove them? how exactly are they attched to the roof? and how do you remove the pillars? i know the middle ( B pillar ) has a air bag built in.
