    at the risk of being told off for starting a selfish thread lol ;~)

    iv started spending a few quid on my a4, but because its all on exterior mods i dont get to see the benefits when i am driving lol

    so i would like to start on the interior, eg sline steering wheel, rs4 pedals, recaros. and other little tastefull trims out of newer model a4s. such as the chrome sterio dials i noticed on oanother thread.

    so any suggestions? <br>what fits best and wheres the best place to source it from? id like to try and stay oem unless its a tastefull aftermarket mod.

    my first question is about the sline multi function steering wheel? if fitted to an older a4 like mine (04), are the multi functions compatable, or would they just be there for decoration. lol

    RS4 pedals are a popular mod, they're a straight swap (although awkward!) - try ebay.de for the best prices.

    Chrome ringed buttons are generally from a B7 - I'm not sure on compatability between models.

    An MFSW will work on your car, although you might need a new steering wheel slip ring depending what your has already, and it will require coding which is no biggie. How about just setting an S-Line badge into your existing 3 spoke wheel? There's a thread on that somewhere.

    Also, you can freshen the interior trim with 3M Di-Noc film:

    3m di noc | eBay

    Available in either carbon or silver aluminium.

    And nobody "told you off" did they?

    Keep looking on ebay i got a full set of RS4 pedals with foot rest for £50 - bargain.... as for other interior have you done the front and rear ambient lighting, cheap and effective mod, RND-E DVD Nav smartens up the front dash, upgradinging all your interior bulbs to led makes a big difference and then your on to footwell lights and puddle lights, these look really good with nice bright smd/led bulbs

    This is my unfinished thread on puddle/footwell lights which might help you:

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a4-a4-...180-puddle-light-footwell-light-retrofit.html

    RNS-e is the double din sat nav unit, yes it will play DVD's.

    It wasn't a specific thread, it was just a picture in another thread I think. I'd be unlikely to find it again, but it was someone from this forum I think so they might be able to help. It looked good, I'd not have suggested it if it looked tacky :)

    DIY: B6 A4 - Interior LED Lighting

    Check your bulbs with the sizes as im sure 1 or 2 were different on mine,

    What's the interior trim options on the A4?
    So far I've seen:
    Piano Black (on mine)
    Wood
    Fish scale metal
    Carbon (from S4)
    Brushed aluminium (was this only oem in B7's?)

    Any others? I like the brushed aluminium the most, but not seen any for sale at a price that I'd consider.

    My piano black actually came 'carbon' wrapped. Just a 2D print of carbon, nothing that fancy but looks ok. Wouldn't mind doing a deal with someone to swap for aluminium trim.
