    Hi guys

    Well after a lot of searching and numerous conversations I eventually found a company that would produce the full replacement carbon fibre B-pillars and the triangles on the rear doors for me.

    Sorry about the pictures... Iphone quality unfortunately.

    Here they are on my A4 DTM...

    Thanks. They're from a company I used abroad that does all of the carbon parts for the KTM X-Bow.

    No these are full replacement parts, so unbolt yours and bolt these on :) The B-Pillars were fine but the rear door triangles require the doors all but stripping down to get to one bolt 😳

    As above Jake. Didn't take long, say 2 hours for everything. You just need to remove the door frames for one bolt...

    This company has been very good to be honest and the quality is second to none and put it this way the price is much more appealing than the likes of OSIR. They are also willing to produce other parts depending on interest 😃

    I can have this discussion with them... It all depends on numbers really as these were one-offs. I'm sure they'd be happy to produce more.

    Ok I'll contact the company and see what they can offer with a group buy. If there are any other things people can think of, they are quite willing to have a go at. Think they're looking at carbon lower door blades at the moment... 😝

    Sorry, posted before refreshing to see DuncVolvoTurbo's post and your reply.

    Thank god, me and organisation don't go well together haha. Would also raise a fair bit of interest with us b6 lot as they're the same (... well I'm etleast 90% sure they are anyway).

    Really nice, Not sure I like the rear triangle but each to there own.

    Thou I wish the DTMs came out with a carbon fibre rear diffuser but having said that no doubt on mine it would get so damaged from stone chips stuff flinging onto it.I know there is a company in the US that supplies this. But hard to tell by the quality from a picture.

    To be honest the rear triangle is my favourite and most wanted part as mine has some form of bubbling, would obviously need both though to match it up.

    i got

    b pillar
    rear door triangles
    and rear boot strip

    for my DTM last year from www.argon-creative.com they are all full replacement parts ( they dont show them on the website as replacement parts you have to email them.)

    i would recommend them to anyone.

    iv still got the door triangles sitting on the side as im waiting for some warm weather to fit them lol.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Just to keep you informed, the company are keen to take requests to manufacture items, so please let me know if there is anything you can think of so I can discuss it with them.

    I am in discussions regarding group buys... Watch this space.
