    Has anyone had any success in removing the chrome trim around the windows? IMO it looks better black, what do you all think?

    if you remove it you will need to buy the black weather seals to replace the ones that are attached to the chrome surrounds

    I've always found this funny, because people who have chrome trim want to get rid of it and people who don't, want it!

    I don't and I want (£1500 quid from audi to have chrome fitted,parts £450 and just over a grand for labour) don't know how much the other way round. If only we could swap somehow! But I think its just to much bother to do and cost.

    Audi's just don't need the sort of cheap tat other manufacturers have to resort to.

    Thats the thing Andymac, a lot of cars these days don't have it. If you go back 20 years then yes most cars did have it, but I think a lot of the modern cars it's just plain black. On top of that I like the way it goes with the roof rails on my car

    :iagree: I also think it breaks the colour up, I have a black A4 and if it had black surrounds I think that would be way to much imo.

    Depends on the colour of the car. Looks good on our Dolphin Grey car and also on a lot of dark colours. Not so good on a silver motor.

    My Dad had 3 of those. MUCH nicer inside than a standard Allegro. I remember a review in one of the car magazines around 1990. The put an Allegro VP up against an Orion 1600E and a Belmont CD. The Allegro came 2nd to the Orion!

    It's called a difference of opinion Andy.
