    Just a small update I have been planning for a while.
    Always wanted MFSW and grab handles trimmed in leather to match the rest of the interior.
    So with the help of a few people on here I got what I needed for the MFSW on eBay.
    This is what I ended up with.

    And a big thanks goes to N8(Kowalski details) for doing a great job of trimming my grab handles. Can't recommend him enough :)
    What I wanted was white stitching with nappa leather to keep everything matching.

    And finally updated the vent to silver surrounds.

    thats all for now folks

    Did you have to remove the air-con control unit to get to the bolts that hold the grab handles in place? I've tried to replace mine without any luck so far :(

    Also, N8, what's the damage for re-covering the handles? :)

    No you dont have to remove the air con.
    Just need to remove the trim around the gearknob, then pull out the ashtray. Then there is a bolt at the back of the grab handle on each side.
    Also need to remove the bolt which attaches it to the main dash board which is through the hole in the handle, which is underneath
    Hope that Helps a little bit

    Very nice indeed! N8 please could you PM me a estimate in red stitch. Would I send you my grab handles or do you send the finished item? Is it just glued in place? Thanks.

    Did you have to do anything extra to make the MFSW work?

    I bought a used steering ECU from eBay which was already coded.
    And an airbag wiring harness from Audi. Other than that swapped wheel and it was working

    How did you undo the bolts right at the back under the air-con unit? I think they are 8mm, but just couldn't get the right angle to undo them. What did you use exactly to undo them?
