    There's a few buttons on the inside of my S3 that have worn quite badly. I've seen this on quite a few, so it got me wondering there must be a market for replacement buttons, does anyone know of any one that does them?
    I know obviously audi would be the first place to try but I can see me paying through the nose for that sort of thing.

    Call them Faz - they hold a lot more parts than advertised on their site. However I'm guessing it's not a popular part and probably made by another manufacturer - might be worth while finding out whom? Don't quote me though - I may be totally wrong!

    oh and that's a complete joke for the button from Audi's point of view.

    From Halfords dooood,i practised quite a bit first....as if you put it on too thick, it dried glossy... and rough..... its not perfect....but its saved me buying a new climate controller... and is bearly noticeable....

    Hi,

    Cd Marker pen works in the daytime, but just been out in mine for first time in the dark, since I used a CD pen on my climate control at the weekend. I can say, it does not look great at night. the '-' buttons are surrounded by a slightly dimmer red splodge now, rather than just one large splodge...

    I'll try to get a small tin of matt black paint tomorrow and will report back.

    Cheers,

    Only word I could think of to describe. Thanks for the sympathy buddy!!:moa:

    Still not the most expensive problem I've got as I went for a spin with Dave_B yesterday, and it's going to cost me money as I now need a remap... Doh!!

    Cheers,
