    Evening All,

    I have been thinking of change the rings on my car to black. Has any one done this and if so how and where did you get them from?

    There's a fair few people with black rings kicking about raywell designs or ebay for your black rings

    The rears are stuck on so peel off old, clean up and stick new ones on

    The Fronts are clip in but if you break them up in place they will come out piece by piece and save front grill removal, there does seem to be an issue with some of the ebay front rings being slightly smaller

    Thanks for the advise, never knew there was a difference in size between the models. Can any one recommend a seller?

    The ones where the tabs are parallel to the badge are for the B8 and the ones where the tabs are at an angle are for a B8.5. The B8.5 badge only goes on one way you see as it is not symetrical

    Mines a b8.5 @DeanoC but to me it looked like the rings went in either way.

    B8.5 has larger inner loops and do not have as a defined ridge. They are also not symetrical vertically and a slightly different size.

    B8 vinyl wrapped, b8.5 crappy fake carbon dip[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Got there in the end though. It just lifts it a bit from being black on black.[​IMG][​IMG]

    The rear black carbon rings go really well with your car.

    My link earlier in the thread was for the ones I used on my b8.5 black edition. Fit perfect.
