    Cheers lads I have to say I'm loving it now

    I don't mind the grey dash trim, but as my design consultant JG has mentioned I might do the centre chrome as its the only bit left

    ****** air bag lights on now though, any ideas, I had the passenger air bag warning light unplugged and the trim off the passenger front ??

    Your interior looks awesome - getting very jealous now! I wrapped the trim in my A3 in silver carbon fiber but never thought about going for a colour...!

    Have you thought about the roof rails in the same colour?

    I hadn't realised that the S4 doesn't have the black head liner like the S line trim. If you're taking the roof bars off anyway, maybe change the head liner over at the same time? Just a thought...

    If you buy a cheap OBDII scanner on Amazon and download the Carista app, you'll be able reset the errors.

    Cheers buddy all the colour is really taking shape now I can't take all the credit though it was @xpoweruk that started it off with his red and @JG51 AUD that got me going on the yellow with mine :)

    I should be getting roof rails and window trim wrapped black next week it's been on my list for a long time

    Yeh it's a shame the head liner isn't black I didn't notice it to start with but the more Iv blacked up its really standing out, in front photos you can see the door pillars and roof stand out, might get round to it some day but it's not in my plans at present

    If you have an Android phone, you only need a bluetooth OBD scanner for £13, but if you have an iPhone, you need a wi-fi version.

    Here's the one I bought:

    The Carista app is free to download, then there's a one-off fee of £15 when you want to make your first mod, then it's free for every mod after that as the first purchase unlocks it.

    Here's a link to their site: http://www.caristaapp.com/ - It's great for keeping an eye on your car's health, but I've also used it to enable things like needle sweep on start up, tilt passenger wing mirror when reversing, oil temp monitor, cornering fog lights, daytime rear running lights, chirp on locking etc...

    Cheers bud, well I'm not great with this sort of stuff so I just bought the actual Carista one for iPhone, not the cheapest but in the grand scheme of things it's not much compared to what Iv spent on paint and vinyl :) :)

    Yeh I looked at a few of the others and they got good reviews, and a lot of them seem to work in the Carista forum but there was a few that didn't and I'm rubbish at sending stuff back so prob better this way

    I had the airbag warning light after my door chrome was painted as they removed the doors to do it. Once the error was reset, it never appeared again.

    Sounds like money well spent Chop, did you do needle sweep or do you already have it.

    They do seem to get some good reviews on here, by the sounds of things it's paid for it's self already.
    I love needle sweep, put it on my A4 SE, sat in the car all day switching it on and off just to see it working, small things/small minds and all that, lol!

    Cheers XP that centre console was a pain, think if it gets re-done I'll do it in place :)

    Yeh was well impressed when I first got the motor and seen the sweep for the first time

    Delighted that's all that you needed to do to get rid of the warning light - even better you got some added extras in the process ;-)

    Trims look really classy in the dark! The centre console trim is a nice touch.

    Yeah, was looking to see the interior trim. How close is the vinyl colour to your exterior trim?
