@TimWills28 ahh I see! Looks really nice man. I really like the nice blend all the way around it's not a jump in tint.

Do you not get any unwanted attention from the police?

And sorry about the very late reply haha

Exactly what I was going for, which meant not too dark on the rears...

Haven't had any attention from police tbh long may it continue

Cheers probably never to be honest, car being silver doesn't really show up that much as opposed to black

I think its more that its out of balance as your painted the window trim matching chrome grill Black, so the window trims look uber odd.

Unless you're actually looking for it, I don't see it...not on my to do list.

Don't do it Tim, the chrome looks so much better on your colour car than the black rubber trim would. Just saying!

Did cross my mind when I first got it when i de chromed the grill, but as I left the front and rear badge chrome, I thought I'd leave the window trim as you can see it doesn't stand out that bad

It totally does stand out :) ruins it to be honest, but hey ho each to their own

Who has black rubber trim? does that exist? or is that just on the poverty spec cars?

Hi Mate, fitted the cruise control system to my 8V recently but can't seem to code it in with VCDS. Looked at your guide on youtube but the process you use isn't available as the button is greyed out. Any suggestions?

Cannot be done with VCDS mate .. final part needs audi authorised dealer like @DJAlix to -activate with different program...

Installation is quite straight forward but the parts need to be all correct and coded to the car properly...

Give him a message... VAGCARCODING

Cruise control cannot be coded via VCDS and alike on MQB vehicles, it has to be activated via the official VW Group service and diagnostic application via unique activation code, number and PIN number..... unique to the serial number of the parts used during the install. If you have used second hand parts then you will never be able to activate them as all the “codes” are single use.
