Looking for a little more interior PIZAZZ!

    As the title says really, just looking for a few little touches to really set off the cabin in my Avant.
    Its already a very nice place to be but just think it needs something extra.

    A few touches of silver trim here and there set it off nicely and the ambient lighting in the door handles and interior light cluster make a nice change, the interior LED bulbs make for a more practical upgrade but still not quite there.

    Im thinking the addition of an A3 s line FBSW, the nice stainless pedals and some gloss black interior trim would make a nice classy upgrade.

    Whats everyones thoughts or personal interior upgrades you've done to your B7s. Extra points for piccys!

    I find the oem b7 interiors to be a tad plain really , the variable trim colors and finishes help give things a boost.
    I think all you could do would be go with rs4 pedal covers , a fbsw and maybe carbon trims to give a different overall look but still oem based.
    You can get leather arm rests aswell which can look nice.
    They would be the easy ones, recaro's but that's a different subject.

    Yep i agree there, its difficult to to get the balance just right before it starts to get chavvy imo.

    Recaros are an itch that i think needs scratching, finding the right set at the right price is another thing.

    I quite like the piano black trim, classy and subtle, as nice as the carbon is, its not my bag - baby....

    Biggest change would be recaro's to be honest, DTM ones in Alcantara would be nice.
    Piano black attracts dust and marks and tends to look mucky very easily from previous experience.

    FBSW would make a big change, would make it look a bit newer.

    I find the interiors of the B7 quite plain, staid and a bit boring, so after looking at a Q2 and seeing a B7 done on here, I painted my door, dash and centre console trims bright red.
    Makes a real difference but I'm not 100% happy with them as they're not glossy enough.
    I'm now collecting more trims to paint in my body colour - Phantom Black - and these will be done by a pro and lacquered to a very high gloss.

    TBH, I'm not a fan of the carbon fibre look, but hey, each to their own.

    Red footwell LEDs would look nice on your B7.

    Yes, as red isn’t too distracting when driving at night.

    I can imagine, done tastefully, it would look smart, would also match the rest of my oem ambient lighting

    I rather like the tan recaros and matching "exclusive" door cards but could be a colour clash with a red car maybe...

    Recaros are definitely the way forward though, the smooth leather finish too or maybe the comfort RS4 ones with white piping/stitching.

    Hmmmm leather.......

    Excuse the mess, shes long overdue a good going over!

    I bought a mirror switch of ebay and simply pulled off my knob....and swapped it over.

    You can't seem to be able to buy the silver finished in the 4 position variant

    Red seat belts in the back too?
    Can you tell me where they came from, please?
    I think I like those!
