    Mind, if you want an easier solution and wanted to go a dull 'black' here's how I resolved the same problem on my SQ5 with a spray self etch primer coat:

    And we like it....

    New gearstick arrived, feels like really good quality. Got the knee pads to go with it. 20190914_171522-3024x1470.jpg

    Fitted the refurbed 18’s.. I was expecting to have to lower it further than the stock Sport suspension but I’m pleasantly surprised at how it sits.

    I didn’t connect the antenna, just too much trouble since I have no reception issue. And yes, there’s a cell phone still in the vehicle warning I since disabled because I always have the wireless carplay module plugged in.

    Not something i have done to the car, what i have done for it. Just took audi up on their offer of extending my warranty now the car is 3yrs old and out of warranty.

    Didn’t really want to pay £300 for the year, but then again if something breaks in the next 12months i will get my monies worth.

    Uninsured driver that's why he drove off. My insurance claim would have meant it had cost me more in the long run.

    Surely you would have notified your insurer anyway (as I believe you’re obliged to do) and they’ll still stuff you!

    Thought you are covered against uninsured drivers without it hitting your no claims?!? Do you have them protected as well?
