      maybe someone will organize a huge tri-state gtg someday...(although we are technically in the same state)

      I bought some plain black trim and wrapped it in 3M DiNoc Carbon Fiber vinyl. Today it wasn't 10 below so I finally was able to install it.









      I like it much better than the textured aluminum stuff that was in it.

      It was on a different forum but it could have been the same person.

      Hi! I've been reading you for a while, but this is my first post
      My 3 door TDI A3 is five years old, but I like to look after it with some mods from time to time. Here are the pics of the last one: new DSG knob, leather console extenders (triangles, I don't know how you call it) and brake hand from S3. Hope you like it :-)

      Day I bought it (March, 2006):



      A week ago:

      Since the temp is in *C I am guessing that he is maybe from europe? Or Canada? They are probably slightly different.

      I like those climate control knobs as well.

      replaced the 20amp fuses for all of the electrical sockets...the ones in the front arm rest console stopped working randomly and I sorta got lost in Boston for a few minutes...but they're good now! Forge atmospheric spacer and 6000K HID kit coming this week!

      Hi everybody! Those extenders were made by tapestry maker here in Madrid. Last friday I gave to him the front doors armrests to do the same job. I will post pictures for you as soon as I get them.

      This is the restyling climate unit from 2010, but few days ago we found out that it doesn't work properly: it doesn't activate the AC compressor when needed. I had to put back the good old one

      I'm glad you like it

      Small list of things I did:
      Big turbo (Garret 1852) + Milltek downpipe + Stage 3 ECU tuning
      Bilstein Sprint (B8) shocks + H&R springs
      RS6 steering wheel
      3.2 front brake kit (350x30mm)...

      On the outside it looks strictly stock, I like it this way.

      Some pictures:
