      Mirrors painted to match wheel color. Yeah, I know. Xenons would look better but they weigh more - Besides, I turned off the DayTime Runnings Lights anyway.

      That's very clean. Nice car.

      I didn't realize they were doing the Recaro shell seats in that car. I know there's an A1-spec shell that's been used, but that looks like the really expensive shell that's in the TT RS and R8.

      I ordered the CS Seats from a Recaro Distributor in the States and picked-up the consoles for them in Germany. Shell Seats are available through Audi by special order but I believe they are not a stand-alone option.

      I got them from TH Motorsports in Illinois. I paid $2600 for the pair (I was given a $50 discount for having to wait for one of the seats) and shipping was free to my Uncle's house in Phoenix.

      European Spec. cars now have a Passenger Seat Sensor for the Airbag System but simply installing a 27 Ohm resistor* in place of the Sensor kept the system functioning. The Passenger Airbag will now deploy if the seat is empty but that doesn't bother me - if I want to make the effort, I can open the glovebox and turn-off the Airbag with the Car Key.
      US cars have a different Sensor but an authorised Recaro installation shop should know how to circumvent this.

      * I chose 27 Ohms because this resistance represents 50Kg - the weight of my Wife.
