    New Custom Air Bag Cover

    True about the gain vs. loss. I'm in process of getting my seatbelts changed to red and everyone is saying "NO, don't do it. Too risky ....

    New Custom Air Bag Cover

    Good looking thing that is. I was considering doing same on my custom made steering wheel but got scared alcantara would not rip when airbag deployed. How did they prove to you this will rip in right places, allowing full and correct airbag working order? As for bad experience with custom made...

    Key case/body upgrading Review and instructions

    Great writeup and result. Thought of it myself but the idea of removing the blade from that fob to start up the car (mine's a non keyless entry/start), made me scrap that idea. Looking at it now, is there a space on the new fob blade holder for a immobiliser transponder? That would solve the...

    Wow. Hope you and Mrs are fine. Think it may well be a write off. You looking at bonnet, wing, lamp, bumper to replace + all other internal bits.

    A4 B8 alcantara interior mods

    I'm currently waiting for fabric samples and will be attempting full heafliner retrim and swap. It isn't going to be alcantara as it cost arm and a leg for the fabric, not to mention retrim. Got the second hand headliner and pillars so I can do them on the bench and simply swap, when ready. I...
