Really????????

I just assumed they would be replacement items. The TT vents just pull out, thought these would be the same.

I think BigDeuce (remember him?) did it - might be pics in his gallery. I think they just push over the top - whether the factory fitted ones do or not I don't know.

The guy at Audi I asked about this just said they were easy to fit and full instruction came with them.

HOWEVER at present you can only get white ones aftermarket. The other colours are all part of the vent assembly and although clearly show as a seperate part in different colours on Etka they are not available seperatley. So if you damage one them it's going to be expensive.

We will have to either wait for different colours to be released or paint / Vinyl the ones you have.

I have the competition line interior with the white vents - they look factory fitted rather than stick on and I am very pleased with the way they look.

We have the titanium grey ones fitted to match the grey interior. They look very nice, ill get some pics.
They look like clear plastic and painted from behind. If that makes any sense.

Yes it does make sense i was looking at the red ones saturday in the Bristol flagship dealers not sure about the red ones now the plastic coating makes it look a bit creamy to my eyes , still looking for pictures of the aluminum ones now.
Yes some pictures would be nice.
Cheers.

I've just ordered my s-line with high gloss black, I didn't know how the aluminum ones would look. Does anyone have any photos, I'm tempted to change before my build if they look good! Thanks

I have the gloss black vents. I find they reflect on the door glass where the mirrors are. Bit of a distraction in the right conditions. The shinier they are the worse the reflection i guess.

I never specified anything and I got gloss black, is that not standard?

I am also wondering about the aluminium ones, but need to see them first.
