    Re: Carbon Fiber Shifter Ring problem

    So the vendor is sending me a THIRD ring to try. Should be here in 2 days. Maybe 3rd time is the charm?

    Is it just me or is Neidfaktor kind of slow in responding to emails? Perhaps I'm just spoiled by Audi-OEM's quick response...

    Neidfaktor is in Germany so the time difference is probably a part of it

    Still, would be nice when Audi-OEM starts selling for Neidfaktor.

    Looks like 3rd time is the charm. When I got the new ring, I immediately noticed the different construction:

    Any part that is not visible when installed do not have any CF overlay. Looks like those parts are just clear coated.

    They went in smoothly and all buttons function without any problems.

    Thank goodness this saga is finally drawing to a close!

    It only took two months I told them I'm not paying another $40 to ship the 2nd defective ring back; I've already done that once. If they want it, they will have to pay for return shipping.

    Do you ever drive your car or is it always in bits for mods?

    Alas, I have no patients, that's why I'm not a doctor

    Sure feels that way sometimes! But I'm almost done with mods. A few more carbon fiber bits and I'll be DONE forever!

    Re: Carbon Fiber Shifter Ring problem

    I am having the same issue so would like to take the Dremel approach before doing some returns & replace. Any advice on the Dremel approach and where to grind which faces/edges?
