I have the Carbon Sigma interior option but hate the grey plastic radio surround), So I have ordered all the rest of the plastic bits in CF from the German CF specialist (handbrake, centre console, ash tray cover, air vents, window switch surrounds, and last but not least that cheapo radio surround), will post pics when I have them to show, and report on fitting and quality.

The car, being new to me and never really seeing one for long before to examining it, I am surprised by all the "plastic" they left in the car with the "Enhanced leather" option.

Now if I were to order again, and if it were a US option, I would do EVERYTHING possible in leather!

My M6 with "full" leather.....has almost every inch of the car covered with high quality leather. It sort of surprised me that Audi doesn't stress the fact that their "Enhanced leather" is not FULL leather. I wish I paid more attention when ordering.....I might have spent extra for optional "FULL" leather!!!!!

I agree. Extended leather in Mercedes pretty much means everything is leather too.

Isn't that the truth - that's where they make all the money! It's easy to add $$$ to that Porsche MSRP.

Is it possible to order these from Audi, or are they just aftermarket?
Aftermarket, I don't think Audi do any of these bits. They are Carbon finished OEM Audi parts for a perfect fit.

I'm going to be getting the leather option that covers the centre console so getting these C.F. parts would depend on how i felt after i see it in person...having seen these parts though i would recommend them to anyone.

I'd like to ask if any R8 owners may have photos of their interior. My R8 has the basic interior i.e, leather and alcantara seats all in black and needs some glim.I've looked at the CF components from various site suggested to me on previous threads but need actual combination pictures if at all possible.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks conm
