My white R8 came with oxygen silver side blades and I want to switch them to Carbon Fiber. Anyone knows what the dealers are charging for these??

~ $4K - $4.2K. I have seen OEM CF discounts at some Audi dealerships, <$4K at a few sites.

I just took delivery of my car so the blades are brand new. I paid $1000 as option but the dealer charges about $2K. Make me a reasonable offer.

Anyone know what is a fair price to pay for them, installed? This might be a dumb question, Audi told me they can get me the CF side blade(they are made here, I am not an experts on CF, will the side blades I get from here match the interior CF trim from the factory?

I got my "factory" CF blades from Audi through the dealership. I paid the "catalog" price (it was around $4k) and my dealer did the installation at no charge. The "Audi" supplied blades came wrapped in cloth bags and were boxed with Audi logos all over the bags and boxes. I noted that they were actually fabricated by Fischer in Austria (same company that makes skis). They look great.

Not sure if they are made in the US but only take the dealer 2 days to get them and they quoted me 2-3 hrs labor for installation.

$4K? I was quoted around $2.5K, but to be confirm.... pls do not tell me that is just one side. But that would make any sense to give e a price for one piece... they told me they get them out f LA... did you have the blade ship directly to you?

Do u mind sharing the cost info? I am considering it, but do not want to pay a fortune for it.

What color is your R8?
Did the CF pattern matched well between all the pieces?
