    eBay, they are the OEM B8.5 pedals. There are multiple sellers, they get them directly from Audi in Germany. Here's an example:

    ... and here's a better shot of them. They are easy to install, just watch out installing the dead pedal, the bracket is sharp, I got a nasty cut pressing against it.

    Mops, it looks like you take some nice shots, any tips?!
    Not really. Sounds like you have a pretty good handle on it I shoot RAW, try and keep at ISO 100, and leave it in manual. I just started first of this year. I shoot with 60D, 24-105L, 10-22, 50mm f/1.4 and just grabbed the 70-200 f/2.8. Practice, practice, practice is best. And make sure you are taking full advantage of Lr3. Very nice build you have going, btw!

    dont shoot such shallow aperture, you lose most of the car that way. also, shoot with room to give around the subject, its easier to crop out dead space later, but you dont get stuck with not enough backdrop in the photo. invest in a Circular Polarizer, it will help to reduce the reflections and glare off of the car so you get those rich darks. Aside from that, good start dude and nice car

    Harsher, mainly due to dropping down to 30 series. When under-inflated at 35psi, it's almost the same, but when inflated to 40psi, I cringe a little when hitting some bumps, though its really not that bad and the wheels are holding up to the bumps. The alignment shop I went to said running them at 35psi will increase the chance of denting the rims when hitting a pothole since the tire will compress at a single point and the road will come in contact with the wheel, makes sense, so I'm running them at 40psi.

    Just got a surprise in my mailbox today from deutschland, I went ahead and popped it in

    Old one, you can see how its peeling:

    Installed, I love the look:

    Its an OEM Part from BKS Tuning, plug and play. Easy to install, the AC controls popped out using my finger in one the larger holes on the bottom, pulling outward. The shift boot just needs a simple pry tool, and the MMI controls pop out by pulling up swiftly from the area exposed by pulling up the shift boot, pulling up from the part closest to the armrest. Using a narrow pry tool, you push up on the wire clip's latch to pull out the connector, then push the button up firmly to pop it out. Push the new button in, re-install the connector, push the MMI controls back in, the AC controls, and finally the shift boot.

    Day Time Shot:
