    I think I'm going to do the same to my center console. I did the same on my B5 even though I went carbon fiber trim. Blacked out looks much better.

    Iíve found a paint that is almost a perfect match for the prefacelift plastics, the same I used in these pictures. Landau Black from SEM. Pricey but worth it.

    Most c5ís Iíve owned I convert all the plastics to prefacelift anyways. I HATE soft touch.

    My rs6 has carbon. Not sure what Iíll do.

    If you're careful you can open up the shifter hole to fit the manual boot, if it's like the wood trim the little mounting holes should line right up. The chrome ring around the base gives you a little room for error too. I did that with a b5 and I'll do it to my c5 when I get around to it.

    Figured out the drivetrain noise Iíve been hearing. Looks like the front driveshaft joint has some play and the center support bearing will need replacing at some point. Not stuff that needs to be addressed right away but slightly annoying.

    Did do the timing belt/water pump tonight since it looks like it hasnít been done in over 100k



    Before anyone says anything about this picture, crank lock pin was in and cam lock bar had been taken out a few minutes prior.

    Did get a slight noise on startup, almost like a whirring noise. Fearing the worst, listened a bit more and it sounded like the timing belt was rubbing. Shut it off and realized I missed a tab on the upper right passenger timing cover. 🤦🏻*♂️

    I love easy fixes! Put the cover in the right place and no more noise.

    Also did an oil change with rotella tonight, swapped out the destroyed side view auto dim mirrors, and wired up the reverse lights.

    60,000 miles since swapped and it hasnít had a clutch switch or reverse switch the entire time. Ugh.

    Tomorrow Iíll pick up the longer bolts for the rs6 wheels and get them mounted. Car is almost ready for sale. Yayy

    Is this what you are using?

    I have CF in my RS6, but I bought a manual shifter bezel and boot from an A6. The A6 woodgrain now, so I'm debating if I just paint it black, or cut my CF piece to fit.

    Looks good. If I had space I would probably buy it lol. I'm such a fan of the red and it looks particularly good on those wheels.

    Looks good in pictures for sure. I wish the paint was better though.

    More little stuff today. Replaced a bad speaker in the passenger front door and replaced a bad window guide in there as well. Now the window rolls up without help

    Also fixed a buzzed in the sunroof area and straightened the steering wheel.


    Anyone want to buy this for $6900? Will be vinyl wrapping the roof this week too.

    A bit droney around 1700-2100 rpm but at freeway speeds i cruise at more like 2500-3000 rpm so itís fine there. Around town or back country roads I have to be selective about what gear Iím in if I want to avoid the drone

    Take it to Norway Can change you for mine 2.7TTQ with a boost problem...
    Have located a Norwegian forum and they say pretty much the same as here, so booked time again at a dealer, hoping they will figure it out without it getting too expensive

    Your flip looks great and you make everything look so easy! Good luck on your sale!

    Typically boost problems on a 2.7 are the throttle body boot. Have you checked yours?

    Yes!was a tear in it. changed it, then code P1555. for overboost intermittent showed up. Changed Maf, map, N75, spark plugs, egr-delete and O2 sensor. still feels the same. Pressure test by dealer, they said it was fine.
    Next in line is to check wastegate opening pressure.
