Looks Good! Welcome back for sure!
I met a man with a dollar, we exchanged dollars and we still had a dollar. I met a man with an idea, we exchanged ideas and now we both have two ideas!!!

I thought your doors already looked like that :S
do you ever plan on a 670 version?
I made the cards a while back, but never installed them. It was tuff to find an upholsterer willing to do them at a reasonable price. One guy quoted me $350 just to do the shoulder bolster. I did the armrest and top half of the card (everything that didnt have stitching), and the upholsterer did the main card and bolster for $100.

And yes, even though nobody wants a 670 anymore (lol), i'm changing mine. As soon as the interior is done, i'll change over the exterior. All the parts are made now except for the grills.

Here are some pictures of the door card installed on the door. The last thing I need to do is get some new speaker grills from ebay.

So, i'm almost finished with the interior changeover (new OEM style center console, new center console armrest/glovebox, carbon fiber center console switch plate, carbon fiber stereo box, carbon fiber HVAC cover, new door cards, carbon fiber door sills), and the next step was the new door cards. They've been sitting in my shed for 8 months waiting to be fitted and covered. After searching far and wide for someone talented enough to do the stitchwork, I found a guy a few miles from my house (my regular guy Rafael is swamped and doesn't have time). I did the leather on the top half and armrest, and he did the shoulder bolster and main card (since they have stitching).
I prefit them 2 weeks ago, and got them back the other day. The first thing I did was assemble the 4 pieces, and install the door handle cable. I didnt want any screws showing, so I had to come up with a way to hide them. I mounted the card to the door under the shoulder bolster, and then 2 screws on the underside of the card with "L" brackets attached to the door that they screw into. The front of the card is held in place with 2 screws that are hidden under a cover plate that is velcro'd in place.
Once attached, the shoulder bolster is held on by 2 keyhole slots in the card that screw heds slip into and lock in place. The bolster is then held in place (so it cant slip back) with one screw that is covered with a snap-in cover.

I never said anyone claimed the parts were 100% accurate, but for the price they cost you would expect something at least a little closer to spec. I dont know why someone would go through all that trouble to make a 670 kit and then drop the ball as far as any accuracy. Its no more work to do it right, especially when you're starting from scratch like they did.
Yes, the owner complained about customer service and missing parts, but in a PM to me at the old forum he told me the parts and fitament were crap, not worth the money.

Digi was right the images were edited, he didn't claim that they were 100% accurate parts just that the images were edited. And that person with the 670 upgrade mainly complained about the customer service, not getting all of his parts.

You mean "MK" 6 right?

newer audis have the same ones

I think the older audi's are closer because they have the angle on them and grip, image on them looks outdated though. Older mazda's have the grip but they're flat as well no angle.
I think my A8 has some close looking ones switches.
