Default Anyone know where I can go to customize my 1998 Audi A8?

I just got an already customized or modded 98 A8, but there are a few more things I would like to do to it. Examples may be crome mirrors or door handles, etc. Anyone know where I can get things like this done to my ride?

Don't get chrome door handles. That will look stupid. Don't ruin what Audi has done, any mods should be tasteful.

So what kind of mods do you suggest? I also wanted to change the interior wood trim into brushed aluminum or gun metal type material. Any ideas are appreciated.

Out of curiosity, what kinds of mods did you buy the car with? Do you have pics?

You can find the Chrome S-type-like mirror covers on ebay
http://motors.search.ebay.com/a8_Mir...3649QQsbrsrtZd

You might also want:

And, check out the "vendors" list, along teh right-hand side of the page. Click on the link for Mattman enterprises and order yourself a European-style German plate for your ride. If you can't think of anythig, or, if you need a plain-language explaination of how to make your plate look authentic (I lived in Europe for, like, 15+ years), PM me (there's a PM icon at the bottom of everybody's posts, unless they have disabled PM's for their AF account) and I'll run it down, for you...

p.s., I'm glad you took some of my advice. See, I ain't a hateR... Well, not MUCH, anyway.

Hi,

look at >>>Here<<<

I firmly believe someone should be prosecuted for the D2-D3 grille swap, until now I thought VH was the only one who specialized in this unholy type of conversion with W140-W220 [:'(]

It's a rainy day, so I decided to survey the CarDomain pages for modded A8s, mostly out of what-are-people-smokin-these-days kind of curiosity.

Check out this....uhh...."Gangsta Grillz's Audi A8: "Sexy Bitch" http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2253823 I understand the owner is finishing up residency at UPenn in opthalmology.

In any case, its quite tasteful when compared to this thing http://www.cardomain.com/ride/489996
I believe we have discussed it already, but I feel compelled to bring this disaster up again. It's like watching a train wreck in extremely slow motion ::sigh:: and its beyond salvage.


The wing on this one is kinda cute, makes it look like an early 1990s Audi 80 from far away. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/243090
