Default Interior Inlays

Just bought an A7, so i'm new to the Audi world. I want to replace my interior inlays. Where is the best place to buy a set?

On a side note, when I googled "Audi forums", there were a few that popped up. Is there one forum that is considered the largest? (hopefully i get unbiased responses)

Kamek,

First, welcome to the A7 club. Second, concerning your side note, I'm not sure which forum is the largest but Audi World is by far the busiest IMO. I frequent three other forums and a couple can go for days at a time without a post in the A7 thread. I'm sorry that I can't help with your inlay question but I'm sure someone will come up on the net and give you guidance. There's also a marketplace tab where vendors post their wares. I'm going to make the logical assumption that you bought your A7 used?

Here's a couple of listing from the AW Marketplace. It's at the top of the page in the red banner. IDK if the price are good - do some research. There are two types of dash inlays - heads up and no heads up display.

This set is sold but you can look at the pictures to see where the clips are

Another place to check would be on eBay - good luck.

Thanks. I did check ebay and the forums, but not much for sale. Will have to keep an eye out. Thought there might be a vendor that offers them.

I have the dark walnut inlays. Looking for aluminum, carbon, or the piano black stripes (I think that's what they are called)

You can find used sets of aluminum or wood trim, so keep looking. It's pretty rare to find used carbon or black striped. I bought my matte fine ash inlays on ebay for ~600.

I'm curious, did you guys replace the inlays yourself or did you take them to a professional for removal/installation?

I did mine myself, with the help of the repair manual. It's a full day job, easily 8+ hours unless you're an expert or have a buddy helping.
