Just got back from local upholstery shop that does work on high end cars. Owner said he can do it in one day and leather and stitching will match perfectly. Was hard to quote an exact price since removing the sill piece can be difficult. Apparently Audi used plastic pins and then melts the end after attaching to the door frame. This explains why to get a replacement we have to order the whole door card. He said it would be no more than $500 to do the 2 from doors and could be less. Better than the $1800 for parts and $500 to swap them out! Only negative he does not have a free day until November!! Upholstery business must be good.

I dont know where you live at but E3 upholstery in south florida is going to do mine. I have to stop by there this weekend so he can check out the door but they can source the oem leather they said from Hyde's leather. I think I am just going to do the 2 front doors since that is what bugs me. The rear doors also have that sunshades in them so I am sure that would be pretty hard to do aftermarket. Anyways I'll let you know what they are going to charge me.

We are on the same page...see no need to do rears. Anxious to hear what E3 says about removing the piece. This was the only concern my guy had in doing the work. I am in SC just north of Hilton Head. Please keep me/us informed of your progress.

Do you know when pricing for the new options will be out and when you can place an order?
Dealers can order 2020's now. The two I spoke to have allocation slots already with delivery dates in late Oct that can still be modified. No actual pricing yet, should be in a couple weeks.

Are you guys pulling off the door panels yourselves and dropping them off to get wrapped? If so can you take some pics of anything that you come across that may be unusual or good to know while removing. Thanks

I'm having a local place in South Florida E3 Upholstery\Customs wrap mine in leather. Going there Sat. morning for him to look at the doors and give me an estimate. So I'll let everyone know what they will charge if anyone else is interested in getting it done in the area.

Getting all 4 doors top trim done by e3 for $1800 since he has to order a full hide from hyde's leather to do it you might as well get all 4 done if your going to do it. I have the black valcona btw.

Will it have stitching to match the dash and oem door?
