I just got done doing this mod (just the strips): http://www.b5one.com/howto/brushedalu.html I SHOULD ADD THAT THAT ISN'T MY CAR, JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA! You have to get the 1/4" strips. Very easy, just take your time and do it right! (30 minutes) I highly recomend this to anyone that wants to have that W8 look in the 1.8T! :thumbup: -God Bless!
