Hey fellas! I'm searching high and low for a set of OEM carbon fiber trim for my left hand drive D2 S8. If anyone knows of a set I would be eternally grateful!!

I'm not aware of them ever making carbon trim for the D2?  Certainly never seen it on a right hand drive car, which all feature wood trim.

Some people have had their wood trim wrapped, I believe.

OEM carbon fiber trim was indeed an option on euro model D2's, however it was rarely selected on the order sheet as I believe it was (roughly) a $2200 option.

Yes, wrapping my stock wood trim is an option but I'd rather not go that route.

Why not?
You could always buy a spare set of trims and wrap them then swap, keeping the originals in case you want to restore the car to original spec.

No use to you, but I have a spare set of RH trims that another D2 owner is likely to have from me after Xmas to do exactly that.

I'm just not a fan of aftermarket wrapped trim....even when its done correctly/high quality. I prefer the old school OEM audi carbon weave and fit/finish.
