Re: Colored gauge faces...

    Guys, I hate to burst your buble...

    But, I was approached by this same proposition by Chad Clark when we were
out in Colorado for Pikes Peak.  He was going to have a guy who made a set for
his friend's Corrado make a set of "pearl" colored gauge faces for the 5ktq's.
Would have been like $80 or $100.  I was a little weary about how it would work
but I was still interested.  We needed a minimum order of like 5 or 6.

    It turns out that it could not be done because our Audis have backlit
gauges.  Many other european cars, like VW's, BMW's, and Porsches have gauges
that are lit from the front, so there is no problem there, but it cannot be
done on our cars.It may still be possible, but not by just putting a sticker
over the guage face.  The S4's gauges are integrated and desighned that way.
I just don't see how it's going to work.
