everyone to their own, but I see a lot of A2's and the red leather interior whilst being very nice looks too much when the seat, door card, steering wheel, gear level gaiter and the hand brake grip are all also red - it simple looks to be a sea of red.
I know Audi tried to colour co-ordinate the interior, and to a degree I get that, and it looks good, but with it all there it is simply too much red.
Personally I would omit the steering wheel and leave it black leather. The rest in red co-ordinates well and does not look too much.

Now ask my wife and she says the red looks like a 'tarts budwar' (that is certainly not the correct spelling :)) so it is everyone's personal opinion regarding what looks good / too much / over the top / tarty

cheers,
Paul
Yes I see where your coming from my dad said that leave the steering wheel etc black leather as if you do it all red it’s too much in your face:) I think I will keep it as is as it’s nice that way not over the top with red if you get what I mean😁

Jelly is Dolphin Grey with red leather. He now has an ebay 6 speed gearknob and gaiter, plus a black steering wheel with red stitching. However the airbag is now red and black!

Today Doris went out to stretch her legs :)

It’s the first time she’s been on the road since owning her and she drives beautifully :)

Today I fitted the new A2OC stickers in Doris :)

I’ll do the 20th anniversary sticker when it’s not so wet out side 😅

The little compartment in the climate panel houses a small fan that sucks air in to measure the cabin temperature. This always gets clogged with hair, dust and other rubbish. Give it a really good clean out and make sure the fan spins freely afterwards. Good work.

Don’t worry it spins freely I even cleaned the fan itself

Really does make a big difference. Perhaps if / when you do button swaps on climate panels you could add a fan service FOC?

Yes I’d clean the fan anyway if I was changing the buttons as I’m in that area I wouldn’t charge extra though :)

Today I fitted a new fuse cover as it was missing when I brought the car and I also replaced the sun visor clip as the old one was broken :)
