So after going through the whole 8P model class I wanted to make a subtle change to bring the modern 8V into my 8P as I've sat in this space for a few years now.

Will get the octopus blades done in white to match the car or maybe even carbon fibre wrap to match the interior trim.

Much filing required and very time consuming but I'm pretty pleased with the outcome and they sit very flush albeit a much bigger vent. When I get my dremel it will kill the time greatly.

Thoughts welcome.

Red ones already exist, hence the suggestion.

Not sure they are for me, but top effort on the retrofit.

i did mate cheers, that's where I got the original idea from. May give it a go as they're only being wrapped. So can trial anything really.

Not quite white but grey inserts to give an example of colour variations.

Quite like the grey inserts. A bit different to the norm... I guess for me it would depend on the interior stitching colour?

Extended leather with silver stitching everywhere... so maybe a silver wrap

Hard to find second hand and not worth the £300 OEM price tag so get some A3/S3 ones (approx £120) and wrap yourself
Part number:- 8V0 820 901 A

Wow, nice one. looks oem, I was worried wrapping might look obviously DIY.

Much better with a little colour. It's all the little details that make the differenceffort and these 8v vents are a nice touch.
