D2 A8 Carbon Fiber Trim Production

I had totally forgotten about this core until recently.  Originally, I purchased it for a customer interested in having a carbon fiber set made for his D2 A8L sometime in 2007.  Unfortunately, the customer ended up selling his car and didn't want the trim anymore, so the core sat unused for a while.  A few months later I decided to take a crack at it without a customer ready to buy.  I got the fiber laid up and the resin applied, but I wasn't happy with the results so I never finished it.  A few weeks ago while cleaning out my garage I discovered it and decided to try to salvage it.

I spent a few hours carefully grinding and peeling away all of the old carbon fiber.  After I got it all off, the set was ready for a second attempt at being beautiful again.

An overview of the entire set.  There are 12 pieces total, but I'm unsure if this is a complete set or not.  I've never done a D2 set before, so I'm not even sure where a lot of the pieces are located in the car.

The two front door pieces are by far the longest pieces I have ever made.

Shifter plate.  No idea if it is an automatic or a manual (I don't even know if a manual was offered on the D2).

I'm assuming some of these are ashtray covers.

Dash pieces.

Center console pieces.  These two pieces were pretty intense and took a lot of work to get them to where I was happy with how they looked.

I'll be sure to post more pictures under the D2 tag as I finish up this set.  Still no idea of pricing, but it would probably pretty expensive considering the amount of pieces and the difficulty of some of them.

  • Regarding the A8 D2, is this the facelift or pre facelift?
    And the D2 was delivered with both manual and automatic.
    And yes, there is 12 parts in a complete sett.

    Own a 2001 A8 w12 and would like a price on that kit

  • Very nice…I’m in Australia and have an August 2000 build A8L…this trim looks quite nice…I would be interested in the price too…I slightly modified my A8 with an 2300 Lysholm supercharger…get over 300HP at the wheels, added 20" Audi 9-spoke wheels and installed a custom made SS header set. Still some fine tuning being done with a Bosch 044 in-line fuel pump, plus boost gauge and some exhaust work (dual 3" soon)…othersie just your old standard silver Audi I guess…happy to share my experiences with fellow A8 owners…regs, Oscar Bevz, Sydney, Australia.
