F31 side decals

Post by Ian Hosk » Tue Sep 10, 2019 12:58 pm

Hi

My 2014 D3 touring is in need of replacement side & chin spoiler decals. Does anyone have any tips on the best way to get this sorted? I have had a quote from a local sign writing specialist but before I go ahead I thought Id ask around.

Thanks

Ian

There is a member on here who does what are reputed to be the most faithful reproduction dekor sets, but I believe he is a busy man and can be tricky to get hold of.

If you get ahold of him could you let me know, as I will be back in the fold on Saturday and may require side decals !

A slight word of warning when replacing side graphics: if you're doing a part replacement with non-OEM parts (sytner can supply BTW) you may not get a colour match as there are a number of vinyl suppliers and there are noticeable shade differences. ALPINA were using Avery Dennison IIRC. Ideally, a full side replacement is a better idea if using non-OEM

As you can imagine trying to find a B4 was getting nye on impossible, so I checked out a D3 biturbo (sorry Robert :? ) and was very impressed, so have decided to go that route as I couldn’t wait any longer ! :D

Hi all,

I did get hold of Simon, I messaged him here.

We are just finding a time for me to go see him as he is just over an hour from me to redo the whole car
