Want an aluminum set of trim for your B6/B7?

Got a wood set you can trade me for it?

Straight up trade, you send me your wood set and when I get it I ship out the aluminum set to you the same day.  You pay for shipping your set to me, I pay for shipping my set to you.  Read the post below, check out some of the pictures, and if you’re interested, shoot me an email at matt@ocarbon.com and I’ll get you set up.

I’ve got two of these aluminum sets I need to trade for wood sets.  Both of them have a manual shifter.  These sets aren’t in the best shape, they have a few scratches and a few nicks, but they’re perfect candidates for the DIY brushed aluminum modification.

DIY Brushed Mod 2

 

 

Rules:

1) I only want to trade for a wood set.

2) As long as your wood set has all the correct pieces and none of the tabs are broken, I’ll take it.  I don’t care how scratched up it is, how ugly it looks, if its painted, or if it’s wrapped in some ugly fake vinyl.  As long as its wood, and nothing is missing or broken, we’ll be good to go.

3) Don’t waste my time.  I’ve had problems with people setting up trades and then not following through.

Set 1 pictures:

Notes – The front ashtray tab fell out, I’ll included a new one.  You’ll have to re-glue it on.  There is also a bit of fabric under the Quattro badge.  The rear ashtray is just the cover, you’ll have to keep your tub.  You’ll also have to keep your chrome ring on your shifter and transfer it to this set.

 

Set 2 pictures:

Notes: Is in a little bit better shape than set 1.  It does have mismatched plastic endcaps though (one is tan, one is black.  Very odd).  You can probably plastidip them both to get them to match.  You will have to keep the chrome ring on your shifter and transfer it to this set.

If you’re interested in upgrading your wood set to an aluminum one, email me at matt@ocarbon.com.

We’re giving away this carbon fiber funnel…

A few months ago, there was a pretty funny post on Audizine involving a funnel (I’m sure a few of you know what I’m talking about).

To celebrate what has become an inside joke on the forums, we went ahead and made the worlds best carbon fiber funnel and we’re giving it away to one of our Facebook fans.  It is guaranteed* to speed up your oil change times, as well as improve your engine’s performance.

We’re not sure how we’re going to give it away yet, so we’re looking for ideas.  Should we have a funnel themed photo contest?  Another random drawing?  Maybe you’ve got a better idea on the fairest way to give this bad boy out.  If so, post up your ideas on our Facebook page and let us know what you think.

*not a guarantee

 

And the winners are….

Our first sweepstakes is in the books and the winners have been drawn.  I ended up giving away a second grand prize and a few extra second place prizes as well. If you didn’t win, don’t fret.  I’ll be emailing everyone a little bonus in a few days, so keep your eyes open for that.

We’ll also be doing this all over again real soon, with you guys picking what type of contest we run and choosing the winners.

So lets get on with it:

Grand Prize Winners – 1 free set of oCarbon trim

1) Trevor T. – B8 A4
2) Dennis M. – B5 S4

First Prize Winner – $300 oCarbon gift certificate

1) Ben S. – B8 A4

Second Prize Winners – $100 oCarbon gift certificate

Want to win a free set of oCarbon trim?

Summer is finally here and that means it’s the start of show season.  What better way to celebrate than to give away a brand new set of oCarbon trim?

So how do you get in on this?  It’s easy and only takes a moment.

 

Step 1

Head on over to our Facebook page here:  http://facebook.com/ocarbon

 

Step 2

Like our fan page.

Already one of our fans on Facebook?  Head over to the Sweepstakes tab on the left side menu.

 

 

Step 3

Click on “Enter Sweepstakes” and fill out the form.

That’s it!

The grand prize winner will get a full set of oCarbon carbon fiber trim for their Audi.  They’ll have the option of having a custom set made in the fabric of their choice.  A core or a core deposit will be required, but I’ll sort out those details with the winner when the time comes.

Didn’t get the grand prize?  No worries!  We’ll also be giving away a bunch of oCarbon gift certificates in $50-250 denominations in the days after the sweepstakes ends.

The sweepstakes runs from now until the end of July (July 31st, 11:59pm MST).  We’ll randomly select the winners a few days after the sweepstakes closes and announce the winners on our Facebook page.

 

Few rules:

1) Entrant must be 18, sorry kids.

2) Entrant must reside in the United States or Canada.  We’ll consider doing an international contest next time, but for this first one we’re going to keep it “local”.

3) Entrant must have an Audi.  We’re currently expanding into other makes and models, but this sweepstakes is only open to Audi owners.  I’m not making carbon fiber trim for a 1983 Honda Civic hatchback.  If you have a 1983 Honda Civic hatchback, you’re more than welcome to enter, but if you win you’ll be disqualified and your prize will be awarded to an Audi owner.

4) Full set of official rules and boring stuff can be found here: Official Rules

 

If you have any questions about the sweepstakes or have any trouble signing up, feel free to email me at matt@ocarbon.com and I’ll get you sorted.

Good luck!
