Why the TRD CAI only?

i'd be smart to protect your warranty. i would not recommend throwing away a $1000 - $1500 7yr/100k in order to save $50 - $75. if your B was out-of-warranty or you didn't fork over the costs for an extended that would be different story.

any performance gains with aftermarket cai couldn't justify the risk to such an investment. i have the trd cai and it has served me well over the years. i've cleaned the filter twice and it's still performing as designed.

hope you find what you looking for. be patient. i will pm you if i happen to run across one.

I have an rs6 too, :)

I have had the oval bezel around the stereo off many times. To get it off I have usedat various times a flat-bladed screwdriver, a 1" putty knife, wooden shim. Whatever you use, wrap the end in electrical tape so you don't scratch the plastic. I usually start on the passenger side just because that's where I sit so the steering wheel isn't in the way. Squeeze the top and bottom of the bezel slightly to make a small gap, put your putty knife (or whatever) in there and just pry up. It is only held on by clips. It once you get it started it should just pop right off. Once you have that off, there is a narrow piece across the bottom of the opening that also slides straight out to give access to the lower screws on the stereo.

I hope this helps.

Good lookin out, I'll try that when I get home (having trouble with the OEM fogs going out with my DDM tuning hids because of rain)

If you are trying to remove the dash piece that has the fog switch in it, that's easy too. Sitting in the driver's seat, grab the bottom of the dash by your right knee and pull towards you. It should easily pop out. Then just work your way across to the left side. Don't yank the dash piece out too far (more than 2 or 3 inches) because you will have to undo the wires from the back of the buttons. There are at least 2 on the left (fogs and traction cont.) and 1 more on the right way at the bottom for the TPMS reset button.

sorry to barge-in guys, but this conversation seems a little off-topic. we started with the trd cai, then dash pieces, now fogs. maybe we need to start a new thread so others can benefit from what's being said.

@zinger, the info about the dash pieces was very helpful. i would have missed that if i hadn't been browsing.

no offense, guys!

Oh no sorry I meant my fog lights are going out because of water shorting them not me trying to get the accent pieces off.
I thought you maybe you were trying to take it apart to look for the short. :)

@erozcs: yeah, good point. Unfortunately I frequently tend to stray off topic. Maybe a mod (Phobic or TJ) can move the posts about the dash to a new thread. :cheers:
