I tried to buy them too, they are no longer made according to TPS and some of the european new car parts ebay sellers.

I ordered up from 3 different suppliers on ebay - all said they had stock of drivers side - none of them arrived and they issued refunds. I got hold of a new one from a website in germany thankfully - but it was new 'old' stock.

I’m wondering if a more longer permanent fix would be to have the blades fully removed and the bottom of the doors fabricated and smoothed over.
I imagine over the very near future the door blades are going to be very hard to find.

Thanks for the link.I will give them a try.
I took my car to my local body repair Shop,and he told me that someone else had come with his RS4 with the same problem. He tryed to repair,but it didn;t work.
He said that t.p.s told him that because Audi had stopped producing the blades,another company would be able to start making them.
They are definetly something we are all going to need,at some point.

Audi heritage make them for left hand drive cars already, this will soon be the case for right hand drive cars now that Audi no longer have any stock according to my local main dealer. TPS did have a few still scattered around the country as I managed to buy one through my main dealer for £142 this week as long as I went and collected it

you're lucky. I spoke to t.p.s they had one in stock,but refused to sell it to me.,due to covid restrictions,and they refused to send it my local Audi dealer.The body Shop I go to ,uses t.p.s for parts,so he ,phoned them,and was told there were none left in the country .
My local Audi dealer,said that he would try to get in touch with Audi Heritage,but said that at the moment they were closed due to covid,and wasn't sure when they would be open again.
It,s good news that they are going to start making them again though.

Preview: Re: Door blade
Audi Heritage don’t have any for the front O/S door. I’ve been in touch.
Hopefully someone will start to manufacture them, it’d be a worthwhile product....I’m guessing 90% of B7’s will suffer from this.
I have noticed the cabriolets don’t have them...
I wonder if a long term fix would be to remove the trim, fabricate the bottom of the door have it smoothed/re-painted over? It would look like the cabriolet doors.

Update:
Regarding door blades I have been informed ‘Blic’ who manufacture door trim parts for the Audi group are in the process now of manufacturing and being able to supply, early November for those that are needing them....and at a fraction of the RRP cost.
