So i have some more, major and sadly not cheap updates i have to show you.
Let me start with the more simple and straight forward ones.

First, the MMI surround. A fellow A1 member, Wilmer, pointed out that i can change the surround with the newer HD, piano black one. So, yeah u guessed it, I ordered it immediately, I had no idea this could be changed.

Removed my MMI surround

Then, another little touch, was the light switch. Wilmer, pointed out, that on the TT mk2 (8J) the light switch can also have piano black material. So onto finding one. Even better though, he sourced one for me. Awesome guy. So, onto pics.

However, if you recall, i have changed all my interior lighting to white. So this new switch, could not be let having red light.
So, yes, swapping the boards was next.
