    Everytime i look at your ming Karl, i think of mine...love the colour and nice signature pic.

    Agreed about stone chips and like most, I have only done the grill surround which is a piece of p*ss to unclip and paint.

    Been debating the grill spray job for a while myself and reckon that i'll do when the weather warms up a little as, whilst it could get a little tedious, the grill looks so much better in black paint than the cheap-looking grey plastic.

    There are a few member on here with it painted black and it does look great. The only other thing that bothers me is that my fmic will then stand out like a beacon beneath it but i guess that you can't have it all.

    Be good to see? Think on an S3 though the grey bits should stay grey (even if you have sprayed the grill black)
