    Most people just spray there old ones tbh. That's what I did and it's much easier and cheaper. Only ones I know that come in matt black is vw signs.

    The other alternative to painting it is to get it wrapped in vinyl.

    I've tried spray painting with 4 layers of matt plasticoat and it chipped. I then got the body shop to paint it body coloured with primer, main coat, and laquer and it chipped. Now it's been wrapped and its not chipped it's much tougher.

    I wrapped mine. It tends to get chipped if you spray it.

    Thats from my own previous experience anyways. Maybe im just not great at spraying lol

    I used plasti dip for mine. 18 months without a problem. Only downside is the matt black doesnt quite match the rest of the grill so will have to do that at some point to. Is the black car in that pic yours?

    I have also plastidip but after 1 year it is going down. I think put audi logo to vinil is hard from 1 piece of vinil. Maybe i will try plastidip again. no upper car is not mine, my car is this

    Need it lowered mate!! Lol. Did you prep it before? I rubbed mine down first. In theory with plasti dip you dont need to but its gotta help. Also i removed it and did the back also. They sell a primer that adds to the strength but that loses the pulling off ability. Daz
