    I recently got the wiper arms/blades. 130 for fronts and backs with blades from VW!!! I only bought them because I had a new windscreen fitted and want new everthing.

    I dont think they ever did a genuine 19" RSTT so I'd assume they would have to be reps.

    1500 is a rip off though as you could get 3 sets of 18" RSTT reps for that price!!!

    I've recently put the Bosch aero wipers on the front, they just dont sit as well as I would like. So arms and wheel spacers onto the list... Getting expensive now

    This is mine, matt black, so much better than the chrome, it's embarrasing enough having to put up with Snoop Dogg's wing mirrors lol

    I think the black grill surround looks good on almost all colours bar silver.

    Nope, dont like it. Maybe if the surround was body colour instead of chrome or black it would look mint.

    I think on silver, just the surround looks good dechromed, with the rings left in silver.

    I might tape that shizzle up (just trying to be down with the crew innit) and see how it looks

    I'm pretty sure he removed them before spraying as they are only clipped on.

    They are SO easy to take off, I managed to take the ones off my girlfriends car with just my hands! The biggest problem is painting them, you have to rough them up first. I used a scotch pad to get a good finish.

    -

    Now I've got some real photos of it I am REALLY feeling the blacked out front now, looks properly good with the new plates too :D

    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Well i've taken off my grill surround, rubbed it down with medium grade wet & dry, and given it a coat of Dolphin Grey!
    Tomorrow it's getting another coat of the body colour and a couple of coats of clear laquer. I'll post pics of the result.

    If I don't like it (or I make a mess of it) i'll be re-doing it in gloss black! Must admit I do like how the car looks with no grill surround at all!

    How does it look without the grill ? Any chance of some images, it may be the easy way to get a black grill ! lol

    Sorry darkcooleo, only just saw your post above.
    I didn't take any before or during pics. The grill is now back on the car and looks good (I think), i'll take a pic later and post it up on here.
    Still might go black sometime for a change.

    Yeah, easiest way to tell if you'll like a black surround is just to remove the chrome surround and see what you think!

    Unfortunately the guy I sold it to put all the bling bits back on, and I think it's since been sold on to someone down south. (but I still have the spare adaptor for the locking wheel nuts...)

    Im planning to do this over the weekend and paint the surround a dark grey like my S3 alloys.
    But another question I wanted to ask was for the side panels, because I dont have a S3 are they hard to remove and paint?
