    My front upgraded DIY style

    .ExternalClass .ecxhmmessage P {padding:0px;} .ExternalClass body.ecxhmmessage {font-size:10pt;font-family:Tahoma;} Wanted to update the front of my grille so with some inspiration from SarahA3 i got a local sign and car wrapping company to wrap the middle bit matt black and the grille surround glass black. What you guys think?

    Wanted the complete late end but i thought its adding up to much. I should have taken the pics further back to give you a better idea.

    Cost 100 which was a good price as material itself costs about 40, took about 3 hours.
    Not sure about the badge but who knows might just spray that later

    Get a private reg on that and I'm sure you could convince a few people that's a facelift! Nice job!

    Nally i know what you mean by the leaving the chrome trim, i'm gonna see if the black gloss surround grows on me

    I had a private plate but sold it with my previous Audi couldnt be bothered with all the paperwork.

    TBH making the rings black aswell doesnt do anything for your mod, keep the contrast & it will look alot better.

    Yo Sarah big up with your chrome trim bits. The guy who did the wrap even wrapped the leftovers.

    Yes I agree if I were to the rings black it would be too much. I'm loving my 11 lights though!
