    No Black Grille for my 2006 (56) A3?

    I've just been on the phone to Audi to order a black edition grille for my 2006 (56) A3 TDI 140 and was told that they dont do any for my car... Strange as I'm sure many people have had it done.

    Can anyone shed any light on whether this is wrong or not.

    I'd much rather stick to oem than any ebay copies if poss.

    Its an black optic grille not a black edition grille. Pm Stoke Audi on here for the part number they probably be cheaper than your local dealer aswell and will arrange for it to be delivered to your house.

    And does the black optics grille have the black surround frame instead of the chrome one? I only ask because he said that they do have a black grille for my car but the surround frame is still chrome.

    Parts guy clearly doesnt have a clue what he talking about lol. Yes as its an black optic grille, I got it on my A3 fella well the S3 verison. They do two types for the A3 8P2 S-line Optic grille and a standard Optic grille.
    Go down to the sponsors at the bottom of the forum and give Dave @ Stoke Audi a call he will be cheaper than your local dealer and will know what your on about. My dealer tried telling me there was no such thing as MY11 lights or anyway to retro fit foglights in till i spoke to some one else in there that had more than half a brain cell. I just deal directly with one person Dan on parts as he the only one who knows whats he doing, willing to help and doesnt mind getting his hands dirty.

    Nope the black optic grill comes as matte black grill, gloss black surround and chrome audi rings! Number plate holder and S-line badge are separate parts! Assuming you have an S-line with front end like mine?

    Ok, just spoke to Stoke Audi and they have the grille that I'm after for 170 which is good... but then was told that I need a black number plate holder which is 51 !!

    Anyone know of any cheaper alternatives to the plate holder cause that seems very expensive for what it is.
