    Front grill chrome trim/surround; can it be replaced on its own?

    I've got an A3 Sportback and the chrome border part of the grill has chipped off quite badly at the bottom - I was wondering if you could just replace this chrome surround rather than the whole grill? If so does anyone know any part numbers by any chance?

    If its the face lift I was told by Audi that its sold as a complete grill only, I would be keen to get a part number too if anyone has bought just the surround.

    Yeah if its the 05-08 shape then yeah it splits, I did mine easily enough. If its the 08- facelift then they are one piece.

    Thanks for the replies. Mines a 57-plate so is pre-facelift.

    Motox, I might try TPS first and see how much a new one is as it's only 3.5years old and quite badly pitted/delaminated so might just get a new one.

    Sorry to renew an older post but can anyone confirm that the normal A3 Sport grill chrome will fit on an s-line grill?
    I just bought the s-line grill on eBay (luckily very cheap) but the chrome is a little scratched with 1 nasty stone chip. My old A3 grill chrome is mint so I'd like to swap the chrome rather than buy a new one.

    Your help will be much appreciated.

    S3's Grills are a little shorter in depth (so I'm told) so will only fit S3 specific bumpers.

    Cheers guys. Yes, I too thought the S3 grill was different but just wanted to clarify if the chrome can be swapped between an s-line and normal A3 grill. Apparently it can so I'll give it a go and report back
