    There's a professionally painted gloss black S3 grille just gone up for sale on Ebay and it's shown on a Blue S3, looks sweet and good price too, but the sellers feedback isn't the best.

    haha thanks for the comments.

    But looking at going black grill still.

    8P0 853 651 A 3FZ is the part number i found on here but does this include the entire black grill or just the grill and not the gloss black surrounding?

    I agree with the change, Sprint blue looks epic with the black optics grill.

    Apologies, I keep posting this pic, but the OP did request it!



    I've got plenty more if you need them

    I've posted a few in the pics thread, page 51 I think. I too originally had anthracite CK's, but the mix of alu mirrors, optics black and grey wheels didn't all match, so black all over was the way.

    Black grill on the blue works very well - you not thought about black wheels to compliment?

    Sorry for the thread hijack, i am a noob and cant find where to start a new topic. Anyways i am about to buy a s3 pre facelift in sprint blue, and think it suits the black grill much better than chrome... So where can i buy a black grill, without paying dealer prices? Thanks

    Yeah, black wheels would be nice and something for the future maybe when I feel like a change. I've only had it a couple of weeks and not bored with the look just yet!
