    Split Grill Option

    hey guys, does anyone know how i would go about this this instead of splashing too much cash into doing a proper conversion, this seems like a more viable option until i can source the correct parts.



    help much appreciated

    Thanks

    Just have a look on eBay for "chrome styling trim" they have all different size widths match it up to the size of the original and just stick it on.
    SPEC: ebony pearl black ~ auto lights ~ auto wipers ~ half leather/suede interior ~ armrest ~ anti dazzle rear mirrior ~ coming home/ leaving home function.

    MODS: flat bottom steering wheel ~ bluetooth ~ cruise control ~ rns-e ~ MY09 rear lights ~ s3 pedals ~ s3 air vents ~ LED interior light pack ~ facelift buttons ~ dension ~ SDS ~ Aliminium inlays ~ full grille conversion.

    FUTURE MODS: lower ~ black edition rear ~ s-line/facelift front ~ black headlining ~ BBS CH-R or Speedlines.

    a bit of chrome trim off halfords and a bra of ebay or you could just paint your chrome grills black or the middle bit of your bumper

    cars shouldnt wear bras come to think of it no one should !!!!

    Thing is I quite like the split grille in its own way, which is why I've left mine, so I think trying to change to a single wannabe just ruins it

    Your car though dude, not mine
