    FK sport grill

    thought id share a quick picture of the FK sport grill i fitted to my car recently couldnt justify spending a silly amount on a genuine blackout grill so went for this instead . cost £17 from FK direct and £13 shipping from germany ,made from abs plastic and fitment is spot on . took a bit of a gamble as i couldnt find any on the forum anywhere so guess this will help anyone who may have considered one ? really suits the car ,will post pics of it on the car when i get chance .should match my black 3sdms nicely ......

    I posted 5 minutes ago a link to the website as I'm seeing grills on there from 12.50!!

    The grill looks really smart, make sure you get a few pics up when you've got it on the car!

    I have that exact grill on my red A3, but with the built in DRLs. Haven't wired them in yet though

    I had mine done just after christmas and love it



    but after only having the grille on about 3months its already seems to be fading :\



    it may look like dirt but it seems that the grille is not black ABS plastic but lightly sprayed either that or someone who was jealous done something to it lol

    but at the price they are if it gets worse or really gets under my skin I can get another one

    Has anyone got the FK S3 look grill. It's chrome surround with black centre instead of grey/chrome but the grill layout is the same so looks different enough not to be an S3 replica but still looks OEMish. Was thinking of getting one as its £40 whereas an OEM S3 is £250+

    For that price, it's seems an excellent deal.... but I'm not too keen on the bar that runs either side of the Audi badge. It'd look great without that imo

    I'm drifting towards the FK S3 style grill now though. Only £50 too, which is still very reasonable

    It also comes in all black! Here's a picture another member posted on here a few years back of his FK S3 style grill in all black.... I like a lot!!

    Great grills for the money.

    The only issue is that the plastic is quite soft and seems to scratch fairly easily! But for £50 you can't really complain

    Ive went for the one with the chrome. But at these prices if you don't like your grill its fairly cheap to change

    I got this as a replacement for a damaged grill and it looks quite good, as you say different enough but doesn't shout "aftermarket" too much like the all-black variant which I'm not keen on. There is a recess in the vertical slats that would allow chrome strips for the S3 look (have seen some sticky chrome strips on ebay quite cheap and considered it).

    It's worth noting that these grills are one piece (the chrome border is part of the same one-piece) and what is actually done is the whole grill is chrome but the centre is painted satin black. A few stone chips on mine have revealed the chrome underneath. I have recently repainted the centre with the plastidip which should be more durable hopefully (this was after a year; it by no means looked bad but there were a couple of stone chips showing through).

    I assume the all black versions are just not chrome and paint blacked/black plastic.

    I think your right, seems to be all chrome then painted black. I don't know anything about manufacturing but it seems a backward way to do it, you'd think get a black one then add the chrome. Pretty happy with it though.
