    Lightbulb 2006 Front Grille

    So I am really wanting to either respray my front bumper or facelift if or some of it..

    It's covered in stone chips, only sprating is going to fix.

    One mod I really want to do though is my grille, can I please have your opinions?

    PS, if anyone wants any quick photoshop mods like this one, pm me

    Thank you

    Both ways looks fine, in Black looks more agresive but with Chrome looks "Classy".

    Black all the way.

    I have an 06 plate also and put on the FK tuning black grill. Looks so much better.

    I have a FK black grille for sale. Brand new but does have a few scratches on it, perfect if you want to spray or vinyl wrap.

    Does the chrome surround clip/screw off, or is it part of the grill assembly?

    I did my 06 sline chrome in black wrap last week:
    My Weekend Chrome Vinyl Wrap

    PM me if you have questions ... only cost me £20 so a good option if you don't wanna buy an optics grill.

    You could freshen it up a bit with an sline bumper. I like it more than the newer S3 and sline bumpers.

    Fantastic, thanks.

    Will have a go at removing mine and painting it later in the week, looks like mine is slightly different though has the chrome is in 2 pieces (top and bottom).

    Wow thanks for the replies! Only just got back online.

    I think I am going to go for black... looks looks non-standard!

    I will have a look at removing it in a min, I will PM Dannykn9 now for his black one.

    What is the difference between the FK & normal?

    Thanks!
