    Black Optic Pack

    Could someone tell me what this entails?

    Is the standard grill on the 07 A3 grey or black - i.e. would it look daft if i were to retrofit the piano black SFG? These are going for 65 sheets on the bay....

    If it's anything like the S-Line it's dark grey. It looks black but it's not.

    The full pack is the surround (what was the chrome bit), grille and number plate plinth.

    :edit:

    I don't think it would look daft, it's just not the complete job. Hence I have a surround for sale

    Bit of a stupid question really on my part, as you purchase the whole thing in a one-er anyway right?

    Next question - I bet this is a total pain in the arse to fit yeah?

    Anyone done a fitting guide?

    Or would my dealers fit it if i asked them nicely? Or would this "invalidate warranty".....

    I havent done a guide, I wish I had done now

    But once you have the bumper off , its just a case of pushing out all the plastic clips

    one thing to remember with the bumper , there are two torx screws and a 10mm bolt joining the bumper to the wing on each side , to acess these i take the wheels off and remove the lower wheel arch liners

    even though i have a double grill on my a3, it is probably the same idea to fit/remove - which is easy

    there is a panel at the top of the bumper with 2 torque screws which is simple to move

    then you just get your hands down inside the bumper and push the clips away from the bumper and it should pop off easy enough

    Nope. Two screws, one at either side, half way down the back of the grille.
