    Not sure about the single frame - But if it's anything like the double grill, then it's easily removed. However, the clips that hold it in place a very fragile!!

    Just unclips around the edges, takes about 10 mins. I did this to my spare grille with the black surround.

    can you buy a black front grille surround on its own? rather than the whole front grille?

    Yeah it was a bit of a pain to remove but i did it after much jiggin about with the screw driver!

    and no you cant buy a black surround, i tried but theres no part number for it, the grille comes complete including the surround and audi rings.

    The normal grilles have a built in number plate holder aswell but the S line ones come with a seperate piece. I think its so you can change the plate for different country spec sizes.

    Yea you can, but there is only a small difference in price i got a quote from SHREWSBURY AUDI last year for about 90.00 for black optics grille and 25 for the plate holder.
