    Damn Friday the 13th !!!! Grille issues

    OK, so how unlucky is it to clobber not one but two wild birds in one day ? Got away with this morning's incident, but forfeited a nearside fog light grille tonight.

    With the demise of "Audi Accessories", does anyone know a cheaper place than a stealer to get a replacement part ? I know it's only around 25.00, but money don't grow on trees you know

    Thanks in advance for any help received

    Unlucky, am sure the bird regrets it more!

    Depends how long you are willing to wait, they do come up on ebay from time to time.

    hey, forgot it was the 13th today! That said, I nearly was involved in a crash today. Was road testing a C3 (broken coil spring) and while ON a roundabout turning right saw a seicento thingy flying in from my left. I managed to stop on the roundabout as they shot through without even slowing. Just as well some of us are paying attention!
