    Black all over with silver audi symbol. Defo!

    Have a look at ~FK grilles, they are a cheaper alternative to the oem optics grills.

    hmmm i think i will go with black optics grille then but ... do you have to buy them as i have a body shop near me that my dad is best mates with and does paint jobs for me for free, i was thinking about taking my grille out and getting him to paint it, would that work the same?

    It could do, but It will chip very easily and runs the risk of looking shoddy after a short while

    You can get a black FK grill for around 70.

    quick one, is the S3 front grill a straight swap with the A3 S-Line grill or is it smaller?

    The S3's slightly shorter than the S Line I think!
