    A3 rear sline tow eye cover

    Hi, we have a 2006 A3 sline sportback which had to have a new rear tow eye cover put on it when we purchased it and this came primed, not the colour of the s-line grey plastic part, so the dealer had to spray it (Crewe Audi) but did a poor job of it and it does not match at all. They wanted to spray the whole of the grey part but i didnt want this done because it was likely to chip. So i am wandering if a rear tow eye cover off a 2009 A3 sport sportback would fit our 2006 sline sportback as the 2009 part seems like it comes in the correct dark grey colour according to etka?

    I have shown what i mean in the link below

    Thanks

    Anyone help with this part?

    Thanks, according to audi used car locator there is an older style sportback listed for sale at Stoke Audi, reg plate MA07BHY, which is the same as our car. Would you be able to match it up with that car?


    Thanks for your help

    hi, i have had an email through for payment, but its for £16.71. You quoted the price at £4.49 above, does it cost over £12 to post it?

    Hi

    the email you have received is for an unpainted primed trim to fit your car,
    the one i quoted for is for a 2009 model SE black version. but the fixing tabs are different to yours
    also the 2009 sline is a completely different lower trim

    Dave

    Ok, i thought you were sending me the one off the newer car, i measured one at the weekend and it was the same size as mine, but if you are saying the tabs are different then i guess its no going to work. We already have a primed tow eye on the car, but there does not seem to be a specific paint code that matches the rest of the sline grey trim, i was hoping i could use the later tow eye cover as that does not come in primer. Seems like i will just have to find a decent bodyshop to try and match it up, i still have no idea why audi supply it primed and not in the grey sline trim colour.

    Thanks for your help anyway
