    Chrome surround on the number plate bit or yellow fog lights?

    It's like playing spot the difference!

    For £2 I think the chrome surround adds a nice updated touch. Not so keen on the yellow foggers though but whatever floats ya boat.

    both!

    I bought a facelift bumper and grille but finding a reasonably priced bonnet is proving shockingly hard, so I did this as a temporary measure, but it may stay this way!

    I did the chrome surround thingy on a A3 about 4 years ago. Another benefit is, the bumper hits the chrome first if backing up to a sold object like a wall etc.

    It'll hit the numberplate surround first unfortunately

    Don't get the yellow fogs at all. Especially seeing as you need to turn them on once or twice a year.

    I like the yellow fogs, but then I've done them on mine.

    And who cares how often you use them? They still look yellow all year round, and if he likes them then it's worth it!
