    Hi Guys

    I am purchasing an Audi A3 2.0TDI S-line tomorrow and the front bumper is the split grill version. I have seen pictures where this is made to look like a single grill.

    Can anyone send me any links for what i need to do/ purchase please?

    Many thanks

    Aaron

    Search the forum for "single grill upgrade" or similar and you'll find the info you need as it's all been done hundreds of times ;)

    You can just put some plastic stripes (which look like chrome) like I did and it looks pretty okay in my opinion as well. Mine cost 2$, you can see the front of my car on my profile garage.

    No primer needed.

    I just removed them from the car and gave them a good clean.
    Then sprayed it with Matt black plastidip, 5 layers.
