    Hi, I have an 05 A3 in black which has started to fade to what looks like a very very dark blue. I have bought a black grill for the front and don't want the grill standing out as being a deeper black then the car. Is there any way to restore the car to its original black as much as possible?

    Thanks

    Looks stunning Jase. A lot of effort has went into that to get such a nice sheen. :)

    Wow that's impressive, what process did you go through to get that result? Did you use a buffer?
