    I'm contemplating having the rear diffuser sprayed gloss back. How easy are they to remove?
    I think the part new is £200 approx from Audi?

    I'm wondering how much to have it sprayed? Would my old silver one be worth anything, as this could fund the black one.
    Also if anyone has one laying about after a Rs3 rear upgrade-Shout :)

    I know the front bumper part is approx £50 so cheaper to buy that, than have it sprayed.

    Anyone else on here gone down this route? My car is in Ibis white, so think it finishes the car nicely.
    Shame the updated rear lights are so much money, or I'd be tempted to go down that route too.

    Is it easy to remove, did you have it sprayed, or buy one ready?

    Body shop did it, so I didn't take part in the removal. They had the whole bumper off at the time anyway, so was probably vey easy to remove when 'on the bench'.

    It was painted gloss black. I didn't buy one.

    Do you have some pics? Did you have the front splitter painted too, or just bought the actual part? Cheers

    Painted front splitter myself, came out pretty good, needs re doing now though after 2 years of stone chips and weathering.

    Yes, I have no inclination to change those.
