    I have been looking on ETKA for the part no. for the black grille which comes on the optics pack, does anyone know if the following part no. is the correct one? 8P4 853 651?

    I only want the grille not the black surround.

    8P4 853 651 D 3FZ is the part number for the grille kit which consists of the grille, the frame (8P4 807 715 VMZ), and the audi logo (8D0 853 605).

    It does not list just the grille on its own. You seem to need to buy the whole kit.

    If you look on ETKA it is illustration 853-30. Item 1A is the grille kit which includes the frame (1B) and the logo (6).

    PR-2JD is the code for the S-Line and 4ZM is the code for the optics pack.

    Ages ago I used a product called BumperCote to recolour a grey dashboard to matt black. The stuff was brilliant and actually bonds with the plastic so it doesn't flake or scratch off. You could use something like this to re-colour your existing grille to black. Have a look at http://www.kolorbond.ltd.uk/otherproducts.htm

    theres an ebay shop on ebay uk too, think its the big vw and audi store, he ships from germany though.
    a few months back i got my black styling grille from them for a total of about £80, that included the grille, the black number plate holder, which is not included with the grille, and shipping from germany,
    of course the euro was a lot stronger back then.

    yes I have some fitting at moment, but they are far from cheap, £2-300 with vat luckily when they told me I was sitting down, the skirts also need new sills in bottom of door arches, as the ones you pull of to fit the skirts are not deep enough to cover the skirt fixing points, also the bottoms of the doors need new trims as existing arent thick enough as leave you with a step about 5-10mm above the skirts under the doors, might leave as this as different, lol
