    Is that the facelift model ? I changed the grill on my 2005 Sportback, the frame is around £50 from Audi, the centre section I don't know but you can change it, again try your local dealer.

    the optik grill is over £200 from audi direct, if its the new facelift then I know someone thats sells them cheaply, if its the pre-facelift then thats a hard one to find cheaper than rrp trust me cause I've been looking for ages.

    when you say "new facelift" do you mean the 09 model or the post 05 model?

    I doubt its that cheap for the optik grill, no way even from Martyn, I'd be very surprised & there next customer, lol, as they usually arent far of audi prices but to be £100+ less unlikely & here's the number plate thingy.

    That's probably about the right price. When I was sourcing one for mine (pre-facelift) I was quoted £83.93 inc VAT for the grill and £38.12 inc VAT for the black number plate insert - that was in March.
