    i have quite bad stone chips on my chrome grill surround, and cant decide whether to go for the black vinyl wrap or just order a new chrome one!
    what are your opinions on this? (my car is lava grey)

    I'd go for a Optic grill from your local Audi there about £120
    I have a Lava Grey A3 and the Optic grill does look good on the car just waiting to fit mine(lazy bumper needs spraying). If you need a chrome one let me know as i have a spare one but its S-line. Blazin and few others have Lava Grey A3 with Optic grill and looks soo much better sure they be willing to post picture. Or if you want i can do a quick search for a thread that a member lee done (when he couldnt pick between black or lava grey) there were a few lava grey a3 with optic grills? If that helps

    EDIT: IF you go on Post picture of your 8p a3 there a lava grey one on there with optic grill and here the link http://audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=65368&highlight=lava grey black

    Hope it helps

    I have seen the Lava Grey with black grill (almost bought it) and it looks fab. I have an Ibis White A3 with the same grill. :)

    Black optics grill looks much nicer IMO, plus there much more exclusive. A great mod all round!

    so no one recommends the black vinyl on the chrome surround then?
    how much is a new chrome grill surround?
    the missus would batter me if i spent £120 on the optik grill right now, our boilers just blown up, so need to find about £1100 sharpish, as no hot water or heating!!!

    Personally I'm not a fan of the optics grille. IMO it looks good on white and light silver but that's about all.

    If I was going to play around with mine I'd probably try for a matt silver finish.
