    Hello
    I've just taken purchase of a 58 A5 3.0 TDI sport. It's got the gloss black grill obviously, but I've just noticed( when changing out the fog bulbs to 'extreme brilliance') that the surrounds are matte with a honeycomb effect!
    I'm now pondering which way to solve my OCD, change the grill to honeycomb or change the fog surrounds to match the slotted gloss black grill?
    I'll be honest I'm thinking the fogs but would appreciate any views and options!
    Just a point that it's a cheapest fix as the variety of other mods rattling around my head are probably of greater importance but nevertheless?

    Just a quick addition to this.
    decided to paint my fog inserts gloss black to match my grille and I will say without hesitation that A, I've done a cracking job and B, they look a million dollars!!
    I was gonna do before and after but been too busy but trust me, it is a must!
    Took 3 days. 2 coats of primer, cut back, 3 coats of gloss black, keyed, 2 coats of clear lacquer and an exact match to the grill!
    Uber happy even if 99% of people won't even twig on!
