    Hi people,

    I have got quite a few scratches and cracks in my front grille so I am thinking of getting it changed but I need to ask a couple of questions on here first?

    Should I get a all black grille, another silver one ( like I have on at the moment ) Or another type of grille?

    What do you guys think?

    Here are a couple of pics of my car so what do you think would work best when replacing it?

    If anyone has any ebay links or grilles for sale please let me know.

    All help and feedback are welcomed.

    Cheers

    Bailey

    I think the black optics grille looks good on an akoya silver car. Here's a pictures of it on mine for comparison:

    S3 chrome grill looks good. N8's car has this and has replaced the S3 logo with the S Line one. looks great

    I'm liking the black grille on silver - would be set off well with some black alloys as well

    Ordered straight from the dealership but you can get a similar Matt black one from FK in Germany.

    In my opinion don't bother with an FK one. I bought one and the quality of the plastic is rubbish and didn't look very good atall so I took it straight back off and bought a genuine one, miles better!

    Might as well facelift the front end to a sline or s3. It will look miles better.

    I actually like the stock chrome front grille on your car better, oddly. :uhm:

    I know there are plenty of piccies but just wanted to see people ideas, I think I may end up face lifting to S Line front end with black grille as it does look sweet.

    Yeah I know Im posing on that picture around my friends house haha!
