    Hi
    I have got an A3 S Line sportback 2l tdi 2006.
    I want to take the grill off and replace it with a new black grill.
    I have phoned Audi and they dont seem to be able to help me or they simply just cant be bothered.
    Does anyone know what black grill would fit (part number etc) or does anyone have one for sale that would fit my car.

    thanks

    terry

    Give them your chassis number and tell them you want the black (optic) s-line grille.
    Or just pm Dave @ Stoke Audi and he chould give you a price and the part number.
