    Fitted my new Matt black grill the other day....in terrible weather!

    Got it delivered from Germany for under £20. Thought it must be a mistake. Bargain!

    Fits pretty well. Not Oem quality but I didn't expect it to be at that price.

    Yeah I'm sure that's the one I got, same price anyway

    I wanted a matte finish and new mine would come with one cause a3_sline_tdi had ordered and fitted his already

    Yes that's the one I ordered and yes it looks glossy there but arrived Matt.

    I thought about spraying it but decided against it as you often get stone chips.

    Will take some close up pics when the weather is decent and I have time and add them to this thread. But definitely worth £20 or so, cheaper than painting your existing grill :)

    Mines not loose. I didn't even spray mine matte black, it came like it is and it looks perfect enough so went on. I'm happy with the outcome too

    You can get the sline badge off eBay which fits the FK grille, have a look at mine without and 1 with the sline badge on. See if you want one back on or not. My car is fully debadged so I'm going to leave it off

    I bought a black and silver when I fitted my sline bumper last year.

    Both arrived damaged, but usable.
    They refunded me fully, Inc delivery, and didn't want the grilles back. So I sold the black one, after deciding it was too matte for my liking, and used the chrome one.

    As said, eBay badges aren't a direct fit, but do fit with a little work.

    Definitely a bargain, and good service from them FK too.

    Will see how the finish lasts on mine. Doesn't look like its coated to be honest. Just black plastic.

    Had a clip on drivers side for badge to fix to. I don't have any badges so haven't used it. Left it there just in case... :)
