    yeah they come up on ebay every now and again but if they do keep the audi price in mind ie if they are charging £170 for a second hand one and its £255 for a new one then its not a good deal ,the optics grill is gloss black from what i can remmeber (they are on the a4 for defo as i saw one today)

    random thought, with the lowering, if someone had a set of S3 springs laying around, would they do pretty much the same job?

    Thanks for your help. Having a look around at black grille is it all of the grille that is gloss black or just the chrome.? what is now chrome sprayed gloss and the middle sprayed matt? or all of the grille gloss? sorry for the questions just need to get it right.
