    I think your handiwork has sealed the deal with my thoughts about buying an RS4 front grille as these will match it nicely. Where did you get the mesh stuff from?

    The only thing i found hard was because the surround has a few bends and arches to it so trying to get it right takes some time

    That is normally because access is required, used to be for towing point, forgotten if B8 has that there. I've done that a few times with previous cars, though I sprayed the wire mess.

    Anything that keeps stones, filter tips and beech leaves out can't be bad! (oh and receipts)
