    Is it possible to get one without a numberplate recess here in the UK?

    I have a bumper for an 05 - 08 I think it is, non sline single grill bumper to update the front of mine, but when it comes to the grill i am not sure what route to go yet as I would like to get a smoothed one made up or if they are readily available it would be easier! :)

    Ah ok thanks mate, how much are those ones?

    Did have a pic of an actual A3 with this front, but had to find one on google as I think its on my home comp.. but this is the sort that I meant :( Was hopeful that it's readily available lol
