    i like the gloss, but i reckon you should have kept the numberplate surround in black as well. i wasn't a fan of the badgeless grille but i thought the single grille effect looked good.

    oh well i'll reserve proper judgement until i see the car in person tomorrow. look forward to meeting you.

    you to mate ! kind of feel that if my car is a split grill then leave it that way and make it look nice if that makes sense , i think painting in a double grille looks tacky imo

    I heard a rumour that what is now known as the "split" grille, actually started off life with an 'h' in place of the 'pl'.
    Dunno, it's just what i've heard. :ninja:


    They can look alright though (as per your photos). I used to have a spilt grille A3 but always preferred the single. I used to hate it when one pulled up next to me and it made mine look so dated.
    Needless to say I traded it in for a single grille version, partly for the look and partly because I wanted a quicker car (which wasn't a 3.2).

    Had: Split grille 2.0FSi

    Wanted: Single grille A3 which is quicker

    Ended up with: Single grille 2.0T

    .......but "failed on all counts"??? :think:

    Another nugget of wisdom from you, I see. :lmfao:
