    I have changed my badges to black, I think the front looks odd, I think it would look better with the grill sprayed gloss black. Let me know what you guys an girls think.

    you can do anything you want but tbh, it looks wayward. I'm a purist so go black edition or keep it OEM. Silver color looks good OEM or black edition. the rear s3 badge gotsta go

    The front looks odd as you've got the gunmetal colour grill, personally I'd of left of left the badge silver on the front, alternatively you could spray the whole grill & surround black.

    I tried changing mine to black but didn't like it so went back to the original look. I definitely prefer silver rings on the front but if you like it then go with it.

    I have been thinking about this also the last couple of days coincidentally... Mines also a silver S3 and the grill is grey/silver and the fog light grills are black so I'm thinking of getting the grill plasti dipped... Is that the best and cheapest way to do it? Then there's the decision on whether to keep the front audi badge silver or not...?

    Original chrome rings and black grill surround 👍 lovely contrast, I'd leave the rear rings chrome too I've never liked them black

    Hi mate! :racer:

    I've got some plastidip (matt) if you're up for a go. If you don't like it, it comes off just about as quick as it goes on. And if you do, there's a 'glossifier' you can spray over the top - tho I've no idea how that looks.

    Anybody any thoughts as to whether it's best to take the grill off (how?), or just mask-off?

    Just mask off, you will need to remove the full bumper if you want to take the grill off.

    Well for me the black optics grill is over £300 for the 8p2.
    A can of plastidip is £25 so I chose the can :)
