    Guys and Girls

    What options (and opinons) have i got for changing my split grill (03-05 preface lift) i dont want to change it for the facelift as i like the split grill.

    but I found this on ebay.... FK Audi A3 03-05 8P Black Front Upper Debadged Grill | eBay

    Is this any good in quality? will it look naff?

    Or im thinking of just spraying the chrome surrounds as i hate chrome bits. does anywhere sell new surrounds in black to match the existing?

    thanks

    Why don't you just get the chrome bits sprayed? And then order a black audi badge? .... that's what i would do. I'm not a fan of non-oem parts, bad experiences with them in the past.

    Debadged grill is a no for me, plastidip the chrome on your existing grill IMO. Like this ...

    You can get the grill wrapped in 3m and get the audi badges matte black off ebay, like mine

    Standard cupra front splitter, not expensive at all. Just needs a the lugs trimming and screws to attach it.
