    Yeah I had to take the bumper off and also removed the grill. Just used a satin black rattle can to paint it. Used a plastic primer and also took some sanding down with wet and dry to make sure the paint sticks to where chrome used to be.

    Great colour change on the grill, suits the front end well.
    Been thinking about doing the grey looking lower spoiler black on my S3.

    Great change, looks spot on mate.

    Black grills look great on dolphin grey IMO!

    Looking really well mate, front end looks mean. I painted a grill black on my 1st s line few years ago. Looked good was got stone chipped to death so next a3 it came with optics and is miles better, so only had a genuine optics since so just be careful of stone chips. It's a lot cheaper than a optics though good effort.

    the difference being about 210 quid between an OEM black grille and a can of spray paint and some wet and dry !
