    I've been doing some digging but this seems to be a rare request, ive also checked vagcat but cant seem to come up with the right part. The part I'm looking for is the black plastic mould which holds the licence plate on the front grill. (Not a plate holder) The car is an 03-05 variation but I've face lifted to the 05-08 (Non-Sline). See below

    You can't quite make it out in the photo but the Licence plate is currently stuck to the actual grill with sticky tabs.

    Thanks for your help!

    That looks like a sport bumper I had which the grill had a fixed/moulded license backplate iirc, not separate, there are grills that support a plate holder as such, you sure your grill isn't a one piece?

    Yeah I believe the bumper is from a sport model but it seems that the "fixed/moulded" backplate is missing. Or perhaps I'm wrong and should be looking for a plate holder. I've took some better photos which might be able to help.

    Ah yes that's not the same grill as a normal sport like we had on our 2 at some point, you should be able to go into any dealer & order the insert, that's definitely missing that part.
