    Is the long piece of black/grey plastic (?) at the front and top of the engine bay, where the top of each headlight bolts onto referred to as the slam panel? If not, what is it called?

    Thanks

    Thanks for your responses gents. The panel shown in that ebay auction looks likes its made from steel, whereas mine is definitely hard plastic, or at least the part above the headlights is. The reason I ask is because I need to replace the part, and I was hoping it wasn't the slam panel and just a bit of plastic wedged on top of it!

    The part on that auction is plastic. VAG call it a lock carrier also.
    It is indeed the whole front panel that the radiator etc mounts to.
