    That looks good. Let me know how easy it is - I may do my S-Line. If yu dont mind me asking - how much and where did you get the Optic Grill?

    Looks good but takes away the aggressive front a bit too much for me which really makes the car stand out over others.

    Black not the best colour for it really, looks better on white or lighter colours.

    I agree. A silver a3 went past me the other day and it looked fantastic due to the grill being shinier than my yearly report. Best on light cars for sure.

    I like it - looks very stealthy !! Anyone know where to get a matching black Audi 4 ring from ?

    Or a black Audi ring with a black number plate plinth on the standard grill might look good ??

    cheers

    Can't get black rings anywhere. Just have to spray them yourself, I spent months looking for some.

    Now I actually like that!

    Opposite of your original post though cause it would only look good on black!!

    Apologies but due to minimal time and lack of a camera at the time...I could not take any DIY pics:sorry: It was quite straight forward though with the bumper having to be removed...I'm quite pleased with the end result.

    I always wanted a red H for my old CTR as a brake light and now I'd love the red rings! Suprised noone has made any yet.

    Black optic grill plus the original chrome surround would look good as well

    Well smart!

    Just need to change the indicator bulbs to remove the fried egg effect now (would reecommend Philips Silver Vision)!
