    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.

    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
