    I purchased a lower rear valance for my bumper quite a while back and due to various reasons which i wont go into.............. it needs spraying again. The top section of it will obviously be done to match my paint work, however the lower bit is grey plastic and that came with numerous large scratches so i will need to do something with that as well and was thinking on painting it. And opinions on the colour i should go with? The car is ebony black.

    thanks

    Very quick google search shows this:
    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/new-a3...-paint-code-s-line-rear-valance-grey-bit.html

    I would probably stick to the original colour if you dont have a 'colour theme' going on with the rest of the exterior.... you could go wild and try a white or something but if its the standard Sline valance then i personally dont see anything to notice there... if you changed it to the S3 rear diffuser however then there are some more options...
