    Hi All!
    I've been looking at replacement front Grilles. I quite like the look of the Black Edition or RS5 Grilles.
    Are these hard to fit?
    And if they came with front Parking sensors, would they be easily connected and set up to a non parking sensor equipped car?

    I've seen a B8 Black Edition Grille that comes with the PDC Front Sensors. I take it 2 off the sensors go in the grille, and 2 in the bumper.
    Are these easy to fit and set up?
    I still kind of prefer the RS4 Grille. Im suprised I havent seen any on UK cars yet!!!!

    So that must be two in the bumper and two in the grille. If it was just a case of plugging and and maybe coding I might go for it!

    i fitted the Black Edition grille to my S Line, am very pleased with it. It was a bit tricky but my mate helped. You have to remove the bumper which is the hardest bit.

    I had the fog light surrounds wrapped with Matt Black too as new Audi units were £60+ when I only needed the rings. Thinking of getting the window surrounds and roof bars wrapped too as the bars are only £130 each but £900 labour to fit. Why didn't I just buy a Black Edition in the first place. Doh

    Ronnie at Designed Elgin Designed Elgin | Facebook can do a carbon wrap. I saw his wrapping of a Smart car. Bloomin superb. Give him a shout mate. He can wrap just about anyting and can do coloured carbon wrap too. I think he can get white, red, black (off course) and some others. I plan to get my grill (he reckons it should be pretty easy), rear splitter and front splitter done in black carbon for protection as much as looks. He wanted to do the roof but i dont think it would look right tbh.

    Funnily enough I did think about carbon wrapped grille as I'm planning on getting a carbon boot lip spoiler. Thanks for letting me know about these places as not being from around here I really don't know!
