    i'm sure it can be done, but if you're going black grille just paint that black as well. would look menacing :eyebrows:

    to be honest i think it will make it look like the s-line front too much then. i actually dislike my fk grille now so really want to look for an oem s3 grill too

    I'd be wary mate, it was probably someone local to you who knew that it was sealed on, not bolted.

    Either that or it may have been the person you bought it off. That's another reason I haven't bought my RNS-E yet, because I'm worried that someone will nick it - maybe even the person I bought it off

    That's crazy, but these Audi parts sell for a lot so it comes as no surprise that thieves try their luck with snatching anything they can get their hands on.

    Guy that I bought the spoiler from does not know where I live I always try to pick things up personally and pay cash. With written receipt. I have CCTV aswell but in this instance it was not facing my car. Ad my driveway is quite big. My car isn't always in the same place with the amount of people on the drive. My brother got his e46 cabby tank in the way most of the time lol

    Yeap thats the problem with buying kit of say ebay, they could quite easily come along & nick it again, as for the colour, just goto any bodyshop & they will have untold swatches to go through to find the colour, dont need audi for this at all.
