    Hi Guys,
    Can you S3 owners confirm if the chrome surround on the airvent is metal or just chromed plastic?

    I was thinking of upgrading to the s3 vents for 2 reasons :)

    1) they look damn nice
    2) to make it less black in my car :)

    Can anyone confirm...

    thanks

    I've not looked that closely and IIRC £60 each from a dealer, I'd try vagparts to see if they can do a better price.

    I think they are plastic, they feel quite solid though.

    I like them but I read a review of the A3 Cabriolet and the reviewer said they looked cheap!

    Assuming the cab ones are the same.
