    I've had this since Feb and have only just gotten around to fitting it.

    The centre section is satin black and it has the optics frame. I have yet to fit the S Line badge.

    Comments good or bad are both welcome, although I and more importantly the wife both like it :)

    good to hear you like it... thats the important thing.

    Its not got anything to it for me tho... kinda looks like its come out the factory unfinished?

    If I was going for the dark destroyer sort of look tho... this would be more like it.

    Suits your black car to a 'T'
    Agree with Kontraband regarding the 'interceptor' look
    If you and the wife are happy with the look its all that matters :thumbsup:

    It does look a bit " heavy " , but it should lighten up a bit with your S-Line badge and plate....i like it.

    Was there any reason you didn't go for the OEM optic grill?

    I went for this as I really wanted something different to the normal Audi look, personally I would prefere the mesh to be closer to the RS4 style honeycombe and if I could have got the brushed alloy look to match the roof rails that would have been great, but as it is I like :)

    quite tough and moody looking, gives some edge to the overall SB shape.

    I like the clean plate holder but to be honest too much black on black for me

    It was too bad to fit, probably 2 hours start to finish but I reckon just over an hour should do it now.
