    i give mine a light scotch padding and three coats of matt black it looks sweet, only prob is you are suposed to be able to fit the s line badge so i have bought a new badge that is made to replace the standard s line badge in your grill and it doesnt seem to be compatable with the reccess on the fk grill for some reason has anyone taken there s line badge off and fitted it to there f k grill or not ?

    Cheers for replying. Metal mesh would look better? Either that or I'm gonna order the honeycomb one with no audi ring mounts and remove the black crossbars to make it look less busy before attaching the rings in a different manner.....suggestions?

    Can you please explain how to fit it (and all the badges etc..) - did you do it yourself and how long did it take ?

    Its pretty easy, Have to take the bumper off as the grille is clipped on to the bumper and you will need to prise the clips out there locating slots same as the badges as well. Once you get the bumper off you will see.

    Thought it might be. With two to follow, I can't really go wrong when I go about taking my front bumper off!
