    Last night I fitted a Rs style front grille which I think looks great. The only thing is that it came in a gloss black finish so the fog surrounds now look a little bit strange being matt.

    Has anyone found gloss replacements or even a mesh fog light delete to match the grill?

    Or, has anyone painted / wrapped the surrounds in gloss black?

    I was thinking to have my b8.5 ones sprayed gloss.

    I'm also considering spraying my existing ones and tinting the fog lights.

    Will get a quote this afternoon and decide if it'll be worth it.

    I did manage to find some mesh ones but with the fog light surround on American ebay but they were 175 dollars plus shipping.

    Yea that's a bit pricey for what it actually is. I'm also not sure I like the gaps in the mesh for the fogs. Because we have fogs lights might look pants but I've not looked behind. If I can get the oem fogs sprayed for 50ish I'd be happy. Then get them tinted and done.

    Dropped off the surrounds at the bodyshop today for collection in about 10 days time.

    I'll post some pics once they're refitted.

    I like the look of the car without the surrounds but would have to do something clever to hide the stuff behind if went for meshing the entire opening. Would look smart tho.

    Only £30 for the pair. Barely more expensive than DIY rattle cans but the guy is an old acquaintance and looks after me when I want bits doing

    Is that artificial grass? If not, it’s insanely neat :)

    It's artificial grass although it looks much greener in the picture than it does in real life.

    Cutting grass is definitely not my idea of fun so it's an ideal solution.

    Love the grill! Been looking at that version with the Quattro badge at the bottom. How is the quality?

    Looks awesome .my Matt rs grill arrives next week. I’ve been looking at mesh fog grills also but will wait to see what the grill looks like first.
    I’ve decided not to put Audi rings on but have a red Quattro badge. How did you stick yours on? Thanks Andy

    Quality and fit is good. Was a PITA of a job to install tho.

    The Quattro writing is part of the grill so I didn't have to do anything to it.
