    As the title how easy is it to retro fit the matt aluminium styling pack to a FL RS3

    Has anyone got exploded bumper layouts for the FL showing the part numbers or can anyone let me have the Matt aluminium insert part numbers

    I can find the part numbers for a PFL but not FL

    Would the bumpers have to be removed to swap the inserts?

    Costs involved?

    I can get you exploded views tomorrow morning.......and part numbers

    The front bumper has to come off to swap the grill over, the bottom 'blade' is in 3 parts (middle piece, L/H & R/H outer Blade pieces) the bottom piece of the bumper is screwed/clipped and needs to be separated to access/swap over parts.

    The Rear exhaust surrounds are clipped into the diffuser.

    Cost wise from memory the 2 blades are £120 each the straight piece that runs across under the grill is £100

    The Grill is £900 +

    Rear exhaust trims are around £130 each

    Great thanks

    Do I need the grill?

    I have the standard (aluminium) grill with standard painted bumpers

    Sorry just to clarify then if I swap the blades and rear diffuser parts leaving the standard grill in place I will have the Matt aluminium styling pack?

    Audi (robbing s...s, but lovable rogues) want £800 for this but a rough estimate for the bumper/diffuser parts is coming in at £600?

    Pretty much as you’ll already have the ali window trim if you have the ali grill surround.

    So yes change the 3 pieces on the front bumper and the 3 pieces on the rear and your pretty much there.

    Not cheap but doable.

    What about just wrapping the blades and bumper? I am sure that would be less assuming they have a Matt aluminum wrap.

    Considered this as well removing and having them painted. Scared of stone chip damage to wrap, would want them removed for wrapping anyway so edges could be tucked over and no risk of a slipped knife mark

    I've been considering this too.
    Would be good to see the exploded views T-800 if you could provide as stated would be very helpful.
    Might consider only adding the front centre lower alu blade see how it looks without the left and rights....

    Looking at the exploded views it's a shame the front blade middle section is not as wide as I'd hoped.
    I'd quite like the front blade to be alu but not including the brake air scoops left and right !!

    So about the best discount I can get is 10% before VAT on these parts, is that the best I'm going to get?

    Yes that’s about as good as it gets I think without having a family friend or working for them. I have always found I can get a 5-10% discount on any parts just by asking for the best price.

    Sorry to revive an old thread but I’m looking to go the other way like yourself mate and retrofit Black Optics.

    Have you had your front bumper surround & windows wrapped here?

    It looks spot on in the pictures.
