Not a fan of the chrome grill on my silver e-tron and interested in painting or plasti-dipping the grill matte black. Has anyone done this or looked into it?

Cool, have you chosen a method (i.e. paint, plasti-dip)? Look forward to hearing how it turns out.

Hello all,

New to this forum, but looks like there is lots of great information!

I am finally going back into an A3 after five years driving a Q5 (BC, Canada). I don't take delivery until April due to a factory order. In the meantime, I wondered if there was anyone who actually got their grill changed to black. Love the idea of this, so would welcome any photos!

Thanks
Ferster

I personally did not do it myself, but I did have a guy who specializes in plastic dips and vinyl wrapping add a little style to my vehicle. He applied a satin vinyl wrap to the side mirrors and applied several layers of a matte resin to coat the chrome of the grill. While I do love the stock appearance and there is absolutely nothing lacking, I do feel the end result looks more aggressive (as well as the benefit of not permanent).
