Hi Guys,

Well ive had my first Bump, was my own fault, although enraged by a van who almost smashed into me, didnt notice someone slam on infront of me.. "Sits and eats his humble pie" Its my first ever bump too, real gutted its happened in my best car to date.. lol

Anyhows, wasnt too bad, i certainly came off worse. Im now the proud owner of a cracked (in 3 places) large front chrome grill. Im praying to god you can get these not with the bumper, or am i about to weep when i try and get it repaired?

The large air dam under the numberplate has got some smashed plastic too, hopefully that wont be too hard to repair.

So if anyone couild fill me in on the repair situation of these chrome grills id really really appreciate it.

Ill get some pics up when i get home

Cheers folks

Sorry to hear this...you must be gutted.

I would try vagparts or DSGwagen. They can usually source absolutely anything VAG much cheaper than dealers.

Ah mate, could have been much worse. Maybe the ideal opportunity to look at a carbon one or a different colour maybe? If your not into that sort of thing, I'm sure they are widely available. Glad it's only slight cosmetic :wink:

I'd say a lucky man by the looks of that light damage. Could've been way worse. Hope you get sorted m8

Gutted for ya mate.

The part is available seperately. Try hunting for a second hand one off someone who has gone for a CF grille.

Just be thankful the bonnet and wings are OK.
