      OFF EBAY NOW!!! $350 shipped!
      Here is a unique RARE item! Have not seen another one!
      2011 Audi A8 Factory Grill in Matte Black or Semi Gloss Black. (pretty sure 2010 1/2 to 2012 is the same)It is a plug and play grill. Unless you want to take the matte emblem out and replace with the chrome or whatever. OR you have your quattro emblems and such. All the chrome and the factory Audi logo included and has been painted black.

      Pretty sure it is the same as an S8 but you will need to confirm it or ask me to measure anything for you. Here is the story: I purchased this grill Damaged. I repaired and prepped all the black plastic and chrome pieces and refinished it in Matte Black.
      Materials used:

      The factory black plastic base of the grill I used 3M Automix 5885 Bumper/Plastic repair
      The chrome was reattached and repaired with a rigid fiberglass matte. The 5885 cracked considering how thin the plastic trim was.
      Once repaired and prepped I used PPG DPX801 Universal Plastics Adhesion Promoter to help it all bond.
      PPG Primer was then applied.
      Sanded, prepped again
      All sealed with PPG ESC67 sealer with a flex additive
      Basecoat black with PPG Envirobase Waterborne which is the exact same product that is factory on the surface of your Audi.
      Clearcoat with PPG DCU2021 clearcoat and added PPG SU4985 Universal Matting Clear additive at 50% shine.

      This is a used grill. Please make sure this will fit your car. Upon purchase, I highly recommend this to be professionally installed. It is merely plastic and could break if forced unknowingly.


      I have this at a buy it now and make an offer so you can throw out some offers. This Grill is $600 plus from the dealer. I am also adding $15 for shipping due to ebay and paypal fees. It will arrive it the original VW/ AUDI replacement box.


      PLEASE PLEASE, hit me with any questions or requests. I have 100% feedback for a reason.


      And Finally, within REASON, I will stand behind my work. If it is product failure I will work with you to repair it. If you drop it or cant park your A8 very well, I won't fix that for free.
