    Check my avatar for my metallic ice silver S5 with the grill painted black. My RS5 grille should arrive any day now and I will post more pics when I have it installed. Black is the way to go for sure!

    I would do black for sure. It will tie much easier with all the other black bits on the car and will pop more. Will look really nice

    Alright, I think you guys have helped me decide. I appreciate it. Gonna go black. Love that pic of your silver S5 HP Hungry. So now the real question is do i get the OEM one for like 1100 or cheap knockoff for 100-300? lol

    Gunmetal.

    Personally, from afar, I cannot make out the intricacies and details of a black grille.... of.. ANY black grille on any car for that matter.
