IMHO i think it looks like total crap. i understand that the plasti-dip stuff is nice because it wont get rock chips, but why couldn't you just paint it body color and clear coat the hell out of it? i'm going to sandblast it and paint it body color this weekend i think. i'll post pictures of before and after when i get a chance.

Now that will look weird. FWIW my grill was professionally sprayed when my car got painted and is super chipped up. paint + grill = fail

Ive seen numerous painted (body matched) grills that come out looking all chipped up after a while. I havent redone my plastidip since the day I did it and its still looking fresh

i second the plastidip. it looks good and stands up to chips much better than paint.

Thanks. I found a guy on ebay that was selling ones he bought from LLtek. Got 3 peices for like $25 shipped. 2 smaller ones and 1 larger sheet. It is ABS plastic and LLtek sells them for a little over $85 for 3 peices (don't mind what they list on thier website. call them and the price changes). There was a thread about 2 months ago in the B5 S4 section about it.

Edit: You have to dremel the crap out of the lower grill inserts, size, cut, and add (glue) the mesh yourself.

my car is silver so body color sort of defies the point.

+ a billion for plasti dip
