Just a quick question...

My 3.0 TDi Quattro Sport (built June 07) has a gloss black grille.

In my dealer this week, there was a 2.7 TDi (unregistered, but it didn't have the 3G MMI, think it was a Sport model) where the grille was a 'sparkly' grey colour.

Is this a subtle change on all A5s since 2007, or do I have black due to the Quattro / Engine / Sport selection?!

It's not material, just curious!

I have the same car, delivered 16/01/2009 (ordered 16/09/2008 by some1 else, I got cancelled order in Nov)

Mine has a gloss black aswell.....

Sometimes the colour of the car depicts the colour of the grille. What colour was it?? & what colour is yours??

Ah right - mine is Meteor Grey, the one in the dealership was a solid red.

It is to do with engine size 3.0 & above get high gloss grill other engines get the stone grey finish.

Check with your dealership's Parts department. I stumbled across that photo last year on a German forum. I believe the part number is 8T00713602ZZ (at least that's what the person had posted).

What do I think? Well, if you like it, then go for it. It's not a look that I prefer, though.
