I'm thinking about getting one for my car, but would like to get any feedback from someone that may have it...how is the quality, fit and finish...and indeed a pic if you have it...thanks... :)

My Car is a Euro Pearl effect Black Magic with no chrome so I thin it would look good...

Is this what you're looking for? I think on a nice black B5 you might want to have it paint matched, but I think these grills look best on the black :b5: 's.
Thanks :bow:

Yea that is the look I'm after...

I'll look into having it paint matched, but I'm curious about the fit and quality of the grill, I've been quoted 100euro for a grill here in Ireland...

I have one. My B5.5 is Pine Green and I think it looks fine. I do think it looks better on the darker colors though. It's a pretty good match to the stock grill IMO. Now the chrome version... that's a totally different story.

Very nice...
Did you paint it at all, or is it as it came...

it is as it came. the finish is a bit smoother than the other black trim but still flat in color so it's a decent match.
