    Was never a big fan of the chrome surrounds on the grill... so after seeing another S4 (Nogaro Blue) owner with his painted, I did the same to my Dolphin.

    Had the surround on the upper grill paint matched while using the OEM "blackout" surround for the lower.

    Had the grill/mesh inserts painted a flat black (OEM S4 color is a graphite kind of finish which kind of matched w/the Dolphin... made it look like the entire grille was all one color) to give it some contrast.

    What do you guys think? I personally like it :)

    looks great i think. flat black contrast looks good on ANY european car. i have a white jetta (mk 4) and i did all my rubstrips and my grill black. you need the contrast to break up the car a little. your b6 looks great.

    word. my gf has an 03 b5.5 A6. it's awesome. i was cruising around in it last night. had a blast. only problem is it's autotragic. my next car will be a B5 A4 i think. here in buffalo, Quattro is almost a necessity. unless i get my job i'm lined up for then i'll have an S4. but that probably won't happen. oh well euro pain styles 4 life :bigthumb:

    That looks sick. I would love to see how it looks with some black HRE's and dark tint.
