    All black front grill

    Hi,
    I know there have been a few threads about the black grills (plastidip mods and black chrome OEM grills). I found this video on youtube and was wondering if anybody recognizes what kind of grill the V has.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hxp561yQPEQ

    The video is German and super lame, don't bother watching it. But 27s into the video there is a good shot of the V which shows that not only the grill is completely blacked out but also the grill frames (upper and lower) and the trim on the hood.

    I really like the looks and since my wagon is black I would like to get the same grill on it. Anybody knows who produces these? I doubt this is a modded car but have so far after several hours of searching not been able to find a similar grill that is not a DIY.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    I believe the grill on that V along with all the chrome has been painted.

    Plasti dip always a good alternative, did mine a week ago and I love it. Lots of compliments.

    It's between flat and regular black. They do have a glossifier. Actually, maybe even glossy straight out the can...
