I recently purchased an 05 V and the previous owner blacked out the grill and emblems is it possible to remove the black paint without harming the original paint underneath? The front bumper is also in rough shape anybody have an estimate of what getting it replaced/fixed would cost?

You could try mineral spirits, it won't hurt the original paint..

Grille looks to be the perfect candidate for media blast and typical finish that any powdercoater would use. From just the pic the bumper seems destined to a wrap. Millions of color options for both.
