      if they laser scan the part then fix it on the cad then it should be pretty good fitment.

      I think it will prolly cost around $15k min for the mold.

      So pennies for each one after the molds - so you'd have to sell 60 of them at $250 a piece to make your money back.

      Was thinking of taking mine off this winter and having it scanned. What do you think it would cost to do one off 3D prints.

      not even sure if u can print something that big. but i would say few thousand as it does require a lot of time on the machine.

      I probably would have gone with this OEM grill if it had been on ebay. My primary purpose was getting rid of the plate seperater.


      I am having serious thought's about this grill.

      Nice allroad! I guess I am still subscribed to this thread (since 2012, haha) and I upgraded to an a4 Avant a few years ago. Good to revisit some of these threads!
