Default Valence grilles

Iím looking for the grilles that cover the 3 openings in the lower valence of the front bumper on my 2000 A8. I wonder if your 98 has the same grilles as my 2000. If so, do you have all 3 grilles?

Nice of you to do this for your friend, parting out isn't easy but good news is there is a better way to do it... I have being selling parts and parting out stuff I come across for over two years. I used ebay for a wile but it is very expensive and there are major restrictions that will keep you from selling all your parts (plus you will fork over a large % of your sales for it ... it has been up to 18% for me).

Craigslist means an inbox full of the same questions over and over and 5% of the requests being actual offers, but still you are going to be wasting tons of time on unqualified offers sifting through to find the few that are serious.

I have listed two late models on PartingOut.com a site I found on another forum and it works much better if you are parting out a whole car. One big reason - you don't have to list every part. I list the top ten parts like I usually would but then the buyers use the Buyer Listed Part tool to list the other parts I didn't list that they want.

I have sold about ~$600 worth and have sold a sun visor, console, door henge, trim and it cracks me up every time. Never did I think i would sell those little parts but when buyes can list it themselves and then just say I'll give you X$ for it... ok! Illl take it!

Anyways trying to help us all out and get off the ebay craiglist trains cause they don't work and cost way to much time and money

like I said, its a ton of work to part out a car. Wouldn't it be nice if all these messages of "do you have," "what's the interior" "how much" all answered themselves and these guys with part requests listed the parts themselves and you got an offer that you just accepted or denied?

once you get these part request filled I would put this on PartingOut.com to sell all the other 100 parts but without all this hassle

good luck
