Default Black Optics Grill Removal

I have been searching for a 2018 audi a6 and the one I found that meets most of my needs has the black optics package. Im not a fan of the black grill on a darker color car so I was wondering if its possible and what is the cost to remove the grille and put on the chrome regular grille. In the alternative should I just ask the dealership to do it as part of the purchase? Thanks

When I was shopping around I ran into a similar issue. I think I was quoted $4-500 in labor by the dealership, and that was if the grill was OEM and had no fitment issues. The OEM grill is like $1000 or something ridiculous. I asked them to include it with the purchase and they said no. You should definitely ask. I contemplated doing the install myself, but ended up not getting the car.

I ended up buying a 2018 with exactly what I wanted, and had it shipped.
