Default Fog light bumper cover fell off






Hi Everyone, brand new to the site. Purchased a 2018 S5 sportback and hit a tire on the turnpike. Noticed that my fog light bumper cover is now missing! Went to dealership and they want 500 bucks for a small piece of plastic! Has anybody had this happen?? Any feedback or suggestions are welcome!

Looks better now. I'd fill in both sides with black grill mesh.

looks better now? How? Iím missing a cover on my car and canít find a replacement online. The dealer is holding me hostage to spend 500 bucks to replace a small piece of plastic. Iím going to drive back to the area where I hit the tire to see if I can find it on the side of the road.

I suggest you look elsewhere.

You can certainly do better than $500!!

I say it looks better because the car has a bit too much chrome on it for my taste. That's why a lot of people on here are wrapping their chrome in vinyl and looking forward to the black optics package. I agree that $500 is an insulting markup. Use the part number to shop around. If you don't find a replacement at a suitable price I'd use it as an opportunity to customize.

Default Black optics

Is the black optics package available for 2018 S5 sportback yet?

Default Happened to me as well



Same thing happened to me a few months ago. At first I thought it was something I did but when I took it to the dealer they said it was stolen. You could see the scratches where they pried it out along woth the broken flooring underneath.

I spent the 500 because I just wanted it repaired...they cut me a deal that they would fix the flooring that was broken as well.

good luck man, it suck.

What you're really saying is, there's at least one, slightly used, for sale on ebay he might be able to buy.

In all seriousness, WTF? The fact that was targeted and stolen tends to make me think that someone lost theirs and said I'll take this one vs. buying one. It can't be that common of a part for quick turn-around sale. But then again, trying to rationalize and/or think like a petty thief is something I am not able to do.

Idk man, itís fairly frustrating. According to my dealer itís actually quite common place. It is happening more frequently with the B9s because theyíre still fairly new and not as common. Iím in the northeast so maybe itís more common there? I was an idiot and parked on the side of the road in NYC.....letís just say I wonít do that again.

It's long been the case that these grills are removable from the outside, since b8 era at least. And equally long that people have been stealing them off other cars.

Audi is retarded and should be at least attaching these things with panel screws from the inside.
