I have some small damage in my grille that seems like it could be fixed with a filler. Anyone in here have experience with body work and a product suggestion or YouTube video suggestion?

You judge repair/paint work in Feet.

I used windshield stuff. The guy who replaced my i3 windshield stepped on some plastic there. Asked if he would try it. Worked perfectly. My wife's old 2006 plastic needed repair so I bought a tube and again worked like a champ. Of course clean first.

You can admit to use you ran into a post.

Have you priced out replacement plastic parts?
The price of the part is the least of it. The entire frontend needs to come off to install it from the backside. Brilliant design.


Had ours painted white, two weeks after getting the car. The biggest part was getting it out to paint.

If you're trying to glue the pieces back together, then RTV should work. If you're trying to fill a hole left by a missing piece, I'd think you'd have a hard time getting the shape/texture right. Epoxy would probably work better. Or a plastic body filler. Either way you'll have some work to do to get it smoothed out and matching the existing contours. Good luck!
