    Mesh front grilles for A3

    What are my options?
    Found somewhere I can get a Kamei one from for about Ł88 - can anyone beat this price?
    Saw one on an A3 at the Ring and it looked quite good.

    However its a debadged grille so I'd need a stick on Audi 4-ring badge as I don't like the badgeless look.
    Anyone got any part numbers for a suitably sized Audi badge?

    Now going for an RS style lower front valance from Reiger, although its the more subtle RS2 style rather than the RS4 ones which are a bit OTT for me on this car.
    Its not arrived yet and I need a decent bodyshop in the southeast (Surrey would be best) to fit and spray it.
    Any recommendations would be great.

    The reason I'm doing this is for road safety reasons. More road presence means less lane hoggers blocking me (its too much of a Q car at the moment). [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Still considering Oettinger, any links to Zender stuff?

    Ideally don't want to pay over Ł100 for a flimsy bit of plastic. Not on top of getting the front spoiler sprayed and fitted.

    By suitably sized, you mean similar to the original?
    Well original part numbers are
    8D9 853 742 2ZZ - Rear
    8D9 853 605 2ZZ - Front

    2ZZ = Colouring, Chrome

    Slap the original on! Job done! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]
