    Can an S3 grille be fitted to an A3?

    I would quite like to have an S3 front grille on my 2001 A3. Does anyone know if the S3 grille fits the facelift model A3 or can be made to fit with relative ease??

    BTW s'damn quiet in my office. Have sweet FA to do.

    Cheers!

    Unfortunately the S3 grille is much bigger than the A3 grille... about an inch in height! and its a different shape also, so you cant get it to fit. Alot of aftermarket bumpers like my RS3 one, and a few otehrs use the S3 grille and not the A3 grille. There are plenty of aftermarket A3 grilles out there... some better than others.

    I had to make a snap decision on this one before I managed to get an anwer from the forum... And yep, Rich is dead right... Also it means if anyone wants one for their S3 or aftermarket bumper, I've got a complete S3 grille sitting here still in the bag it came from Ingolstadt in. PM offers if anyone's interested (I think I paid something like 38/40 for it).

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Yes you can fit it to an A3, but not with the standard bumper...
