    I've seen worse, but I've also seen significantly better, like for example, the standard bumper and grill.

    Not my cup of tea either, something just does not look right about it, i think the top line of the grille vs the line of the bonnet makes it look like the big grille is an after thought. I would save the money for something else.

    Dont do it!

    Stick with the original bumper, maybe mod or get an aftermarket grill.

    The look just doesn't go with the car for me..... It's like 8P front end 8L rear end..... But each to there own mate if you like it..... Then don't let people's decisions on here sway you....

    Not my cup of tea.

    Either stick with an original S3 bumper or do the RS4 bumper conversion.

    You own an 8L, why make it look like an 8P?

    IMO no, don't do it, spend it on go faster mods, servicing, suspension, brakes etc.

    Steer well clear, it looks sort of ok in pic, but in reality they're crap.
