    sub is indeed correct no wiring no change of fogs, you will need a bonnet and fog grills, they look the same but are different on the single grill model

    Yup Phil is correct, bonnets on Ebay are like hens teeth but you may be lucky. TPS are cheaper than Audi. I also think you will need new grills, I have seen these on Ebay but they arnt too dear from Audi or even better TPS again. Good luck doing the conversion. Thanks for the kind words, I loved doing it too! Just need side skirts now......

    Hey Sarah,
    Newbie to this thread, but I just bought myself 2005 Audi A3 2.0 TDI in Mauritus Blue. (split grille)

    Absolutely loving what you have done to yours.!!!!!!!!!!!
    It's inpsired me to start modding mine!!!!!

    First plans are nice and easy. I'm fitting an RNS-E to the interior and also gonna try the black paint between the split grill and finish off with chrome trim. Eventually plan to convert to facelift grille wen I saved enough pennies.

    I'm also debating on the brushed aluminium wing mirrors at the mo......

    I'll update the thread with pics.. wen I get done.

    Hiya Lee

    Your car sounds great, and what an ace colour!!!!! lol. I love the mauritus blue.

    Thanks for the words, i'm loving it too. Your mods sound good, and the grill one is a nice quick and cheap starter. Certainly helped me while I waited for the conversion. I was goin gto go, alu mirrors but was worried about them being pinched tbh plus I like them matching my alloys now. But give it a go esp if the grill you use has the chrome trim to it.

    Pics will be good.

    thank you very much. Ground clearance is good but mines not sitting as low as most. Although it did catch a high kerb the other day, oops, so its off at the mo! But generally wasnt an issue.

    I am now thinking that until i can afford to do the single grill conversion i would like to do this temporary mod to mine as it looks awesome, can sarah or lee or anyone else tell me where they got all their materials from? eg what ill need? glue, paint, where the chrome trim is from? and also if the part of the top grill that you have colour coded was it to match the grill? or the section that the number plate is attatched to? if that makes sense :S

    I got all mine materials from Halfords. I used some sanding pads, primer, Satin Black Paint and the chrome strip. Its a tag thinner but not really noticeable once on. You need to paint the top grills lower chrome edge black to match in with the bumper so it matches. My grill was a satin finish anyway as I use a plastic trim cleaner on it so it all fitted in well. Its easy to do and didnt take too long, good luck and show pics when done.

    Hey Clayton,
    The strip comes with self adhesive from Halfords. It is ample strong enough to keep the chrome on. Yeah like Sarah says, get some pics up, wen ur done. Enjoy the mod, I was well chuffed with my result.

    another quick question please, did you remove the top grill to spray the bottom part of the crome? how many coats of primer/paint did you use? how long did you leave each to dry? just a rough idea of how long the mod will take to complete?
    much appreciated

    Hey Clayton,
    I didn't take off the grill, I just spent a while getting it all masked up to leave a perfect straight line so all that was exposed was the chrome. I sanded down that and between the two grilles first to get something for the primer to bind to. I then put on the primer, which took about 4-5 coats. The best advice is to take it slow and not get any drips forming. I would say about 15 minutes between each coat to slowly build up. I then left the primer for 2 hrs to dry out. I had some scran then returned and again with the black. Nice and steady till I got an even good finish. Takes a few hours 5-6 but done in a day no worries. That worked for me..

    Similar to what Lee has put. I didnt remove the grill, was easy enough doing it on the car once masked off. But mine was done in the spring/summer so the primer/paint dried pretty fast. Only took the part of the day and all done.

    Yup, I think they would suit very well. I looked at these a while back. I really like them. Go for it! How was the holiday? Good time had?

    yeah they are nice wheels and for only 299 for just the rims too cant be bad as i'll be sticking to 18" as 19" get expensive with tyres so 18" for me , yeah was brill thanks didnt wnt to come back it was on average 32o'c blazing sunshine everyday and 17o'c at night i also saw some very nice audi's out there the best was a ABT tuned Q7 it was awesome it was something like 380bhp from a 3.0tdi and i also saw some nice modded S3's
