    Lol, tell me about it, lad. I had already bought and butchered an RS6 one off Ebay to see if I could 'make' it fit, but it was a total no go unfortunately and had to bite the bullet and order one from Dave at Stoke. Have to say, the feeling I got when I saw it fitted today made me forget the price of the holder! x

    Not gonna keep you waiting any longer folks, lol. As I said yesterday the RS3 grille fits perfectly into the 8P3 bumper without ANY modifications, all the fixings are exactly the same etc. Unlike the normal A3/S3 facelift grilles though, it doesn't have any air holes on the right hand side for the S3 air intake as the RS3 has its air intakes where the A3/S3's foglights are, so some holes needed to be drilled - VERY CAREFULLY, lol. The guys also masked up the whole front end and sprayed the crash bar matt black, so it wouldn't show through the honeycombe. They made an excellent job and I have to say I absolutely LOVE it!! xx

    Thanks so much, guys. I am incredibly chuffed to bits with it and the overall mean and moody yet bright and bold look of the black against the Imola. x

    I'm still pondering what to do with the fog grilles, Steve. Will get back to you on that one though, lol. Still eagerly checking Ebay at least a dozen times a day to see if I can spy any other RS3 grilles and if I do, I'd of course give you a very quick heads up x

    I've added a couple of pics with the bonnet up to show where the guys drilled the holes for the air intake. One guy was going to do it, but he chickened out and let Jim, the boss do it instead, lol. x

    Well, you know you have first dibs on the car when the time comes for me to sell, ..but that won't be for at least a couple of years yet. I still have a few more plans for her. Yeah, ..when I pull onto the outside lane of the dual carriageway, people's usual reaction is to immediately pull back onto the slow lane again, to let me past, lol. Thanks again, Sweetie. xx

    Aww cheers Wez, that really means a lot to me as that's my intention with every visual mod I make, ..have it appear as factory as possible. I know there's not much chance of making a bright yellow car look 'understated', but one thing - like most peeps on here - I really don't want to do is to 'chav it up' lol. xx

    Cheers lads, I'm glad you both think so. My other half keeps telling me not to make a 'boy racer' car out of my S3 and spoil it with all my modding, ..as if I would do such a thing, lol. xx

    I do like the RS3, but one thing I don't like are the big blank intakes where the fogs are on the S3. Think they could have done so much more with it than they did. x

    Problem is, the RS3 is not sold here and so they don't have the information. Or so I'm told. I even asked them to order in the grill for me and they told me they couldn't do it.
