Hey guys and girls, I was gobsmacked the other night to see a genuine RS3 black Optics grille for sale on Ebay with a Buy It Now price! I didn't have to think twice about it as I have always admired the RS6 grille conversion done by Mattandrew and have fancied something similar for my car for ages. In a moment of madness I clicked Buy It Now and it was mine! Have to say the seller from Osnabruck in Germany couldn't have been better, I only order it on Tuesday evening and it arrived this morning. It's PERFECT, with not a single mark on it and even better all the fixings are in exactly the same places as the S3 grille, ..so if I'm right, it should fit any of the facelift bumpers. Anyway, here's a little sneaky peak of it. x
The other thing that made me believe there wouldn't be an issue with fitment is this pic and a few others I found of the RS3 bumper with the standard S3 grille in situ, so should work just as well the other way round.
Will hopefully get it fitted in the next week, once I get my number plate holder for it.
