    My friend picked up one cheap on eBay a few months ago for his Sprint Blue S3, it looks cracking, but I haven't seen any online since

    Keep an eye out on ebay and pistonheads. If im honest the optic grilles are quite rare to find second hand! Mostly see Chrome ones popping up. Might have to buy brand new and they are not cheap. Best bet would be to buy one off Nigel (NHN) will be cheaper than any main dealer. Bought my optic grille off ebay back in 2008 brand new for £150.
    And bought a chrome one off Nigel (NHN). Good luck with the search and get some photos up

    Buying it new gonna cost a bit. But will finish the outside of your car off nicely. How much are they? Sure paullie said £600+
    I need to start going on german ebay more, i missed a set of 19" S6/S8 alloys (Same style as the 8P3 S3 alloys). Want a set of them bad lol.

    I think this looks pretty sweet, ..it's done on Photoshop and isn't the Optics version of the RS3 grille, but still very cool just the same, lol. x

    Don't think they do, Steve. They would look MUCH better with the honeycombe of the RS3 grille. The 8P3 fog grilles have honeycombe, but it's too small to see clearly, ..so a bit of modding may be in order to get the full on RS look, lol. x

    It really is, i think i prefer it.. I like the Laminex + Alu grill.. That way i can solve the carbon mirror issue and not got them.. Question is how close of a match are the S3 mirrors to the RS3 alu grill

    Guys, I notice that the guy I bought my RS3 grille from also has a new RS6 optics grille for sale (it's got a funny square hole at the bottom of it, which looks a bit odd). He also says on the listing that he has many other parts for sale not listed and to ask him if there's anything specific you are looking to buy. Might be worth giving him a shout to see if he can source some other RS3 grilles as the one I bought and the RS6 one in this listing have obviously never been used before. x

    Well its done, im not 100% happy with it if im honest It was cut too short on either corner at the bottom of the grille and there a gap.
    Other than that it looks good. No photo as yet as the car dirty but will pm you a photo shortly.
    Im gonna get another RS6 grille and get it done again. Most people would be happy with it. But im fussy when it comes to my car and want everything perfect.
    Cheapest i've found another grille is £300 so once i've got the spare change will order another one. Only £200 to go

    Hmm, that's not so good about your grille, Ash . I'm a real fuss pot when it comes to my car too and wouldn't be 100% happy either, if it wasn't 100% spot on. I bet it does look good though and look forward to seeing your pics. More than likely no one but you would notice the slight flaw that you're thinking is there, but I know if it was me, I'd feel exactly the same. Maybe the same place you bought your last RS6 grille (I know it was nearer where I live than where you live, lol ) would have another one decently priced? x

    Cheers Paullie well i've had a proper look today it will do for a month or so. From a distance you cant notice but up close you can.
