    Introduction & S3 Conversion -grill questions!

    Hey Everyone,

    I have been lurking round the forum for a while now and posting the odd random question..So here is a little introduction.

    Recently purchased an Brilliant black audi a3 2.0 TDI sport S-line 2004 but with facelift front end. I have been slowly modding it up since I purchased it around 3 months ago now!

    I have completed the following mods-Remap with upgraded intercooler,19'' rs4 alloys power coated in dark anthracite (which are far too wide-as the stick out on the front a little and catch on the rear with a full car) Rear full Tints, leather centre arm wrest and currently colecting parts for RNS-e instal!

    Also purchased S3 front bumper and rear diffuser/vallance from TPS on friday which are currently in the spray shop!

    I have a few question regarding the conversion..

    1. Will my sports grill fit into the s3 front bumper- Im guessing no ?

    2. I Realy like the rs6 honey comb front grill and wish to put that on when I instal the s3 front bumper..Is the easiest way to do this just to buy the rs6 grill? I have read that a few people have purchased an rs4 grill and cut it to fit the s3 outer ring...but seams a little messy- Slightly confused on this topic!

    Would realy apreciate any help!

    Regards,

    Tom

    so im guesing the only way to acheive an rs3 style grill on my car is to get an rs6 style grill chop it up and stick it to an s3 outer edge?

    Unless you can get an RS6 grill at a good price (the only ones I've found on ebay are around £300+) I wouldn't chop one up.

    Pretty much, although you'd have to swap some things across.

    What things would you have to swap accross? Does any one have a part number for it so I can order it from tps? With washer jet holes.

    And a part number for rs3 grill if it fits the 2009+. S3 front bumper?

    Cheers ford
