    8p S3 grill. HELP.

    HI, i have bought myself a black edition grill, i have been searching online all week but can't find a guide i was sure i had saw before...
    so does anyone have a link for a step by step guide on how to change the grill, either with or with-out removing the bumper. Any tips etc of what to watch out for
    Thanks

    hi, best bet is to remove the bumper although some on here have swopped grilles with the bumper in situ. its not a big job to remove the front bumper

    You're very welcome, Dude. I watched the guy who fitted my new grille while he took the front bumper off and it literally took him 5 minutes. I'd say it would be easiest to do if you have someone else to help you pop the bumper back on again, just so you can align it properly. x
