    Anyone with a split grille tried one of these?

    Awesome - Jom S3 Look Grille - A3 (8P) Facelift, S3 Look, black, 04-07

    1st important thing, is there any way to put the Audi badge on something like this as I think they can look terrible without it. I bet it would be a bodge job getting a badge on there...

    2nd thing, are these good quality and do they fit well?

    I don't think that's for a split grille (8P1) A3. Looks like its meant to be a straight swap for a single grille (8P2) A3.

    I bought one of the ABT grilles and decided not to fit it and sold it on. I didn't think the quality was up to much. Try vinyl wrapping instead

    I've had an ABT grille, was awful, cheap and really bad quality! If i was you i'd just bite the bullet and do the conversion, that's what i did 1 month after i put the ABT grille on, ask if you need any advice on prices etc

    Right, thanks for all your help with this ABT grille its much appreciated, to sum it up its cheap tacky and not worth the £175 they charge for it (dont know if this includes shipping) thanks again though!
