    RS3 Grill interest/ questions

    I have just ordered an rs3 and should be getting it in around 14 days time. It has the standard aluminium look front grill and ideally i want the gloss black one.

    I have no idea how much these things are but my thought is to purchase a black one and then have the alu one to sell

    What sort of prices am i looking for a gloss black one if anyone knows and if there are any places suggested to purchase from?

    How much is the typical asking price if i were to sell the alu one. Obviously it will be brand new but il remove it from the car when i collect it or even ask audi to swap them before i pick it up

    Cheers guys

    Not sure there is such a thing as a Black RS3 grill mate.

    There is a Black S3 and A3 variation that will fit though. I have a new A3 Black Glossy one for sale in the classifieds. - Classifieds: Audi A3 8P 2008-12 Black Edition/Optics Grille

    There is a black styling package for the rs3 which gives black front full mesh grill and few other bits.

    I dont fancy the S3/A3 grill i want the full mesh

    Thanks anyway!

    Ah fair enough. Probably going to be quite hard to find one without paying a fortune for one from the dealer. Try eBay Germany.

    mate that looks very nice indeed!

    the reason i want gloss black so much is the fact the air intakes on the bumper are gloss black and so is the rear diffuser and with the tints i just think itl suit much better

    on a white car your grille is perfect

    props to you for that sir!

    this is my RS3 grill on the black audi, i stuck with the gunmetal grill as i liked the contrast between the grill and the car
    i paid about £350 for it off eBay Germany from a seller who like you swapped it out for a black one.

    car looks great mate!

    i dont mind spending some money as i will sell mine and get some back but if i sell for 400 then still paying another 228 for a black grill is daft if i can get one for around 500 id be happy

    Thanks mate!
    problem is that there aren't many for sale, have you asked the dealers to change over the grill for you? i have heard of guys doing this in the past and getting a decent price as they just bought the car from the dealer. I believe brodster did that on his S3

    well all your going to ask for is a discount on the new grill... the old grill is still yours to sell on after.

    I'm thinking about changing my grill to a black one but keep the brushed surround like I did on my S3.

    that sounds nice! its the gloss black intakes and diffuser that makes me not understand why a massive silver grill.. fair enough if you have aluminium pack but otherwise its like a sore thumb!

    I have the Alu pack but I'm with you the silver grill looks wrong with the black lower grills.

    I've had a look on German eBay and UK eBay I've rang everywhere under the sun and there is only oem available for 600+ pounds and a couple of replicas on eBay UK from Hong Kong etc that with postage are coming out at 480 so in gonna just get myself a black one from audi and il post mine up for sale on eBay and on here for 480 postage negotiable but rather pickup.

    S3 th. il pm you when it's available you have first refusal as you already mentioned your interest providing your happy with the price.

    what colour is the new car?
    have you not thought about having a black surround put on, like i did. if this is not enough black, have the matt aluminium professionally painted.

    The cars Daytona grey mate. I have a friend who owns a bodyshop and his thoughts are not to paint it as it would chip eaeasily

    im not sure I can imagine how it would look with just the surround done? Poor imagination haha

    i personally think it would look good on a grey car. the black would fit with the air intakes and the matt aluminium (its more like titanium) would give it some contrast. what wheels are on the car?
