    Rs3 style grill for a 2008 s3 front bumper

    I've been looking at buying an rs3 style grill for my car but the ones on eBay say not for s3 or s-line can anyone elaborate on this ?
    If it is the case does anyone know where I can get one that does fit ?
    Cheers Don

    There won't be an OEM one available as the the RS3 was only introduced in 2011

    Exactly the RS3 OEM only fit Facelift.

    The only way to have a similar style it is the grille that i have in my car.

    The A3 and S3 Pre facelift have the same grille.

    The best grille for the Pre Facelift is the RS6 grille, not cheap though.

    Dark Vader Half Sibling - My Lava Grey A3 - on Bentleys, lowered etc

    The S3 Grille is shorter, so it will leave a nasty gap at the bottom.
