    RS3 grill modded and fitted

    Well I got my RS3 grill back yesterday from the body shop and it looks great in gloss black . So gave the grill badge surround and grill surround a few coats of polish and wax and here it is . much better than the titanium finish . well I think anyway . I also made myself a plinth for my number plate . please excuse the tatty number plate I am still waiting for new short pressed metal one to arrive .


    Before





    After











    I also drilled some holes into my grill for my cold air intake . Probably the most stressful holes I have ever drilled lol





    All comments are welcome

    Car looks great. Will you be putting the S3 badge back on or leave it as is?

    Personally I like the aluminium mirrors as sets it apart

    Love it apart from the number plate, it looks too skinny for my liking. If I'm being pedantic, the width to the left and right of the text should match up to the width between the top and bottom of the text.

    Looks lush, they are trying to slowing murder your car, once you do the wing mirrors, Wheels, lights, tints, diffuser, roof will be next.

    I'm not sure with changing the mirrors but deffo get the lower valance of the bumper done... Looks a bit funny like that.
    also I agree that the plate looks a little funny but I think that's because the plate is quite high, not that its mounted high as the mounting points are built into the grill.

    i matched the grill to the valance, alloys and mirrors

    Looks good. Seems like this is the only site which do show plates?? All other UK sites I've seen arent allowing me to have no spacing as its doesnt comply with the law
