    Bloody oath mate lol

    They delivered it while I was still asleep and managed to get it over the gate on side of house which is like a jungle of tall grass that I never access lol. Had no idea it was there until I checked my tracking and it was mentioned in the results. Was a exciting moment.

    Anyone here fitted the rs3 grill? Looking to do it tomorrow and want the number plate holder to be able to remove it but currently the bolts are just spinning. Anyone know a good way to remove the plate holder?

    The centre of the screw pulls out and comes apart. Mine came off fairly easy.

    I'm going to Velcro the plates to the holder so at shows I can take off the plate / holder. I'm having to glue on the plate holding brackets thought. Will get pics up tomorrow when doing it.

    All fitted , well almost. I need brackets for the park assist front sensors which were part of my oem grille. Number plate will raise up one more notch to cover the metal protector bar behind grille which is exposed! Fitted dark chrome rings which I've had sitting around for a while.

    If anyone has tips on brackets for the sensors please let me know.

    Thx man pretty happy with the look just need to get the parking sensors working for the sake of having them lol.

    Tried to fit the foam protector back on but seem to not fit. Did you have to rework it?

    Ah ok thanks. Will retry the foam fit when I get sensor brackets!

    Zen I noticed u got some brackets fitted on other rs grilles from your website pics but none for rs3. Are they able to fit the rs3 ones to?

    Pics of my actual PDCs I need to mount. (Part no. 420919275)






    Came across a few of these pics looking for some hope...

    Rs4 grille with pre fit brackets




    2 different type of brackets below:

    Type 1


    Type 2



    Wonder if these may work!

    Dear oh dear. After searching for months and debating I bought an RS3 grille from a company on fleabay which was in "America" pictures of the OEM grille etc. I purchased and it's only just cleared customs, anyway he's since changed the pictures and stated he's from china now so I'm not happy! I saw this seller on eBay too but the honeycomb inside the Audi sign was too big for my liking. However if I knew a group buy was on I would of been all over it. GUTTEd!! So I'm admiring all your lovely Rs3 grilles whilst mine should arrive soon but god knows what it'll look like. Any left? Gloss black, Chrome sign just in case I dislike the version I receive?

    Wish I could just leave the plate off. We considered a sticker number plate left side but the Mrs spoke and we'll you know the rest

    So mine arrived today after paying the customs charge of £25. It's identical to the ones you guys have received by the looks of it however I am still disappointed as I have definitely overpaid. £300 total. I think I'll feel better once it's on, tempted to do it now albeit bound to be dark when I finish

    Cheers fella - I couldn't get a good overall view with your other shots. Might have to take the plunge and do this on mine. Thx.

    The "rs3" badge looks really bad ! I paid £275 posted for my genuine black edition rs3 grill ! Bargain from eBay.

    Well I've already bought a rear s3 badge which I've heard if you heat up the rs3 badge it will come off then replace with the OEM s3 badge. So that should be that sorted. You definitely found a bargain there then, I've been looking for yonks! Just like everyone probably

    That's a good idea !! Yeah I was looking everyday and had notifications set too go off when "rs3 grill" was listed. Wasn't even on eBay an hour and I brought it. Couldn't believe it when he said £275 posted :L ! Read the listing about 8 times. He did have some awesome cars and a massive garage so probs wasn't too fussed and wanted rid of it.

    Right place at the right time, unfortunately £700 from Audi is pretty much a p**s take so something half as good will definitely do (for now). That's a good idea too. The one I bought had an OEM grille pictures up which I thought was too good to be true, ended up being a copy even though said OEM but I can't be arsed with sending it back as it took 3 weeks to arrive and costs etc! Well mate if you ever want rid of it, give us a nudge

    Did people leave the radiator padding in or out? I painted mine matt black but can't decide if it'll give a bit extra protection on the brittle grille?
